Relaunch technique for R1?

Postby downunder » Fri Nov 16, 2018 4:48 pm

Hey guys,

How on Earth to relaunch Ozone R1v1 after crashing? I can relaunch Sonic 9m in medium wind but yet to succeed with R1 11m in low to mid wind...It collapses, folds and that is the end. Happens to quick Im afraid.

If you have bow tied it its game over. If not a simple pull on the landing strap one steering line slightly more tensioned than the other and it should roll and flip back over.

The bigger question is why is it crashing in the first place? R1 is very stable unless the bridles are out of tune.
