Thanks for the nice comments everyone.

I'm guessing Meranti or Teak, I'm not sure.
It is very heavy and dense.
And what I already have laying around I'm not gonna buy.

Being a carpenter by trade it is easy for me to make things with
and out of wood..

I've attempted a rotating camera using a RC sail servo and testing knob, but ran into shake problems due to an unstable mount approach.
Haven't revisited it. You can see it in this Blokart video I made.
The mount is visible at 1:50

a testrun in 8 Bft is not ideal, but i wanted to try anyway
unfortunatly the kite, a PKD Joy 2m2 snowkite got damaged in the 1st run.
and a bigger kite was for me too gusty and risky.

not much footage to edit but just enough for a movie.
better luck next time.. :D

Damage is minor. I have the same one from wich i can use the bridle for parts so it can probably get a second life,
and that song sticks like gum in your head so i had to use it.

Pretty remarkable ride. :thumbup:
How is hot launching in those winds? With a regular bug, it is preferable to point yourself downwind but with the crab not so easy?

the advantage in a Crab is that when you hot-launch in any wind you allready leane into the side-bar,
as in a regular buggy when you point downwind you need to brace yourself much more to prevent an eject.
(because than you have a real hot-launch hahahahaha....)

that is also when you go 'off-road' wich i did many thimes in a regular buggy, when pulling yourself up on a
sanddune or hill you risk an eject especially when you stall halfway and loop to come further up.
In the crab sitting sideway's you allready lean max to the sidebar and is looping to get further an higher up not an issue.

the same as switching direction in high speed as you see in this video: click here and see at 3:50
the moment i've slowed down enough, trowing and turning the crab, trying to keep maximum momentum and facing a downwind-position i can loop all i want because it will pull me to the sidebar.
and when the speed picks up i correct steering to the perfect downwind-course for max speed.
ofcourse you know all about that Redsky

Awesome video! I always wondered how crab buggies worked, cool to see it in action.
