Thanks for your replies. The kite is a 12m and it wasn't light wind conditions. We had 16-18kts, so properly powered for the 12m. Thanks for the link to a previous thread about the same topic. I will check with my friend to see it the bar is the correct bar for the size kite. I didn't know that bandit bars are made specifically for the size kite. No JMF it was not connected in suicide mode. However even then it should still flag on the mini 5th line as I had released the chicken loop release.

I thought it had to do with the front line settings as the front pulleys did to seem to pivot the way other bridle systems do. However you can't change the front bridle positions. Interesting! It's my first experience with a "modern" kite no flagging immediately. My old Rrd Obsession used to retain a little power (10%) they say, but not like what the bandit did yesterday. Scary!

The Bandit 4 had different lenght of the safety line for each model. That was the only difference. The B5 and the B6 don't have this anymore. Just try to move the yellow stopper ball further up as advised in the thread I posted.
