ground recoveries?

20 May 2008 - 11:33 AM

us newbs, full of questions. I'm pretty competent in righting my dual line kites, except for a dead launch. I've found my rev at times fallen face down over my lines and am having to take the walk to set it back up. Is there a way to recover from this position, or is it the walk?

B series handle tuning

20 May 2008 - 10:42 AM

I'm flying the B standard, looking to get the vent later on. I understand the basic of handle tuning, closer to the handle on top more lift, father out more reverse and brake. I notice on the DVD John mentions a general setting of fourth knot from the end on the top and last knot out on the bottom. But from reading through the posts, it sounds like a preference for the top is third knot from the end and close to the handle knot for the bottom. So....two questions, what is the general preference for handle setup you all have on the B, and the second, I'm looking for a loose thumbnail guide for handle setup, depending on wind or other variables. I do know personal preference probably is the rule, but until I have that experience, a loose guide would be very beneficial to a beginner, thanks.
