I did the safety mod with the extra knot (was a bit different from the pictures though) and decided to check my line length at the same time.
I think I read that with the bar pulled and the trim line fully out, the four lines should be the same length. Is this true? Because when I pulled on the lines, the power lines ended up half a meter above ground and the steering lines were touching the ground. So they are a LOT longer.
Is this right?
And to be sure: how do you tie the lines to a pole so you can check the line lengths? Do the pigtails and the last knots on the other lines have to be lined up at the pole? Is that the startout position?
One thing I know: if the steering lines should be the same length as the power lines, it explaines why some are complaining about bar pressure and I don’t feel a thing. I think my kite needs some tweaking… It flies brilliantly though on long steering lines!
Hope to hear from you!
