In Topic: add reverse to speed up?

I fly my Flexifoil power kites with brake tension like my revs. Any 4 line kite will have more control with tension on all 4 lines

Much easier to back off an inch (MAYBE two) from my setup when I give them the handles and not say a word.

 

When you start, everything is just as 'difficult' and anything else since it's a new skill .... teach them correctly from the start.

 

The only time anyone has struggled with this is due to low wind (and slacking brake will further reduce pressure/control) and I generally have people flying unassisted within the hour.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who feels the current sleeves are functionally lacking and well below par.

Also be aware of what your chosen environment will do to your wind, or lack of wind. Some locations will look cool, but the wind will be messy, turbulent and switch directions on you every few seconds.

 

Learn the environment and it's conditions while you build the skills. Once you have the skills for that then any environment is game.
