Long mixer test on speed 3

Long test mixer setting at speed 3
Friends of the forum weight sorry for my writing, because I'm translating with Google translator and posting directly here from Brazil.
I found a safe and approved way to adjust the long mixer on speed 3 and I believe it is possible to do the same on other kites in the category, already tested and the results were very positive.
I will try to summarize what I did in a nutshell seems complicated but worth it.
First I downloaded the manufacturer's line plan from flysurfer's website.
With the measurements in hand using a calculator, I added the centerlines to the mixer, repeated the process on set A, B, C and Z.
With the measurements noted in a sketch I calculated the size difference between the sets of lines from Z.
Always having Z as base, this size difference between A, B, C is equivalent to an original factory measurement, the hardest part has been done at this time, now just adjust the kite used to match this same measurement with the same difference by adjusting the mixer and comparing the measurements.
I'm going to post a kinda long video where I demonstrate the method from start to finish, usually La in the mixer is visible that (A) is much shorter and (Z) much longer due to the kite halter lengthening or shortening

Nice video, but I have to say I could only follow it roughly using YouTube translate. Is there a chance you can make a better translation?

Did you account for span-wise differences in the line shrinkage?
