    • that "kite legs twist" is over control  on the breaks that mins you are to many knots in on the top lines.i hope you mount the kite correctly and don't put the spars on front of the sail,that will make the kite to launch extremely hard try to start at the third knot up and second on the bottom but before to of that check your lines length, even brand new lines some time are not equals. on winds more then 6 MPH the kite should self lunching  just taking some breaks out.   find a more experienced flyer to help you with first flights and setups till you will have enough experience by your self. that word "monkey see monkey do" work good on kiting on the beginning.  
    • I also started out with QLKs rather recently. I never bothered with leaders. Initially I found it easier to fly (before finding out about LE flexing and sail loading) medium setting on the top lines (in the middle on the knot range - no leaders). The most frequent way to accidentally flap the vertical spars is IMO to pull too much on the brake lines (can flying close to the edge of the wind wind window trigger this as well?) - Small inputs and slowly especially when going backwards! Wait a while with the leaders until you learn basic QLK control and can keep it in the air for some minutes at least. OK back to the drive issue. Try what happens when pulling both handles. The LE should now deform and the kite should speed up, stop pulling and the LE flexes back and more or less stops (if this doesn't happen change frame or kite with another degree of venting). Control the pitch angle of the kite during the forward drive so the the trailing edge doesn't flap. You will be rewarded with a low wooooshing sound when going forwards. Now you can start to add length to the top line by choosing a knot further out. To get the kite going forward, deform the LE by pulling the handles towards you. Pulling on all four lines will (hopefully) give you the nice wooshing sound. Pulling mostly on the top lines will give you the (ugly?) flapping trailing edge. I'm currently at the last outmost knot of the handle without adding any leaders. This was what I believed until today's session. Then I found out that both rear bungee cords had been twisted catching roughly an equal amount of (rear) bridle. When undoing this I'm going to need leaders to achieve the same pitch (relative to the lines).
    • Got to fly my Series-B for the first time yesterday and could not seem to keep it in the air. The winds were blowing around 12 Mph, I have 82 ft lines and no snag handles with TK's leaders.   Started with the lines all the way out on both the upper and lower leaders and could not launch the kite. Moved them one knot at a time on the upper leaders until I was 5 knots in. Finally was able to launch, but when the kite got up to a certain height the kite legs would twist and the kite would fall out of the sky.   Very frustrating. Looking for advice from some experienced pilots. Do I need to continue to move in on the leader? Longer flying lines to start? Something wrong with the setup of my kite that I need to check?   Have reviewed all of the videos and have not seen a REV with so little Drive. Even in lower winds.     Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
    • Looks great, Ian. It's going to look a little different in only 11 days time!

    • St Annes beach this morning. Nice steady wind coming straight off the sea and the beach all to myself!
