I find that relaunching my EO 6 when it decides "it loves the ground as much as it loves the air" is a matter of giving it slack and letting it flop around until it figures out which way is up. Then it just seems to take off.
I have havd very little trouble with the EO 6. Wind range is good and I can launch from holding the kite in my hand. Larry is correct that giving the EO 6 slack and it will correct its self.
But not the EO 8. I was able to fly the thing today. A person stood on a small hild down wind from me. I let out ablut 80 feet of line. The wind was at abount 6 MPH. As the kite was released, I let out line slowly keeping as small amount of tension on the line. The kite sat in the air very nicely at the end of the line.
As I was pulling the kite in, at around 40 to 50 feet of line; the kite fliped and flattened out just before it hit the ground.
When the kite was at the end of the line, I do not play with the tension at all.
My EO 8 flys, put with a lot of conditions that does not make the kite enjoyable.
