G'day all.

I've been flying my Indoor a lot lately and have found that I can consistently get it to stall mid apex of an up and over. Instead of the downward pull to complete the second part, I push up with both hands, sometimes put a little brake on pre-push to help. This takes all the drive and motion out of the kite and stalls it completely. While stalled it stays flat like a pancake and will just float pretty much at the end of the lines until given a command. From this stalled point I can rotate it without more than a foot loss of altitude. The changes of direction in the stalls I have been able to get quite fluid.

I was just wondering is this is a trick, and what it is called?

Thanks
Rob

That's pretty cool. It sounds like you begin your rotation while you're beginning the stall or are you able to stall and then rotate?

Stall first, with the kite flat it just floats. As soon as you rotate your thumb/s the kite rotates and slowly falls. A little drive when facing the direction you want and off it goes. I like to stall it then let it float down the way it feels like. Beautiful to watch, then recover and do it again.

I fly mine on 20 foot lines, mostly over tar on the still nights.

See if you can "walk forward while flying in reverse"

Still learning to control reverse flight with the Indoor. I can do it, just need to use "steady hands" more.

You mean with it up there? I'll have a go wind permitting.
