Re: Help needed on Trim settings

If your wing tips are flaring you could be under-inflating your kite. This will cause them to flare especially on delta's which tend to have thin leading edges at the wingtips.

OK 5 lines North bar, bow kites (Fuse) I tend to ride with the bar close to me With my current settings, this means that the kite is over-trimmed, and flaring outwards quite badly As a result, I have to almost stop, slow down, bear away down wind with a big kite action deep in the wind window This h...
