I was practicing self landing with some other guys at the launch site and we could not get the bandit to self land. Other guys tried too and It kept re-launching or trying to roll. We tried crashing it around 5 to 10 from the ground and then pulling hard on the front lines to no avail. Any ideas??????

Is it an f-one bar? If so, put the kite at the edge of the window on the side you want to land. Walk up the center lines to the swivel. Pull the top powerline and the kite will fall leading edge down into the wind.

Do I hook the chicken loop into a carabineer right before I walk up the lines and do like a reverse self launch?

depower the kite on the trim strap. then grab the center line (the thick one below the swivel and above the trim strap). you can then unhook if you want to. Then walk up to the swivel and pull on the top power line until the kite falls onto the leading edge.

or

you can depower your kite on the trim strap. park the kite at the edge of the window with the tip on the beach. unhook your chickenloop and clip into a carabiner. your kite will sit on the tip and bounce around a bit. walk up the bottom steering line until you get to the kite then flip it over.

Always an assisted landing is better if available.

I use method 1 but both work fine
