    Desire UL

    Carl is correct, adjust the main line so that the nose leans forward. Slide the adjustment ink mark down about 1/2" below the tow point toward the center-T. By your pictures, it looks as though you have the newer versions of the Desire UL. (Explanation below). Carl may or may not know this, but last year New Tech Kites changed the factory location for some of there kites, and now the same factory that makes Flying Wings Kites, also makes some of the NTK Stunt kites, including making the Desire UL,. I have 4 of the new versions and they are different than the old versions. For example, there is more camber/curve in the leading edge, and the bridle line adjustment ink mark seems to be incorrectly marked too low on the main line., the center-T is different, and they are using a taiwan made carbon frame instead of Avia. When our Team TKO first tried to fly the new versions, last year while at an event in Bogota, Colombia, we experienced the same problems with too much overstear and they wouldn't fly in as light of wind as our older Desire UL's. The only thing you can do to make them fly better is adjust the bridle adjustment ink mark, so that it pulls the nose/top of the kite forward more, this will help eliminate some overstear and also help it fly better in lighter wind.

    One BBBIIIGGG kite

    The Tandem kite did indeed look like two stunt kites standing together. I'm still thinking it's a giant Tandem. Jerry Senote (spelling?) (One of Jerry's Kites) also mad e a giant 30 ft version of his Peregrine kite.

    More like Rod Guyette's Turbo Jet. The Ramjet was their original model, shaped like a TOTL Spinoff.
