Ok here is what I was thinking. I'm not sure about the wraps but I think that a partial rotation in the groups ABCD would be sufficient to get back to the start point if required.

Felix, I numbered the sequences.
Could you tell me which ones were interpreted correctly and which ones were not?

Thanks, John

Sorry, where should I be looking?

Maybe something needs to be refreshed...

Sequence numbers for this maneuver only appear centered vertically and way on the left side. You might have to zoom out if your monitor is not around 16:9.

Hi John,

I had seen that and did not see any issues. Did you see my subsequent posts and images?

Sorry, I had understood that there was a problem with my animated interpretation of your sketch.

Okay, Now I will look hard at your latest sketches and see what I can do with them.

Be back later.

In real life we did the 'Ladder up Launch' to 'Grid Threads' and the 'Grid Square' to 'Grid Diamond' and then 'Diamond Threads'. All good stuff and plenty more as well.

At one moment it looked as though we might have attempted the 'Four Block' rotation but it was not to be.

Next time!

Today we flew six and re-visited the 'heartbeat' which we first flew at Knokke 2010. Two outward facing vertical lines morph to the ball and back to vertical lines again.

This has to be a core move.

Sorry, I have really been bogged down in school(now 5 days a week) and some work.
Within that work, I created the graphics for a couple new banners for Ben, which will be seen soon, somewhere.
Then there is a another graphic design project I am working on for them, which most of you may never see.

Seems to me I had created a horizontal version of your vertical heart beat. I will try to look into it this week.

Not doubting that for a moment. As I say, it should be a core move.

Finally back to "Super 16" again, at least for a little while. I am back to 4 days in class each week versus five.

Where should I continue?

I did look recently and was very impressed by what you had done. When we flew at Dunstable the fliers were very interested in the transition from the square to diamond as I recall. (Getting 16 fliers together is one thing, 100 a completely different notion.)

As you are doing the 'leg work' I think that you should decide what comes next...

Best wishes

I doubt transitioning from a square to a diamond is reasonably possible with 100 considering the given length of lines at 120 feet. The diamond itself is the problem being that the upper tip would most likely be well outside the wind window.
Thoughts?

You might be able to come up with a 3-D diamond formation. It would require the flyers having enough skill to be in close quarters, with some flyers having other kites in front, behind, above, below, and each side of their kites. It would be something like the regular 2-D formation with refueling for the third dimension. That sounds like a recipe for disaster and potential world record bird's nest.

To add to this, I think a square would be pushing or exceeding the limits of the wind window on 120 ft lines.
You would have 25 REVs, tip to tip on each side.
