Hi new to forum!

Postby Ralfy1211 » Sun Oct 10, 2010 8:03 pm

I'm Ralf 29 from the Uk.

Been kiting for a few years, only just got into buggying but loving it.
Bought a kitesurfing kite the other week, a slingshot diesel 5m.
No idea on year etc
Or any idea on how to rig it?
It's four lines from the bar, on a depower system?
Which lines go where? I'm a little confused? There seems to be pigs tails and metal rings.
What is the autopilot system!?

If there is anyone out there who could help it would be really appreciated!
Or... If there is anyone local who would like to come and show me how to rig and fly this kite.
(in exchange for a few pints)
I would be so grateful!

Cheers Ralfy

normally the outer lines go to the back of the kite, the front lines to the front and in the middle of the bar.

But I assume the Diesel has a kook proof system, so you can only connect the back lines to the back of the kite and front to front. check if it has it, then you can always control if the lines are correct.
