thank you all - really helpful stuff. i had a quick fly of the bunny on the beach today on upwind settings and there certainly feels like there is more 180 degree quick flick ability. Will the kite drift as well on these settings as on the downwind set-up?If the forecast holds I should be able to try it out on the water tomorrow. Can anyone share their experiences of the single line front set up - is that more of a c-kite arc turn?
To be honest I'm only a newbie on this kite, been at it for 13 seasons but not long on this beast. But i have flown many may kites from every era. I have come from more high aspect kites, and went the smoke for a more plug and play all rounder and for its wave riding ability. Hence I'm used to a kite breathing and developing its own apparent wind, so the upwind setting suites me, i like Speed in the kite. Also when looping I find you can kill the power more quickly, I'm still not used to its power band!! And to my surprise it does indeed have a better 180 degree turn. As to its drift ability, let us know, theoretically it shouldn't drift as well as on the down wind setting, but it still might drift as well as you need it.
Let us know. And yeh feedback on the direct line attachment would be appreciated.
