Down to a 5, sounds fun! You dont have problem making the kite insanely fast? :D

Re: Switch Lineup

Actully thats the way I did land my H3 a couple of times last session when every one was on the water. Worked very well, dont know if you are doing it slow or fast. I do not recommend landing the kite this way, always get someone to help, but if its not possible I usully get the kite down to touch w...
