Have anyone of you stacked kites? I am wondering about stacking my BT kites. Does anyone have tips? :D :D

stack the biggest one on the top, use 7m or more stack lines, and rig the top one for fast turning, fast flying, ie more depower, the bottom smaller one for slow turning, more power. You can launch a stack single handedly by sanding up one tip on each kite just like you would with one kite, except make sure the stack lines are all equal tension. Check my pics at http://www.geocities.com/timfriedel , there are a few stack pics and comments in my kitelog...

:!: Tip :!:

Play beachball if the wind drops down to a level where you start thinking about stacking your kites!

:wink:

But: I seems to work.
