Re: New mystic warrior 2017

Re: Suicide Mode Well Powered?

I need to say something about the the leash being hooked up above the chicken loop. That is a bad idea since it side loads the hook which is not the way it is designed to hold a load. Plus I don't think any leash comes with a decent hook. I actually buy different hooks for my leash actual load rated...

Re: Kite turning itself

Could be the canopy. They can stretch over time and since most people only jump to one side it can lead to problems like this. Only thing you can really do is mess with your connections to get it to fly straight again.
