I think I understand though, always looking for something better? That's how I am too. The allure of a very capable kite at that price is very tempting!

It keeps dropping out of the sky all the time when it's at 12 (and often inverts). This doesn't happen with my Elements 3 & 5.
Not very happy with this kite...
Any tips welcome
Very interesting my 16 Helium 3 is very stable, I surprised myself, never expected the kite to stay in the air not to mention keep up wind, in wind I would not think about kiting in. I had about 10 sessions on the 16 H3 and I never had a problem or even felt like the kite would Hindenburg.

I do not recall pushing the bar out causing it to drop but that's an interesting observation about angles.
I think setting the steering lines on the powered knot helps a little bit. Not sure about extending the centre lines.

Even when it was gusty 19-24kn, the 12m seems to come way too forward at the Zenith and hindenburgs. Even with the more stable bottom LE bridle setting.
It is literally the worst kite I've ever owned, I've lost so much confidence. Plus the amount of canopy flapping is mental. And Switch support refuse to believe my kite has an issue.
