    Another Newbie here....

    Lom, nice to hear you're having fun. Inverted practice..... start with the kite on the ground inverted.... reverse launch up to about 6-8 ft., hold steady, slowly land inverted, repeat....

    We met up after work. Yea, we work at the same place. He actually has a B 1.5 standard , not the B2. Winds started a bit light, then come up and steadier. He was up and flying in no time. Reverse landings too. Still smiling, probably. Welcome to the Rev family!

    Hello Lom, I would be glad to help you. I work in Sidney and leave at 4:30-4:45p. If you are south of Sidney, I could meet you tomorrow on my way home. Even if it's raining, I can show you some set-up tips. Do your handle lines (pig tails) have a few knots on them?

    Inverted Flying

    If winds are light, you may have to step back. In steady winds, a step forward will help with the reverse up the window.

    Inverted Flying

    Also try walking forward a couple steps to get the kite started in reverse up.

    Hello Kiteman, I fly also fly a 3-stack of B's.... full vent, mid, std.... sometimes a 2nd mid. I use pigtails which stay on when unstacked to fly as a single. All bridles stay on also. All stack lines are the same length (about 4.5') and I use one at the top center too. The center pigtails are a bit longer than the others and have extra knots to get the same spacing. All kites are framed with 3-wrap spars regardless of vented or not; gusty winds call for a 4-wrap in the front kite. My flying lines are about 85' with 150# and 200# sets. I'm planning to come down to TI for the January kite fest. If you go too you will see a bunch of stacks that weekend. This forum also has a separate Stacking info area.... check it out too.... happy stacking, Dayton David

Thank you, and see ya soon, Dayton David
  13. Brother Steve, thanks for linking to my diagram. I also meant to add that if the ring formations do some rotations then some of the spots I marked may need to invert just very slightly past vertical. 7 days and counting.... Dayton David
