flew again today for a couple of hours in really good winds trying to make it all look smoother especially side slides, but could really do with some more advice especially with flying up side down it all seems abnormal and line management, seems to take an age to sort out lines so not twisted if someone can point me in the direction would really be great.
i can't believe how much fun I'm having, to have so much control is amazing.
Well, I'm jealous that you are so quickly doing side slides! Took me much more than a month.
Upside down advice, from Bazzer, in a clinic: park your kite upside down on the ground. You must relax, music helps a lot. Pop the kite gently into the air, and land. Keep this up - RELAX - and try to increase the length of time in the air. Increase the height from very low, to TOP OF THE WIND window. Slide the kite side to side while upside down (pull right to slide left - like squeezing a watermelon pip on one side to make it pop the other direction). Well, the idea here is to develop "muscle memory", since flying upside down cannot be done intellectually.
BTW, rising inverted from ground to the top of the wind window will take quite a bit of practice. For me months, for you probably several days.
But the strangest part of flying upside down - once you get the hang of it, it's easier to hover and slide upside down than right-side up.
