Correction

Thu May 14, 2009 8:05 pm

The Inverse execution is incorrect.
Now
Fly horizontal to the ground then pop upper wing and give slack to lower wing. This will throw the kite into a deep Turtle.

Should be :
Fly horizontal to the ground then pop lower wing and give slack to upper wing. This will throw the kite into a deep Turtle.

I am not sure if I am able to may the change myself.

Ermmm, Inverse is Top wing, same wing rotation, Rolling Susan is Bottom wing, same wing rotation...

Mmmm. Both Randy G's and AudioRob's tutorials start with a lower wing pull to enter into the turtle.

I have to admit, I've been practicing it initiating it with the top hand.

Ah well, each unto their own I guess.

Next time I get chance I will try both methods as I tend to sharply pop top wing and give immediate slack so the kite almost bounces off the top wing into the turtle, but Randy G and Audiorob both pop bottom wing first. If both ways work I will right it up as an alternative method.

But you are referring to the rotational input, rather than the set up into a turtle. The entry from horizontal flight into the 'snap turtle' is what was written incorrectly.

I'd love to see someone pop the top wing, while slacking the bottom, and get into a turtle. Now, maybe you can pop the top and give slack to the top, and it will fall in...but not if you give slack to the bottom wing first. Then you'll get a flare, like in a half axel.

Obi, I'm glad you clarified that, I was getting my head in a knot trying to work out how you could pop the top to get into a turtle.

To clarify then - 'Pull a bit' the top wing and release everything - don't 'Pop' anything. What happens then, is the wing you're going to rotate on is slightly nearer to you...

"inputs"?, "clarity"?, "understanding" ? ! ? ... On a good day it's telekinetic. On a bad day there isn't enough grey matter on the planet to control the obstinate piece of malware attached by its parasitic tendrils to my wrist.
I admire and appreciate you guys verbalising what would otherwise remain a black art to many of us.
