12th April Blackheath

Posted by Felix Mottram, 12 April 2009 · 55 views

Grey day with 3-4 mph maximum to start. A few drops of rain initially, gradually brightening with the mist lifting.

Flew with ATM and Jade alternating leading left and right. I called from the centre some of the time. It can work to a degree. ATM finally realised that I had maintained the three kites with crossed lines for a considerable length of time while the fliers moved in line and in parallel. Getting used to line contact can only be done for real.

Also tried to hang the kites (1.5B Race Rods) facing left or right with maximum arm stretch. It is not possible to 'grip' the handles in this situation. It has to be 'finger tips', especially for the transitions.
