Hi,

I am fairly new to kiting and i have recently bought a second hand 12m Eclipse Thruster on Ebay. The kite looks to be in good condition and it came with the original bar and lines that were unused.

I have used the kite a few time's but i can't get it to fly very well. It is really jittery in the air and seems to have little control of the power. I have tried the line adjustments but this doesn't make much difference.

Can anyone let me know what I am doing wrong?

Any advise would be greatly appreciated!

What do you mean by really jittery? Maybe someone could help if you explained

Your kite sounds like its under-sheeted( back lines not tight enough)

Have an experienced kiter help you out so you can tune the kite properly.

Make sure all your lines are even attach all lines to one point and when you have the strap set at full power pull In on the bar all lines should be tight& even. If you have a 08 kite connect your front lines to the first knot on the lines and connect your back lines to the middle knot at the kite
