The Rebel 9m 2007 (first gen) does this. It is a moderately heavy bar pressure and not much lowend, but very high high end.

If you just pull the bar with constant force, the bar will move up and down and eat the gusts, you won't feel it at all.

If the wind drops, on the other hand, the kite will too. It stalls easily.

It makes sense to me that loading up for pop would be affected, but in strong winds with a kicker to launch off with speed, the jump shouldn't be affected much other than you might not get as much extra height or float from a gust.


This seems like my perception. Cant exactly remember if the elevator effect happens on that kite..ill pay attention.
