Re: Cabrinha fx 2018 - trimming setting on wingtip

I think the kite says 'slower turning' the way it does because it will actually feel like it is turning slower, and will require more input to make it turn - so to the less proficient rider it may feel like the safer slower option - even though it does actually have the potential to turn faster if y...

Re: self launch - minimize kite damage

Yep - as above, just walk further round into the wind, dragging the wingtip round only very slightly, until the last minute.

Re: Trying to identify model

The kite I learned on! CO2 with Recon2 system. I liked it and never hurt myself! (that said, I only owned it about 6 months before buying a more modern Omega HD). Relaunch wasn't best but it flew great.

I find that on the A setting smaller kites are a bit faster turning than I like, and its easy to loose track...

Hard shell harness truly is a huge advancement.
Never used one - and I do have a bad back. Are they that good? My main past time is on the TT, mainly hooked in, with a bit of unhooked.
