You're kind of right, but if you don't explain what sheeting in and out actually does in terms of AOA on the kite, and what happens beyond the sweet spot of trim, then you'll get a clueless kiter as a result. And you'll get someone who ends up oversheeting his kite when seeking more power, with detrimental results, and potentially dangerous situations. As much as you don't want a beginner with kite at 12 downwind of you, you don't want anyone upwind of you backstalling his kite onto you...
This seems to be the case, Absolutely. I mean sheeting in a bit and waiting a bit moves kite to the edge of the windowAndersP wrote: ↑Thu Sep 23, 2021 7:21 pmFaxie
(as with the 'depower>edge of the window btw...try it in a stationary position in stable wind and see for yourself)
If you let the kite fly at a negative angle it will no longer drive forwards and will fall back in the window until it get a positive angle again. With lei kites it's usually not a big problem but with fast race kites that overfly you it can be a disaster.
