Great vid, thanks.
Marc, Andres or any other psychotics
Is the Psycho meant to slam down on its trailing edge like that when you use the leash.
My mastair curls up into a ball and floats down really slow, so you also have time to relaunch as it drifts down before it touches the ground. Also the kite touches down really smooth, wacking it down like that every time can't do the kite much good.
Is it designed like that or is the leash set up different? Further down the brake lines?

i think they might have editied the speed on that, givent the rate it twitches as it comes down.


however, as with all flysurfers, if it comes down too fast just walk towards it slowly as it nears the ground.

Gottcha,
Yeah looked fast, fast enough to bounce the kite. Looked like the way it backs down if you pull down a bit on the brake lines.

nice video but 'm surprised there was no footage of any bigger longer jumps, if the psycho hype is true I would of expected the sponsored riders to be going huge (there was plenty of wind)

biggest air looked about 20ft with a hangtime of about 4 seconds to me.

anyone got any footage of the pyscho going really high?

The question to whether or not the kite should fold up like a mastair or warrior and come down slowly has not been answered. Or do the Pychos just fly backwards to the ground. If so why have they dropped the old safety system?

I own a 15 & a 9 psycho and neither of them come down as nicely as the mastairs, especially when the trim loop is pulled in. In this case they flap about in the air and generating an uncomfortable amount of pull. I am yet to receive the rotor leashes so this may then change. On this subject do any of the rotor leash users have any feedback on reverse relaunching without the help of the blue cross line that was needed for the old safety system? Are you all wearing gloves now or is there another trick? Can the blue line be left on??
