I dont understand this as I wrote (and it is really important in terms of this topic about "selflaunching", and what can go wrong).SupaEZ wrote:I like that expressionPeter_Frank wrote:

We have one similar here in USA........i smell a rat
Check this out:
You get to your bar at the anchor and put the CL in your harness hook...
....while kite sits pretty on wingtip
Next without touching the bar and keeping the trim line fully depowered like it was....
..... i walk upwind 10..20..30 degrees...keeping front line tension by stepping also back very little
Guess what happens as the inside of kite fills in with wind....it lifts off the ground....
...without any bar input

Because of that set-up the bag releases just right when the moment arrives to launch
Kite is on it's back with trailing edge totally parallel to the wind flow
Similar to the way you would launch a foil / ram air in the wind window....parallel to wind flow
I just position myself at a 45 degrees angle upwind of trailing edge and launch away
The LE near wingtip just slides right off from under the 10 lbs weight of the sandbag as kite rises
