Bill - thank you for the additional information. I have the same kites. Did you feel the vented como flew well? What size line are you using? I have heard it should be 150#. Regarding your pig tails - I was think about using 150# line in sleeves. What size line did you use? Also did you leave the bridles on all the kites?
The combination flies quite well but I need to do more tuning, getting rid of the wobble is not easy, there are conflicting remarks
as to how much brake is required on the rear kite lower lines. Some say start at none ,others say 1/4 inch and yet I have read
that 1 inch is OK for starter, does anyone have a definitive answer ? please
I am using Shanti Spectra 150lb @ 100ft, actually two dual line sets matched for length, these are dedicated for stack use, well that was the idea but now I sometimes use these lines flying one kite solo, the extra weight and drag give a little practice simulating low wind conditions!
For pigtails and stack lines I used 150lb bridle, I had a lot hanging around so I just used it ! A bit heavy but who cares !
The pigtails all stay on and the bridles on the rear kites stay on as well but are stowed, as in picture four, using spare pigtails!
I forgot to mention that I use forward and rear facing pigtails on the middle kite.
Somewhere there is a post, that I cannot find, that relates to preventing the end caps from coming off !
