Wow on the B-series low wind performance!
Posted 31 October 2010 - 06:42 AM
The winds were around 5-7 mph at ground when I started, with the kite loaded with 3 wraps. It flew fine, but I had to pay attention and learn some low winds skills on a rev. Main thing was to keep the kite moving, and doing slow turns where you rather use the arms carefully to turn the kite (like dual liners), instead of the wrist. I don't know if this is wright , but it worked for me. Also hovers were impossible to keep, the wind was simply to low for that kind of fun.
Then the wind dropped a bit, and I changed to a 2 wrap leading edge. Flag on top of harbour club house was hanging straight down, and the anemometer on the same roof was not turning, but I could feel a slight breeze at the back of my neck. I tried to launch and Voila!, the kite flew fine; I hard to work a bit and pay attention again, but man it flew in next to nothing, and I am just a beginner
I MUST get a full vent now, so this delicate piece of kite is not mistreated in medium-high winds
