Canopy curve is a term for how much C-shape kite has. I'm sure Regis meant curvature of airfoil (camber) like he also wrote.Regis-de-giens wrote: Now A and C : these settings will change canopy curve (cambre)
Canopy means the wing itself. Parachutes, paragliders and foil kites all have a canopy which is made of fabric cells and vertical ribs (which have the shape of airfoil).Regis-de-giens wrote: canopy beeing a general term in my mind to mention foil shape overall.

On the explanations here, if I move C to C1 or C2 I will get a flatter shape of the kite and by Regis more suitable for light wind, so the complete opposite what I understand from the hp from Lecca Lecca.
Can you bring some light in (my) the darkness??
Best is to get back to original adjustments. 1m pulley line can shrink 10% and this alone will ruin kite performance because it will pull too much B-C (to lowered camber).
