helix metal binding,
A small booklet, written
by Raoul FOSSET in 1994, published by DRACHEN FOUNDATION,
and re-printed by kiteaerialphotography.net under the authority
of webmaster Peter BULTS.
It's a good summary
of the kap technique. The biography of Raoul is very interesting
, and , only for that, if you don't know this great man
of the Belgium and world wide kite community, you should
read this booklet.
The plans of the rokkaku
and of the delta are classic, but given the excellence of
kites built by Raoul, they are considered to be followed
exactly. The pull developped by a rokkaku 2,4 x 1,8m with
a 9 m/s (20mph) wind is a bit overestimated. Far from 50Kg
(100Lbs) a pull of 16 Kg is more realistic. Raoul can scold
the kiters who have give him this wrong information.
Go quickly through the 3
pages on the rigs, and check carefully the other paragraphs
where you may find the good tip, or the detail you were
missing for kap success.
