Flysurfer Psycho 4 Turns Right

Postby Flyfish » Tue Feb 11, 2020 2:13 am

I recently got this kite from a buddy and had to do a couple of sewing repairs. The mixer was way off and I reset it all back to level. But it pulls right in flight. Other than streatch the bridals which I have not done yet, I'm wondering if anyone has thoughts on why it would pull right?

Checked bar and lines already I guess..
Check kite for internal damage and then compare all the bridal lines for equal lengths (left and right), you have to be with 2 persons to do this.

Your most likely problems in order are front lines, A mains, AB depower limit. Checking the the front lines correctly requires a pulley balance. Your AB limit is usually thrown out by the C pulley lines being different, but AZ mains will do it too.

Let me know if you need more help, I have fixed these problems on about every kite I have owned. I don't think I have ever seen an even set of front lines which I haven't corrected. Making them right the first time is obviously too much for these brands.
