I know that there have been numerous discussions on rok tuning, but they seem to focus on angle of attack, kites taking of or no, etc., so I hsitated to post this, but I think my problem is slightly different than other situations explaned.
I have a different problem: I tune my kite, it takes of and flies well, but when the wind picks up or becomes gusty, it tends to keel over and fly to the right, sometimes hangs fully horizontally, or starts to dive down. I avoid catastrophes by letting out line or even running towards the kite, but I get tired after a while ;-)
How should I troubleshoot this? I use the 2 secondary bridles-1 primary bridle system, as described in the wonderfull pdf of Larry Green (http://essexkites.studio1.net/Images/rok_bridle_info/Rok Bridle Guide.pdf
), so the bridles are about 1 3/4 the height of my 2 meters tall rok. Larry writes to solve yaw by moving the connections of primary to secondary, but does not tell me how. Should I just experiment. Does this all sound familiar to any of you?
all the best,
