no he's not i've been flying them for over a month now, proto and serial kites..... lol.

if you are going to use it primarily on snow then keep the standard leash on, ditch the rotor leash. the four 9m i've set up for people out of the bag have all underflown. they do not sit over your head on full depower, and therefore pull like a f-in train even when depowered.

to remedy this when you lay the kite out you'll notice that where the middle line splits at the kite side there is a short centre line with two sets of knots on it. move the knot closest to the kite, top knot, away from the kite in 5mm increments until the kite flies comfortably directly over head, maybe even overflies a very small amount.

this should give you all your depower back...

when you relase the bar and the kite falls on the leash the tips of the kite should not come together as it falls, the bottom of the kite should fold up and the kite should come down to the ground as cleanly as you can reverse a blade using the brakes.

if this does not happen move the bottom set of knots on the leader lines down towards the bar in 5cm increments. also make sure that when you strap and chicken loop depower the kite the leash does not pull the outside lines in.

regarding inflation on snow, just weight down the trailing edge with plenty of snow, clear the vents, hook into it, depower and step back until it sits up a little, let it inflate a little maybe 20% and then step right back until the snow comes off and up it goes.

i'd set it up on dry land the first time.
you'll love the kite.

thats it. mail me on simonatwork@hotmail.com if you get stuff

glad you like the kite eric, they've been well regarded by everyone who tried them, once that duff batch of initial 9's was corrected.

over head in light winds you can get it to overfly, in about 10mph this just doesnt happen, though you can get them to collapse right at the edge of the wind if you underjump them massively.

you'll find the kite speed up massively as the wind picks up. they do need a bit of wind to turn.

once you fly it in about 20mph you'll really find out what everyone is raving about. give them a little tweek of power to start a turn and they are rapid.

you'll also find that at full trim and full depower together that the rear lines go slack a bit, slowing them down again, this feels strange at first, but is really helpfull once the wind gets above 25mph as it helps to keep the speed of the kite consistent in its wind range bewteen 10-35mph.


once you get used to it a bit more in decent wind you'll find that you can fly it totally just by the feedback you can feel at the bar.

best of luck.
