Waist harnesses today don't rotate - thats why they are so good, and won't slide up. If it rotates, something is wrong I would say... You normally have a tight velcro to get it to sit snug. It would be better just to get a spreader bar that slides sideways, on a seat OR waist. Many harnesses has one...

Seat or Waist does not make any difference. Riding the knot like you say, is one solution - well, I think the only one. If you are using bridles - you get the same problem. Thats one of the reasons why I stopped using bridles - when riding waves down the line, where you need a lot of bar movement be...

I am not posting the layered file, it is only a jpg image. The LINKS are to the layered images, so anyone can use these to draw and modify their own solutions... There is no reason not to use what has been drawn for your own inventions. So I just set the layered files up if anyone would use those - ...

I honestly don't think the answer lies in the segmented LE. There are definitely other design parameters that causes a kite to jellyfish or not. If you use a lot of sewing (=added weight) to get a rigid segmented LE - this is the same as pumping the kite up hard, as Dwight says - you will just reduc...

Topic: How important is Line lenght to kite power?
Replies: 7

Right, an "old" topic. To sum it up shortly: 1. Changing line length does not change kite power at all ! 2. Longer lines gives a longer power stroke - so it is easier to keep it powered, and better powered, in light winds. 3. Too long lines is really bad for jumping and tricks. As said - try for you...

Yes - something is wrong, because it acts just the opposite way of what it should ! Or maybe what you say, is not what is actual happening - because I can not see how you can connect the lines wrong, with only 3 lines on the Psycho. If the lines are set up normally, you should NEVER pull the rotor l...

Whenever I landed leading edge down, I just pulled the rotor leash about 1 meter in (15.5m2) - and it flew up backwards and turned around by itself (just like a reverse bridle on a LEI), and you could fly forward again fully depowered to avoid the pull.

That worked easy for me !
