Depower vs longer steering line ?

Postby Lars Madsen » Wed Nov 16, 2016 9:15 am

After changing the depower rope on the bar for fs sonic 11 I got to much back stall.
I want to make it less backstall
Q is it the same result to depower 5-10cm or make steering line 5-10 cm longer?
In my head it will make the same result, but there bin so much debate about the mixer system so i am a little confused .

Right now I have just taken down 10 cm of the depower , some haw it make the landing of the kite easy, because I just lossen the depower op and I can land the kite by only holding the bar.:.-)

Answer: YES, if by depower, you mean make the front lines 5-10 cm shorter.
