History of the Nasa Wing:
Engineer Francis Rogallo developed for the Apollo space project a remparachute. The Nasa-Wing is a development of this remparachute.
Rogallo was commissioned by NASA for designing several kites, which have formed an important basis for the development of the current hang gliders, parakites and sport kites.
Flight characteristics of the Nasa Wing:
Although the Nasa-Wing is supplied standard as 2-line kite, the design is very simple to build to a 4-line kite for the larger kites. The larger sizes are available in a 4-line version. The 4-line version is easier to control, you can trim the kite to the wind. This allows you to arrange the pull of the kite.
The well thought-out design of the Nasa offers the largest pull a m², of all the power kites today. The slow flight of the Nasa makes him an ideal powerkite, and suitable for powerkitings/ buggykiting / snow/landboarding. The Nasawing has a pull in abundance, regardless of its orientation in the wind window (flight zone of the kite).
Starting is easy, put the Nasawing flat on his back and pull the lines slowly. The Nasa will bolt on by the wind and is ready for the start. A short pull is enough for the Nasa to go in the air.
The 4-line Nasa Wing powerkite can be controlled with the included quad handles. The kite lines are the link between the pilot and the kite. These lines are wound on a winder, the lines on top of the winder are the power lines and should be attached to the top of the quad handles, with a lark's head knot. The other end of the lines is attached to the main bridle of the Nasa Wing. The thinner lines are the brake lines and are attached to the bottom of the quad handles with a lark's head knot, the other end of the line is attached to brake bridle of the Nasa Wing kite. By combining pulling and tilting, the Nasa Wing is easy to control and flies it in all desired directions. If the Nasa Wing is crashed and in a wrong position, you can start the kite backwards. To do this, pull the brake lines.
In short, a great Buggy, Snow and Landboard kite for anyone who wants to take the first steps in the power kite sport.
The Nasa-Wing 80, 120 versions are 2-line Fun kites, 150 and 170 are a ideal Fun-quads, the larger Nasa-Wings are real pure pull kites.
The Nasawing9 Depower is suitable to fly with 3 lines and controlbar. You can find the technical data by the product.
