Dont get me wrong, I find these kites pretty easy too. I haven't had a problem flying them on the "stock" settings. Flies fine. But I found tuning can really change the flying dynamics on this kite. Which I like to mess around with and find the right feel for me. Turned a sweet session, into an EPIC session last time.I find these kites pretty easy. Must be me, but I never spend much time tuning things. I pull it out of the bag, set it up, fly it and maybe use the trip strap if things get strong, or to let he kite breathe... I like them for the ease of use. More so on the Renegade, but the Screamer is pretty easy too.
Sounds like I have accomplished a similar tune up on my 9m with a slightly different method.The best way to set up this kite is to put the flying lines on the 1st knot closest to the Mickey Mouse ears on the bar just above the Depower Strap.
This will be better for unhooking the kite.
BTW Youri Zoon wears a helmet during some moves in his latest video. Ive seen Hadlow wear a helmet too.if you wear a helmet when you ride you'll probably love it
Totally agree! I came from kites with 200% depower on my old kites if you let the bar out. Seriously the kite would just drop out of the air if you let go of the bar. That is not a good thing! It got frustrating constantly having to play with the stopper ball.I personaly like the fact that when you push the bar all the way out, you still have a little power in the kite. Coming from a C-kite background, that is what I am used to...and when I miss a handle pass, it still gives me a few seconds to recover. So, to each their own.... But, I think for those who like C-kites, then you probably also like some power left in your kite and not the 100% depower feature... so, a little confused with pdkites comments, if he likes C kites...
Anyway, everyone has their preference. I flew a bunch of 2010 kites this year, and ended up going with a mixed quiver of Screamers and Renegades. For me, the best kites I have flown....
