Yes, squalls must be avoided.RickI wrote:His properly functioning flat kite reportedly failed to depower during the initial portion of the lofting. That is when most of his movement was up. Reducing the angle of attack works with primary forward motion but perhaps to a lesser degree when a major component is up. I am working on a writeup from an uplift lofting incident in OBX when the the kite failed to depower again during the "up portion" of the flight. Normal kite operation, SHOULDN'T include dealing with uplift lofting in my opinion. I believe the solution involves avoiding the Operator Error that leads to the problem in the first place.
