THANKS 4 ALL THE HELPFULL advice :ani_yahoo:
Sorry it's taken me so long to reply, I've been takin' it all in on lurk mode ;) digestin' it all.
Low winds last Friday: I spent more time fightN my lines on the set-up :ani_whistling: :ani_wallbash: dat's another thread. However ,I did manage some inverted hovers. 15" handles both SUL & Pro
Today winds were 10-15: I started with Full Vent B, spent a good hour on this one, 80% inverted hover trainin'. Then I switched to Standard, SLE with 3 wrap frame, whole different feel, much more of a challenge maintainin' inverted hover, another hour in driver seat with 80% of time toward goal @ hand. Started playN with inverted hover slide. 13 B-ser. handles today. :clap2:

Thanks Again

Can you describe your basic hand/arm position when you're trying to hover inverted?

Also, what kite and what general settings?


hand/arm position: hands close tagether (6 inch apart), about belly button high, elbows close to da side.

kite and what general settings: OH MY :wacko: :lol: Kite wise I was all over the place dat day, but here goes SLE (SUL)2 wraps, SLE Standard (3 wrap), B Series Full Vent (4 wraps). Those are the only ones I was tryin' ta do da inverted hover on. By set up I'm guessing you mean rods?

Thanks Much
Ab

However at the end of the Day, you fly on what makes you feel right. Do try all types of settings though, and dont just dismiss it as wrong. Give it a while to see if it makes a difference.


Will do thanks Baloo

Gettin' ready to do a double post here, hope I don't gauld anyone with this action, but I haven't figured out how ta do a multiquote.

Last time out, Midwest winds (all over the place 5 ta 12 mph)
15" handles, 4 knots in from the kite on top, 1st knot in from kite on the bottom.
Straight up hover is okish, well a lil shakey maybe but that's just a practice, practice....thing
INVERTED HOVER!! it's all over the place: Do I need to change handles, my knot setting or just keep working it ( practice, practice.... ) :blushing:
