I know I am a wimp and only stacked 3 Rev 2's together.

I am also sure you know exactly what you are up to Ant.

However found I needed a bit more brake on the bottom stacking lines for the rear kite. Sorted the wobble out mostly.

Still had a bit of instability I think due to the fact that the 3 kites had different hours on them.

This is only advice I am passing on from others more experienced folks.

2 seemed to fly fine, it was only when I added the 3rd on things got twitchy.

Ant, pull your leading edge lines in about 2 inches (top lines) this will help reduce the amount of pull the stack gives you as well as better control. For some odd reason, stacks have a ton more brake in them than flying one kite.

Also tweak the lower lines as Baloo has said. The end kite usually needs to have the lower lines pulled in about 3/4 to 1 inch. This will greatly help with the chasing of the stack.

What a great idea. I never thought about stacking blasts or speed series.
