Auto-RIG 2013

KAP-RIG 2013 (unfortunately demolished in the meantime)

Unfortunately, this RIG no longer exists, as it fell out of the kite line during an unprofessionally prepared mission and disintegrated into its individual parts on the asphalt of Dortmund’s Fredenbaumplatz.
For the sake of completeness, however, I will continue to list it as an item of equipment, especially as I have listed the individual weights and acquisition costs for this assembly.
