Title: Twisted wings anyone?
Post by: SUPeter on August 14, 2020, 05:20:50 AM
I have a Gong Wing 7M that has a definite twist in the last wing segments on one side.  Almost 5 degrees.  Having made my own wings, I can understand how easy it is to get the angles correct and symmetrical.  I'm really not sure if one side is twisted down or the other side is twisted up.  It does make certain maneuvers like tacking a little hard on one side versus the other side.  The wing just doesn't want to roll over very easily.  I've emailed Gong Galaxy but have yet to receive a response.  Has anyone else noticed this when viewing their inflated wing on the flat ground and does it really make a difference?  I will try to post a pic, but don't count on it since I usually struggle with that sort of thing.  Thanks all

Twisted internal bladders have been known to make kites twist. Nothing to lose by removing it and reinstalling.

It's not a bug, it's a feature--helps your weak side.
