I have been kiting for a year now and am experiencing an issue w/ my 2012 12m Rise. It has a natural tendency to turn to the right and I dont know how to correct the issue. I am unsure if it has always been like this or if it has just started doing this recently. When I load and pop going left, the kite always wants to fly up to the 12 unless i put heavy pressure on the left side of the bar. When load/popping to the right, the kite always wants to dive down to the water. I experience similar issues when sending the kite. When travelling going left, i have to give constant left bar pressure to keep the kite in place (it wants to go up to the right) but when travelling to the right, I have to give left bar pressure as well to keep it in place. The kite is still flyable but it makes the session extremely frustrating.
What have i done to try and fix this?
-I measure out the lines and made sure they were all the same length.
-I flew the kite w/ the steering lines reversed. The kite still flies to the right. This tells me it is definitely not the lines.
-I inspected the bridle to ensure there were no knots. I also compared the length of the left and right bridle lines to ensure uniformity.
-I opened up the LE zipper and strut velcros to try and move the bladders around without having to remove them.
-Visually inspected the kite for tears. There were none.
I tried all of this and still no fix. What else should i try? Thanks all!
