I'm after a bit of tuning help.
I've built a few open source kites over the last year and they all fly very well.
Apart from one - an Escape.
I've measured and re-measured the frame and bridle and there is nothing out, but it flies wrong.
I can get it to fade, axle, etc, the modern tricks are all there to my ability level, which is pretty low.
But it's the standard turn, just the basic turning that's not working.
The kite seems to be reticent to turn, it's sort of a lazy wide loop.
Normally in a turn you feel a little bit of drive from the outside half of the sail, it's almost powered through.
My Escape just kinda flops round, the outside line is really slack and it feels like the kite is hanging on the inside half of the sail rather than being pushed through by the outside.
I'm off to fly this weekend and I'll mess about with the bridle but I really wanted a few pointers to help me out.
I've built a 90-3, a Lazarus, and Escape and a 90-Nothing.
