      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. That was a non-foiling kite.
  2. Has any working boat been built with a lifting foil that had a hinge outside or at the edge of the hull? I guess you would say kanting keelers, but that is just the pivot point, not an actual hinge of some kind.
  3. Drone anarchy

    Can you elaborate on the controller you used? And the differences between the sim and real drone flying?
  4. They really use lbs? And it ranges between 1 and 4 digits of precision?
  5. Ah. I guess I was thinking that the end on the person would be able to be released under pressure. The end on the deck too?
  6. Perhaps an application for a soft shackle?
  7. Donovan GP26 starts production in Turkey

    This is the new thread:
  8. Seems like there's no info available yet. It's not on Stagg's website or facebook page. Just a teaser on the facebook page.
  9. Donovan GP26 starts production in Turkey

    Please post a link here when you create the new thread! And, uh, this is ANARCHY! No one gets to just decide what threads will live and die.
  10. You should search the forums for 4th mode. Get yourself a Mac26x!
  11. I don't know where you are seeing that. If anyone is saying that, it is because they are lazy. The whole program created the advantage. They could not have done it without the people they had all through their program. Learning to sail the boat was a big part of the program. Any large complicated effort in the world, including all high level sport, is, at the root, mostly determined by management and resources.
  12. Can't figure out if I think heeling to windward is harder or easier than keeping the thing vertical. I guess they heeled the AC50s to windward a little in some circumstances. The sailors are going to have to fly those things carefully.

    JD Power is all about surveying the customer. RepairPal (full disclosure: I work there) uses repair data. Results are pretty similar, but RP has more data and detail. https://repairpal.com/reliability

    I agree. And it even almost seems like they are trying to do that stuff to get the footage. All fun and games until someone dies.
