I have a pretty much new Jive 2 from flea bay. I open it up to fly and had to set up the wing tip end nock not sure if it is right. It was extremely tight to get the end Knot into the nock. Either way I got it togeather and then also seen the prusik knot loose moving up and down the outhaul. I have gotten it to fly but would like to know what are the measurements that it would be set up from the factory.

1 Welcome to the Forum.

2 You are here because purchases from "the bay" have little or no support.

3 Is one side set so that you can move the loose side to match?

4 Typically, if you hold the kite by both tow points, the nose should

     be higher than the keel by about an inch or so. This can be your
   
     starting point.

5 When you have no wind, try launching (one pull) the kite with different settings

     and see which setting launches the kite the highest.

6 I don't own a Jive 2 so can't help you with factory settings.

7 Try contacting HQ directly.

8 Here is a photo showing the bridle as set by the factory. You might want to download

     the full size photo to get a better look at it. (Clickable link photo)

I don't know if the Jive and Jive 2 (2012?) have the same bridle.

But maybe if the other dimensions compare, then the bridle

would be the same. Thanks Kent.  Smiley

Standard bridle settings for the Jive 2 are-

Uphaul - 46cm

Inhaul - 48.5cm

Outhaul - 50cm

Turbo - 3cm

Make sure when you fit the lower spreaders so that the plugged 'solid' end of the spreader goes into the centre T - if you put it in the wrong way round there is a good chance it will break if you have a heavy landing.

Thank you guys for the replies. I will work on it this weekend. I have bought a kite(wolf ng) from Kent at "A winds of change" store will he still was in Vegas. so you could say I am a long time lurker and never post because i am a total newbie.
I also did attend the Morro bay kite festival this year. So you cannot say this is why I am here and asked a simple question. I enjoy kites and trying to get them to do tricks.
kite accumulate so far.

When you think you have the correct setting, mark it with a permanent marker pen. Then if you try 1/4" changes up or down you can always go back to "default" setting you marked.

I attended the Morro Bay Kite Festival also. It is my "home field" even though it is 120 miles from where I live.

And still cannot complete an simple axel but will keep at it.
Where do you live? If you are close enough to Morro, maybe I can help you with this simple axel.

I'll be staying in Morro Bay August 18th to August 25th. I usually fly every morning. I'm usually the only stunt kite in the air. I can teach you a lot more than an Axel. The best way to learn is from another flyer. I am more than willing to help you if you make it over.
