It inverts in the air yes, just drops out of the sky. I rarely keep it static at 12 and I'm always keeping it in motion in light winds. Also if it's not pumped rock solid it inverts often which is only my fault.
However, some of the inverts just happens without any explanation, it just drops out of the sky
Any tips how to fix an inverted kite if you are on your own?
So far I've always had a good friend who could help me
ok first of all what you think "inverted" is?
to most of us here, an inverted kite is when the kite is inside out, the lettering on the back is on the inside, the wind has pushed it all the way inside out and if it remains like this it is likely to get split in two. To fix this, pull the quick release and wait for the kite to turn inside right again. After it looks good, do a standard relaunch after quick release.
a "line inversion" is something else entirely. When lines invert that means the kite falls down out of the sky and thru it's own lines. This does not affect the ability of the kite to fly just go back to the launch when you get a chance. some people fix this on the water by taking off the leash and passing the bar thru the lines.
The cause of line inversion is gusty wind, no big deal.
Kite inversions usually happen when a kite gets caught in the surf flips around the wrong way and relaunches itself. It usually doesn't happen just because the wind is gusty and it falls down.
If your kite is flipping inside out all the time it sounds somewhat strange, it shouldn't do that but I don't fly the bolt.
