Especially when answering questions more precise than I could, as you did, you are very welcome to do so.

And just in one point I was wrong: Now after minimum 70 droptests (this time also often complet out of control, guy under water, lines slack):
Relaunchability has gone down from 100 % to just 98,5 %
But the one and only time it went wrong, was the chance to try rigging it in the deep water, which I wanted to learn anyway and it worked in the 1,5th try
Which means, even if you can't relaunch it dirctly, it will always possible to wind up, correct the canopy into relaunchable position and start again, exactly as I do it with my sonics, where the quote might be similar.
Video will follow.

"So where is the video of these 98 percent releaunches . Strange you have presented only photos and words so far. I tested the 8m in about 8 knts and had a zero relaunch rate with about 6 or 7 dips. May be the wind was too low considering 8 kts is not enough to kitesurf but I can tell u for sure water gets in to the leading edge pocket especially the tips and makes the kite heavy and difficult to come off the water. well ill wait for your footage may be the smaller sizes its possible in stronger winds."
