Anyone have problem with doing them. I have, kite seems to loop and stall on way back up. Am I chokeing it? or is it the kite?

hooked or unhooked?

Either way, sheet it a little more at the cleat.

I assume unhooked. I had this as well the first time i did a f 16 with the 07 9m ONE. It is indeed that you are choking it a bit to much. Before you unhook you should pull the depower rope a few cm (in the cleat) which prevents the kite to be to much powered during the upstroke. You ‘ll also note that the loop is even more explosive since it makes a faster turn. (watch out not to loop it twice by accident)

Unhooked! its not F-16 otherwise. I did have it a bit depowered and am flying on end knot on back lines. Will try bit more depower next time.
Thanks
