Nice, you are a creative mind!
I dont understand why it must be hardwood but it looks beautiful. What kind of hardwood is it?

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

:D:D

Yes, you know I looked on Amazon and found a 1080p for like $24.00 US.

So, I did get it I will try to make a mount for it. But only one for now.

found my old tandem-bar.
need to weld another size downtube on a different angle on it
because it was made for the Libre V-max wich is now turned into Crab 1 & II..
Recycling 2.0.. :D
then i polished, lubricated and painted it and it is ready for action!!


i photoshop my own buggy for the complete set-up.
the version with the midi-tyres has the old Libre V-max axle wich is mounted closer and lower
to the re-bar frame under the seat.
and it's also possible to ride it with the full-size frontfork and midi-rear. that's gonna be fun..!!
oversteer to-the-max.. but anything for fun!!

i gave the yellow tandem in the previous post to a friend of mine
because riding whitout a roll-bar isn't working for me because of a bad back...

so kitebuggy tandemseason is officially open..!!
because THIS is so much fun!!

I wonder what the record is for the number of buggies linked together. If you have the numbers it might be worth a shot.
