If you look how the B main connects to the pulley now, just wrap it 2 or 3 more times then out through the loop end like now. The effect is it will shorten B in the profile AND when depowered. B being shorter in the profile makes the kite more stable in general and easier to control. B being shorter in depower reduces the depower but also makes the kite less likely to fly forward. You can just limit the depower by keeping the bar pulled in a bit. So by just reducing B in the profile you can maintain the depower and still have all the benefits by just using the bar . If you just want to have B shorter in the profile you can do so by instead lengthening C and Z. Shortening B 1 is the same as lengthening C 2 and Z 4 in the profile. In reality you can change the amount you adjust C to Z, even not adjusting one and only the other. Lengthening C alone can increase stability because B is then allowed to tension more before C or Z engage. It can also increase lift because the canopy between C and Z becomes more curved or cambered instead of a flat AoA type change. If you want to do it this way start just by lengthen both in ratio C2:Z4 though.dlprince69 wrote:I have a 12m A15 and 18m A15 - Both fly nice as supplied by Pansh. Both have a slight tendency to collapse at the wingtip when close to the ground on either side of the wind window. This is only an issue when trying to land with assistance from a ground person. (No over fly issues at the zenith) - To correct this slight issue, the only adjustment needed was a single figure 8 knot in the orange B line attached to the pulley.
I also have a 8m Aurora 2 and 12m Aurora 2 - Both had over fly / collapse issues as supplied by Pansh. Consistent collapse at the wingtip when close to the ground on either side of the wind window. - To correct this issue, the only adjustment needed was as follows: On the 8m Aurora 2 - Loop the B line through the pulley twice. On the 12m Aurora 2 - Loop the B line through the pulley three times. Now both kites fly perfect. No wingtip collapse, no overfly! Very happy.
