Some help needed by a beginner... please.
As described in another topic, I made my choice and acquired an EXP which was a Ready To Fly package with sail, lines and handles.
At the moment, this kite is a headache.
For the first flight, we had the bad surprise to find that the bridle wasn't mounted... Great. It was supposed to be RTF.
But Youtube gave us the bridle setup manual.
Second flight, to find out that the lines were all full of knots - 20 minutes to remove them. Great.
First thing I'd like to check, because there is no coherent manual or videos about that ... the "color code".
The manual which comes with the EXP says: white to top, black to bottom.
All Barresi videos have 2 red and 2 blacks lines, and black goes to bottom, red to top.
We have 4 colors.... : white, black, white/red, black/red.
Which of the following is the right combination:
- white/red and black/red on one side
- white and black on the other side
- white/red and white on one side
- black/red and black on the other side
Now second point I'd like to check:
Today I had a third flight, unfortunately almost no wind, but I could notice that the kite was moving to the right all the time.
I unmounted all the lines and measured them, and I can see that all lines have a different length (smallest difference if less than 1/2 cm and biggest is around 2-3 cm).
In different web pages, they say that the 4 lines have the same length. Great.
Since there are still 2 lines 2-3 cm longer, should these 2 longest lines be connected to the bottoms?
Can some please advise as we're getting nowhere at the moment Thanks in advance!
