i have a 17m co2 in miami.
ive had 2 problems with the recon features:
today i was a bit overpowered (20-24kts)
dropped the kite. when trying to relaunch with the recon systm i got
tossed/dragged/thrown around quite a bit untill i realized it the lines on
one side were somehow shorter.
by then i had lost sight of my board in the waves and i had to body drag out
of the water.
during this time i had a very hard time controlling the kite and almost lost
on land i checked the recon system and found one side had jammed, the recon
bullet was out of place and had tied up.
i was lucky i was out in deep water when this happened, far from land and
as for self-launching from sand, i once left the kite for about 10 min
flapping in the wind. when launching, the same thing happened and the kite
did the "death spin". though that time i blamed myself for not walking the
lines, i just did a visual check right before launching.
the whole experience makes me think the relaunch part of recon is probably a
bit too complex. (the depower feature ive had no problems)
(1) i will avoid using the recon to water relaunch
(2) always always check the recon system on the side of the kite (bullet,
etc) make sure it's not tangled by the wind right before launching.
