Can someone please explain how this works?
I want to get one for each of my fuels, but I havent been able to find a description/clear picture of how it is set up...

Thanks a lot!

Have a look at "reverse launch", you see lot of foil kiters using the same technique. Basically scrounges the TE so the kite lifts up a couple of feet

I see it has some kind of fiberglass batten/poles that are included (On the internet).

Do they just go into the tips of the kite, or like outer struts or what?
