Foils are most stable at 12 directly overhead. There they are balanced and least likely to fold with slack lines.F-Bear wrote:I tried to hold it at around 40degrees to my left
If you have 3-6 inches of oversheet or backstall on the bar setup, you can use that to help prevent overflying. Sheeting in either way will help prevent overflying.F-Bear wrote: But the kite kept shooting way forward and then folding itself up

Yes and sheeting in and maybe change Z.F-Bear wrote: Flying it at 12 o'clock appears to be what foils like from reading posts on this site; is that the solution?
Gusty is always very difficult with a foil. That said a skilled foil flyer seems to be able to out do tubes, as I have seen, but certainly not easy.F-Bear wrote:Keep in mind the winds are GUSTY and scary
It may or it may not be an option, ultimately it's your safety and you need to decide.F-Bear wrote: and I prefer to not get lofted into the street or powerlines so flying it at 12 o'clock at this spot is not preferred
Experienced foil kiters usually have over sheet on the bar or trim.F-Bear wrote: I have my bar set like a normal LEI bar would be...Trim fully powered and bar pulled to chicken loop the lines are even at the kite. Is that right for this kite?
Couldn't find a vid.F-Bear wrote: One last question...trying to figure out how to attach to the ELC (easy line connectors)...I am doing it wrong but have not found a picture or post yet that explains how it is done. How is this supposed to be done?
Line might have twists. Untwist by tying to something and running both hands with friction down entire lines many times. You can also run the line over and around something like a harness hook. You are basically making the line maintain it's orientation over the hook or through hands which forces twists out. Otherwise if you can hang the lines in no wind ... that will work.F-Bear wrote: They tangle SUPER easy. It is ridiculous...some sort of auto-tangle technology.
Never disconnect anything or pull tight. 30seconds I bet I would surprise you. Tangles are the crux of foils.F-Bear wrote: The bridles where totally tangled (holy freaking COWS what a mess !
