I had heard bad things about the self adjusting concept.  But tried it anyway. It worked fine.

The problem I have is always trying few more.  Up to 24 on my Flight masters.

I will shoot  a couple pics and post.  It will cost you about a $1.33.  You can setup with  both fixed and variable.

You will enjoy the Dynas.   Start flying and then check the cameras shooting video and stills.

I haven't had a great deal of fun with these so far.
On my own in a field I had them flying a little (but realised I had them set for high wind when I was in low wind).

Then on a beach in about 15-20mph, with a helper I simply couldn't get them off the ground without a tangle, the time I did fly, the last two were tangled.
Then they either rolled all over the beach when I was setting them up or with one leading edge down I couldn't get them off the ground.

Not as fun as a delta to get up and going for sure. Happy to continue to try as it must be possible, currently feeling frustrated.

Any tips on launching solo? (I've seen the videos online, wondering if I ought to set them up at the edge of the window rather than direct centre?).

Thanks,
Jon

There is a reason why there are usually helpers when someone flies a stack of these at a festival type experience....
I remember needing good ground wind and then some patience...my stack was 13 tall and i could get it up in about 10.....but then when it goes up that is amazing!  I had the "uglee" stack....all different sails and different colored tails and tail lengths...it was my stand that no matter what a stack looked awesome!

my favorite thing was to get them to fan outwards like a deck of cards...it would take a quick turn and the back kites would come forwards and then slide off sideways.....really fun

My thinking also, they are a nightmare to launch :S

I went back to my Nexus stack, although it's a lot shorter/less pretty, it was up first time!

you did see this video? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tru6AtSn1dc
I usually staked my lines and put the kites in a nose up position leaning back

Yup, although with the phantom frame they didn't seem to want to stay leaning backwards :S

I have seen the windjammers fly them a bunch in cleveland. I think having a ground crew helps. a ground stake is a huge plus as well. Layout the lines and lean them back against the tension. That does work of course until they decide to roll over.  Cry I can fly my stacks; adrenalines and microns by myself with them pretty easily but you do need enough wind. I have also found shorter lines help with less wind
