Flexi foil sabre 1 mods needed


Hello.

Ive recently purchased a flexifoil sabre 1 9.5m and my inital impresions where that the brake lines felt quite inefective along with the landing mechanism but feel that it had a lot of potential. There is also a lot of tip fold. Ive read that a lot of this can be amended but cant find the info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

From U2U I traded with a former PKFer about 9 years ago.

"I have been reliably informed that the mod to the Sabre one that was going about is a six inch or 15cm extension to the crossover and this could be done at the kite end or the line end after the crossover lines pass through the small rollers so should not be a problem to do this mod yourself a couple of feet of 135kg breaking strain line and your sorted no sending anything anywhere just an hour or so of your time and the wing tip tuck problem disappears so I am reliably informed not tried it yet myself but will do maybe this weekend."

Hope that helps.

ATB,
Sam
