Need leaders for your quad?

Not at all. On 2 counts.

1 - this handle is attached to the simulator rig I use during the webinars, it's tuned to balance against a bungee rig.

2 - even if it was on a flight knot, it changes a lot for me because I have various sets of lines with various amounts of stretch (top lines).

I supposed at some point I should perfectly balance a set of lines and figure out what the "normal" knot range would be for me - been a while since I've done more than pursue balanced R/L bottom lines (by feel).

Simulator rig, bungee rig?!?!🤯
After a quick search for quad kite simulator, a piece of bungee, a swivel, and short line set, we were flying.IMG_6796.JPG
Thanks for the inspiration and information.

      I have a skytiger hi100 and I can't seem to get it to go to the top of the wind window.  It's been a number of years since I've flown, so any info would be helpful

      Hello,

      I 've been flying my B series revs the last the three months using the knots suggested in the video that came with the kite. I can manage all the slides and hovers. Recently, someone suggested that I should fly with a longer pigtails because that's is how Team Iquad fly. Being a newbie, I took the suggestion and made some longer pigtails and fly at the most outer knots at possible. The problem is I am not sure why I am doing so. Can someone explain the principal behind this? Thanks!

      Another in the ongoing series of Kitelife Magazine tutorials for using Revolution quad line kites, this one detailing how to equalize your lines, ensuring equal length between right and left.All types of line stretch or "settle in" over time and will eventually end up uneven by varying amounts which effects the accuracy of your inputs accordingly... You'll be amazed at how the kite responds more accurately, and how easy it actually is to balance out your line lengths.
