I am 180lbs and come from non-depowerable foil kite landboarding/snowkiting. I just received my 2m OR Rise trainer kite and am enjoying flying a non-foil kite. I have flown a 5m C kite some on land and that’s it for SLE.
During my last session (land, wind S, 10-15 kts gust 20) I had to move the outside trailing edge lines to full extension (bar comes stock at one knot down) do to continued stalling when fully sheeted in. I was able to assisted launch with the bar sheeted 1/2 way out or more, any more power an kite would not lift. I continued to back stall kite in flight any time I tried to sheet in and power kite and had to sheet out multiple times in-order to keep kite flying. Got a good 100 meter down wind ride on the land board when wind picked up to approximate 20 kts and I was working the kite. Still a fun and safe session!
I am thinking that all this is probably pilot error and wind not steady or strong enough
I have the back lines full length, is there any way to trim the bar out so I am able to fly the kite fully powered and or so I am not flying with my arms almost fully extended in neutral flight?
Has anyone rigged a loop onto the quick relese ejection, in-order to use a harness? This would be nice to drop the web waist strap that comes with it. I have a OR session harness and some ideas, but I would like to hear from some of you first.
