Not having an IDS before, everything was new to me. I hit the QR, up the line went the bar. I walked up the 5th line and went up the 2 front lines. Surprise; the kite went up in the air, across the window and flagged on the other side. Watch your fingers.
The system just doesn't totally depower like advertised. To make it worse, there is no other way I have found to land the kite alone. The best method was the Jon Modica method on the older Cabrihna's. This new IDS doesn't come close.
Sorry Cabrihna, but it's back to the drawing board.

No, its not only for the Ozone kite. This is a pretty general method that works with many kites. I know other people who use this for other non-Ozone kites. It requires that kite depowers plenty (and will sit on the edge of the window) and that you can reach the top front line to pull it around into the wind at which point it will drop into rest position. Like many other methods your mileage may vary and it may not work equally well in all conditions (like nuking wind). Some kites require one to pull in both afront lines to get access to the top line.

That is my practice with a Cabrinha Crossbow 11 2010.
I`m also self launching without adds on.
