8557[ksurf] Re: Quadrifoil kite impression needed
- Jan 2, 2000I have not done so myself but I have seen people tie the brake lines to
the main lines at the kite. The brakes should be loose (not pulling on
the trailing edge.) The kites seem to work just fine in the 2 line
I fly with a four line bar, so often times I just use the bar to steer
the kite (2 line mode) They fly just fine. They don't turn as fast
and you have a little more power when not applying the brakes.
The disadvantage in flying 2 lines only, in my opinion, is take off,
landings and re-launching the kite from the water. Take off and
landings are very scary if not done from the edge of the window.
Re-launching the kite after a crash, the kite in my experience, always
crashes leading edge first. You need the brake lines to back it up.
