So you bought it finally ! Congratulations
I'm just returned from Egypt where I really enjoyed my R07 12, a green monster..... The set up I used is what provided from the factory and it worked fine.
which color did you take ? By the way I bought also the Rebel 9
Yes, Faber. Most of the posts on this forum finally convinced me to go for this kite
Since there seems to be a supply problem with this kite I could lay my hands on a yellow/black one, which is very nice looking in the sky (I do not care much, but all others were pink/black, no thanks
Since I have the Rebel I use the green setting, including the adjustments of the steeringlines to green. I have set-up the steering lines as loeuftok says here. Due to the heavy winds for a whole week (25 -35kn!!) I have not tested the Rhino again with this new set-up. But I have added some pigtails to my Rebel to compensate for the line differences. I do not like to adjust the bar for each session
Hope to test the baby soon again!
Why do I use the green set-up? My length is 180cm and this is the maximum distance I still can control the bar in overpowered conditions, using a waist harness. This is not very comfortable (used to have a 14cm depower line on my Vegas05's), but most of the time I pull the bar or use the sliding stopper to release some stresses on my arms during cruising.
