In Topic: Inverted hover?

Hi cashmere,

 

Hope this pic helps,

 

The orange leader i currenly use with the orginal handles.

The original leader (black) can also be used for achieving this length when larksheaded at an "extend" leader (white) between the handle and the original leader.

And It also prevent wear at the handle end, just replace the exender leaders...

This one i got from this forum,, stroke survivior mentioned this if i remind it well wink.png

 

What matter the setting i am using the knot, just in between of a roaring kite when flying fast forward and falling down when hovered LE up.

I.o.w. the kite should be silent as possible when FF flying but still hover LE up without walking backwards.

It depends on the wind to set this knot but ussually it;s the third or second knot from the end of the top leader.

On my other handles this is exactly 8.5 inch from the handle end and flies as a dream.

Keep in mind that this is my setting a.t.m. and may not work for you wink.png

 

 

fair winds.

Did you read the just for fun tutor?

Applying a lot of brake will help a lot.

When you fly with the original leaders, the top leaders are imho too short.

Youll have to extend them and it takes a bit to get used to this but you will notice the difference.

And.. Find pilots in your area and fly with them. It helped me a lot. Succes!

Hi Cashmerecasey, 

 

Well i am new to this as well, so what can i say to you...Welcome to this great addiction!! Patience is the key here imho. One day you think you got it all sorted out and the next day you think you will never learn.....

Experienced pilots told me that could be a part of the learning curve, Keep practicing is my advice.

 

As a newbie i all ready can tell that a set of race rods is allways a good choice :)

 

Fair winds!!
