I am once more working on a kite designed by Sandro Macchi. This time it's a Delta for light wind.
I have added also my first sketches for a panel layout below. I think it will go for C version
But, Please read first below, what Sandro himself is writing about the KLIPP.
This kite comes out after the experience of construction of a Thermik 201 (size "180"; I had seen in Slovenia one flying very well, made by Mazzetto Arnaldo...); the Thermik flies well only adding something like 18 grams of lead weight at low end of spine... this sounds to me not so good and so I tried a configuration in between Thermik and classic Clipper D L
the kite starts with nose angle 56° + 56° = 112° total
wings lenght equal to spine (folding is very practical)
keel design is fully new and it is well possible to make a double wall version even if the kite doesn't show a tendency to dive
it is a delta kite suitable for low - very low wind that shows a good overall equilibrium
SPINE 200 (if + pocket 203-204) cm
WING 200 spar 165 cm
SPREADER near 156 cm
overall wing-span 334 cm
