I laughed way too much about this :thumb:

On topic, you can read the manual: https://corekites-302e.kxcdn.com/_Resou ... _en-de.pdf

Call your dealer and ask them or write an email to core, or even better write them on social media.

made my day :-)

To the OP, standard (factory) configuration seems to work fine for jumping.
For bigger sizes you may want to try Faster turning option (I dont' remember if they call it "wave")
For big air, you want to pick the biggest size for conditions, so you may want to use the last knot on the steering line pigtails to make steering lines a bit longer and extend high end.

Anton from advakite.com uses this: fastest turning speed on wingtips and super-light bar pressure on the front line bridles. Factory defaults seem a bit slow to me

According to his woo account, Anton's main trick is going to South Africa and not non-standard bridle setup. :-)
He uses 9 for boosting and it's plenty fast, with standard settings, imho.. but it's a matter of preference.

He is running his learning to fly camp in cape town as far as I know. The settings are the ones he is using currently on the XR5. But yes, kite size is something to consider. As far as I know, he is using a 9m GTS and 10m XR.
