Info about caution answer

Postby damsck » Wed Sep 20, 2006 3:35 pm

Hello

I just bought a 9 m answer and would need some help from persons who also own this type of kite.

My problem is that i'm french (which is not really the problem :lol: )and almost nobody in france is using caution kites (very few importation).

As a result, i've got 2 problems for which nobody can help me here.

First with the release system that i tested when i first used the kite, but since then it's working much to well.

As soon as the kite pulls even softly, the pin of the release system is pulled off.
It seems that the "velcro" (i'm not sure this word is correct in english) that should thighten the pin is not strong enough or maybe i'm did not put the release system in the correct position.
I should have checked first exactly how to put back the release system in position but it's too late and i would be very grateful to any of you to explain me how to put it back in the correct position or eventualy give me a link showing how to do.

Second, from the only 2 times i used my kite (with the release system by-passed which is not safe :roll: ) i could not feel any depower when pushing the bar.
Should i change something in the position of my lines?
For info as i used the kite in light wind only, my fore lines were connected in way of the last knots present on the bar and kite connections (hope you understand what i mean).

Thanking you in advance and sorry for the faults

Definately sounds like you don't have it put back together correctly. Take a look at figure 2 page 8 in the user's manual. It shows you exactly how to put it back together.

Set the lines up on the recommended knots at it should fly fine. There has been several threads on this forum regarding tuning and flying the Answer in light winds. Do a search and you should be able to find more info.
