I think you've been flying one of those Chinese knock-off Cosmics and that's why you could Flic-Flac. No other possible explanation. [-( We all know that real CTCs don't Flic-Flac.

Oh yeah,

What helps to do flic/flac or fade on the Cosmic is briddle adjustment:

Set the briddle attachment on the Lower Leading Edge on the 2nd. knot.
(the 1st knot is the knot shortly by the leading edge, not the knot at the end of the short briddle attachment line).
This wil help to do the flic-flac and fade easyier.

At the Upper Leading Edge you can do adjustment at own wil.
This wil effect the pressure in the kite at low and high winds.
I fly the Cosmic mostly on the 4th. knot at the ULE.

It´s not nessesary to remove weight, i fly the kite with 21 grams tail weight.

In the beginning i make the (same mistake) to fly without tail weight.
I thought that the kite flown better, easyier to fade.
Until a time that i fly and i did a fade and so ever, i noticed that i fly with the weight set in it.
With the weight set you can explore the full capacity of te Cosmic, this is better, gives more fun and you learn more.

The Cosmic TC is specialy designd for the Tricksparty Competition.
I´ved seen the Kitehouse boy´s Christian Stahll and Sasha Treder on the Bootcamp and Tricksparty´s flying with the Cosmic and the do it awsome, the are unbeatable.

Just try and fly.

Yep Graig,

Correct:
The Cosmic has standard by delivery a 14 grams weight

But i have a weight of 14 grams and a 7 grams in it.
(The 7 grams weight is a split of a original 14 grams weight, its cut treu.)
The 21 grams weight is recomended in a discusion on the German drachenforum.

In the users manual they suggest a weight between 10 to 40 grams.

You can play with the tail weight and find out.
