Limbo triple stack tuning

The middle to last kite is erratic at best. Is there anything I can to sync them back up? It's as if there is a huge latency from input to reaction, but only in the last kite?? Any advice is welcome!

Ok, I bought a Rev...

It's scary, beautiful and I think a little bit vintage too! I've yet to successfully pilot it into doing anything but a lazy arc shape back to the ground. I took it out for its maiden flight on a day that there wasn't enough wind to do much damage, and seemingly not enough to fly in either!

Re: Anyone in there?

True that it is WAAAAAAYYYY too soon to just toss in the towel - just was hoping to see a bit more than that. 5-10mph is -_- and the sweet spot for most of what I have is right above 10, so seeing the predictions at a peak of 5 is disheartening some. Thank you for the offer! I soo can't wait to see ...

Re: Anyone in there?

Watching the forecasts diligently of late (about every 12 hours or so), and looks like the Dunes are basically going to have slight winds, if at all anything above 5mph winds. :-? ...hoping this goes up a tiny bit as it is the bottom of all of my kites useable wind range.
Ah well...

Re: Anyone in there?

The smallest one that I'd buy, knowing what I know now vs. when I bought my symphony tr, is a 2.2. Tried one before I got my 2.5 Symphony Speed, and for what it is, the Beach 2.2 is a pretty good foil. It's not a trainer power kite like my Rush Pro IV 350, but still fun.

Re: Anyone in there?

Well, I guess the wind hunting is a lot easier due to much lower speeds being required to fly, but I don't think I'll ever get over the way a powerkite pulls!

Ooh! Looking better and better for my being able to attend! Only going to be out for Sunday day for a few hours since the girls will have school on Monday, and I work all day Saturday. Praying for wind! *_*

Re: Sept 14 - somewhere . . . maybe Dekalb

I'm going to the park by the Boone County Fairgrounds in Belvidere... there were some fliers out today. I was jealous since I was at work all day.

Re: My first kite forum...

Thank you all for a warm welcome! I am getting more and more excited to attend the retreat! As is the willingness to convert me from the power side to the finesse one, as am I in the reverse for you all as well! There is no better joy for me than seeing the wonder and amazement in the eyes of a noob...

My first kite forum...

Hello to all my fellow airborne addicts!! I have been a long time waiting to get into what I was blown away buy when I was bug-eyed at my Grandfathers 12' delta kite so many years ago. Today I hail from the Rockford state-line area, with a passion for kites, fanned by the winds of every day off wit...
