These style of kites have no internal diagonal (fabric) bracing. So bunch up when not moving forward with enough speed to inflate them firmly. They usually don't have air transfer holes between the ribs.
Also the B and C bridle lines (2nd and 3rd line from front) are situated too far forward and offer no support beyond the half way cord mark of the wing.
It's a shame as with the same amount of effort during manufacture this bridal placement could be corrected very easily.
Not sure what the easy answer is??
I too bought a cheapie when I first started power kiting and I'm sorry to say I cut it up and made it into windsocks.
