it will sound unbelievable, and I still don't know how it happend, but read this story and let me know if you can confirm this or if it was just luck:
while on Coche, my buddy used a R4 20. He said after dropping the kite the relaunch is nor problem. I told him, that wasn't a real relaunch of a kite, since he dropped it at the wind window,so it was always on its side.
I said, a real relaunch is,if the kite lays on its frontube, all the way.
Ok, I see hiw kite going down the other day and was looking, since it was his first "real" relaunch with a 20 sqm kite.....now it happened.....one of his tips went up straight from the water, like a Recon or Windwing system. After 3 attemps the kite went up in the sky !!!!!!!
I couldn't believe it, thought firstit was another kiter. No, it was him!
Toddo and I were waiving at each other and didn't understand it. We communicated that he was a lucky fellow. We got another chance: a little bit laterthe kite went down again. Toddo and I were close by to watch what is going to happen...and againa, even faster, kite up on one side and straight up in the sky....
He did it 3 times that day. He came to the beach and said,how easy that relaunch is with a 20,because we scared him about that bening very difficult.....He said, he just pulled on one steering line (arm lenght) and up it went....
Pls note: dead flat water, no waves!!!
I have to test this next time I'm on the water, because this is just unbelievable.
Who else experienced this, also on other kites???
So we don't need a restart system, it works without!!!!
PS: a normal R4 20, no modifications on it at all!
