1. When I use the outside attachment points on the bottom bridle, the kite flies fantastic! It flies precisely, it is very stable & the power is constant & the pull is strong to very strong in 15-20mph winds.
2. When using the inside attachment points on the bottom bridle it flies slower, it's a lot less responsive & when I fly it through the center of the wind window it shutters uncontrollably. Also the frame seems to bow significantly more when flying through the wind window.
Are these typical flying characteristics?

I've seen several posts on this subject lately. I think I may go back and try the inside points with the down bridle again just to see how it goes.

I use no down bridal at all.
I use the outer points when I want more power.
I use the inner points when the wind is stronger than I like as it does seems to slow the kite down a bit. I also found that to fly better, I pull in the power lines about an inch (I added a knot to the upper handle attachment point). This seems to smooth out the kite quite a bit.
