PS: you'll remove flutter with simple triangle cut-offs between struts at TE (but play with correct lengths 1st) or place a simple batten there (maybe a better option for a start). I'd get rid of that Y front lines because you will get better behaviour from the kite if front lines are full length.

Thanks for the tip Gigi. I'll have to try that. Looks like you made several kite yourself. Your kites look very good! Nice video too. I like the progression of your kite designs, and looks like your construction has improved with each kite.

Yes , All the above is true ; also, just the width of a pencil line off on the
applying of your seam-stick & parts will translate into a wrinkle on the TE.

After Ya figure out your TE, (trailing edge) you can apply This stuff to it and
keep it the intended way you designed for many years , they also sell seconds
to keep the price down.
