Hello guys,
I know you have been waiting for the new EPIC CHICKEN LOOP to come out. We have been working on this CL for 18 months already making sure everything works perfectly the way I want it and we finally got something that I am very happy to introduce to the public very soon. This is just a video showing different people testing how easy the new EPIC Chicken Loops works. The final 4G CHICKEN LOOP & XTEND BAR video will be out soon and we should have these ready to the public very soon once we get them from the factory. Now it all depends on how fast the factory can produce them.

This is one of the many ways of landing your kite by yourself if no one is around to help you.
You can also use this idea to launch your kite if you are by yourself.

That is dangerous amigo! I wanted to write a comment already when you posted that one: http://www.kiteforum.tv/index.php?option=com_videos&task=show&code=How_to_LAUNCH__amp__LAND_a_kite_in_a_remote&Itemid=

When you do that, always walk with the center line in one of your hands to secure the kite.
One of the owners here did the same as you, the kite launched itself when a gust hit the kite and the lines destroyed our Internet antennas and ended up on the other side on the verandahs.

You might want to amend your videos quickly or take them off until it's done.

Cheers

Once again Mr.Caesar this is one of the many ways of landing your kite. If you don't feel comfortable with that way, then use your own way. But of course the best and safest way to land or launch a kite is to have some one else help you.

Not sure how that would be classed as dangerous?
Obviously if there are others around then an "assisted landing" would be better but if your on your own and it's strong winds then this is a another option.

We have a guy with us on a trip here now who always uses a bag filled with sand and a carabina attached, he's one of the most safety conscious people I know and often prefers to launch/land this way rather than use someone he's never met before.
We also have a beach near us in the UK where pretty much everyone uses a post that's on the beach.

It is worth noting that caution should always be paramount and maybe also to depower the kite first. This is after all just an other option for when there is no one else to assist and the beach empty of people.

Mate, that landing Dimitri described is perfectly fine and safe as long as you walk with a centerline in your hands towards the kite and not 5 meters away from it. Got it? :wink:

I guess the only reason he is walking few feet away from it is that he is filming at the same time and want to show the whole set up together!
In real situation you would also walk fast to your bar to avoid anything happening and reduce the time between letting go the kite and grabbing the bar, but again, in the purpose of the video Mr D is taking his time to make sure that you can see all the steps of the maneuver.
As said before, this is only one way of launching, there are plenty of them, and the best one is still with the help of someone that knows what he is doing!!
