I understand what you are saying. Only the word "what" had a question mark. The next sentence was a statement, thus the period at the end instead of a question mark. I didn't say you said something that you didn't say.SupaEZ wrote:I believe i wrote falls over and down on it's LE.....did not say kite falls backnoel wrote: What?

Placing a kite on it's wingtip too upwind means the wind will push on the outside of the canopy
....and the kite will go over...pushed down by the wind...and that is not what he did
As we recall the wind speed during his incident was @15 mph
He just had his kite balancing on wingtip way too downwind of the sweet spot....that's why it took off
OK all good then..........noel wrote: I understand what you are saying. Only the word "what" had a question mark.

I think you need to define "good" here, my fuels or actually any 4 line c kite will definitely pop into the air unless they are being actively flown. There is a characteristic of a lot bridled kites that handle well from an anchor but I wouldn't necessarily call it "good" or "bad" just a type of kite.Peter_Frank wrote:A good kite
