|can a standard quad foil hover?|
or is that reserved for things like the spider kites smithi with its unique cell structure?
IDK, I have a Radsails quad foil that can hover, fly backwards, and dive, stop and stall, very similar to a Rev. I thought that was similar to all kites with four lines...
Of course it can......any quad line kite can do the same as the others... Some just do things better.....
Quad foils will hover but they hover best headed outward from the center of the window and moved away from the center of the window. They really like air coming into the channels which does not happen well when hovering straight down wind. Remember, they are foils, not sails. They like to be inflated. Reversing is best done to the side of the center as well.
