    I would like such a depower system. It would aid me particularly as I normally have to self-launch and self-land my 21.5 BT as there is rarely any kiters out

      I would like such a depower system. It would aid me
      particularly as I normally have to self-launch and
      self-land my 21.5 BT as there is rarely any kiters out
      where I fly and I am pretty much a loner.

      Regards,
      Jake
