OK so if indeed red=A then you can get the first two settings with a bit of dyneema with one single knot. Otherwise there are way too many knots to get tangled. The loop is around 11cm. Lower one is equal to pic 1, the upper one is like pic 2. EDIT: looking again I see that my lower pic is like the setting I actually had on my kite, and the upper setting is like picture 1. So you probably need one knot to get the equivalent of pic 2. Anyway you get the point if you want to reduce the number of knots floating around waiting to get tangled.merl wrote: ↑Mon Oct 28, 2019 6:35 pmscreenshot.png
I found this pic on one of the French forums and saved it. But what are the purposes of the different settings? CA use yellow for the A line on one side, and Red for the B, and the opposite on the other side. In this picture, is it the case that red = A...?
Jake, as you have peak4 experience, can you please make direct compare between these two? Many thanks.
Comparing 3m Wave and 3m Peak
This works as long as you do it right. Next time, do NOT just park a tethered Wave. It's not a LEI. Keep your hand on the back line at all times, and walk towards the kite. If the kite tries to relaunch, pull the back line a bit, thus steering it back down. (If it wants to crash into the ground, push.) In case things go bad, pull the back line HARD. That's your flag line now - wear gloves.jakemoore wrote: ↑Sat Feb 22, 2020 5:30 amRelaunch is not an issue with the Wave. I tried parking it on its ear like an LEI tethered to my car. It automatically relaunched and flew over the zenith to the other side. Then it flew back to the first side, and then when it took off toward zenith again I hit the safety.
