Update. Tested today and noticed some weird bulges on the profile. Turns out, some of the interior lamelles are torn or not sewn properly, so that explains a thing or two. I'll hand it back tomorrow and see where it goes from there. Tough luck, I've already waited nearly two months to get it. I regret not waiting with selling my Soul now. Thanks for the tips!!!

Edit: Yes a fixing a blown cell can make all the difference in the world.

As far as I can see there is no trim possibility for the speed system or mixer, as on R1 or FS kites.
There are 3 knots on the C-pulley line that connect Z-main.

Moving the z-main attachment toward the kite has the same effect as shortening c-main at the mixer as a Flysurfer. Ozone may call this a twintip or hydrofoil setting but that has less meaning. The knot closest to the kite is more stable. The knot farthest is more dynamic.

I wouldn’t change these settings now but would have a few rides on it first.

My experience is the Ozone foil kites are more sensitive to inflation than flysurfer and you will have it figured out in one or two flights. Definitely beware allowing the kite to rise too fast to the zenith after relaunch because you could get a collapse worse than you had. Once it’s pressurized you will be good to go.
