No deposed and it backstalled. Anyone have thoughts? I assume that I could take about 20-30 cm out of the front lines

All Switch kites are conservatively tuned to just barely back a meter or so when fully sheeted with trim 100% released in steady light to moderate wind on a calibrated bar = all lines equal when trim is 100% released and bar 100% sheeted to CL. Some users prefer to shorten or lengthen the rear lines to suit their individual tastes or bar set-up. Before testing a Switch kite on any bar, one must first determine that the calibration is correct. Otherwise the flight test is a useless waste of time. For safety, when we test new protos and samples we always hold the kite drawing wind on the side of the window with some trim pulled and insure that the kite is not oversheeted or pulling asymmetrically and the rear lines go slack when the bar is sheeted out, etc.Laughingman wrote:(bill Hansen can help you with that).
