ok, maybe i am not getting this but it is a QR system that you need to learn tricks to make work properly?
really? sounds over-engineered and over=complicated to me.
the kites may be good but if the safety system is not easily safe, wtf?
there are lots of other systems out there that work well without the drama...
The problem with reassembly of the Q/R only relates to 2012 bars.
The flipping onto its back thing is to do with the shape of the kite and only applies to some models and maybe sizes within that model.
Kites with a flatter/straighter leading edge would be more prone to not drop on their backs. Kites with a curved more Delta shaped LE should flag onto their backs well.
My Crossbows always drop on their backs.
I agree that if you make IDS kites, they should all flag out automatically - not just the vast majority of them.
