The HQ Facett has six spinners, three rotate clockwise, three counterclockwise.


The directions for the assembly of Wolfgang Grimsel’s Trisatorn call for one of the three spinners to rotate in the opposite direction of the other two.

If a disturbance of flight in these kites is the result of all spinning same-wise, it might add yet another interesting movement to a whole kite. Swaying, rocking, stalling... Look what I can do!  Tongue  (Presuming of course a disturbance isn't so severe as to guarantee crashing. Embarrassed)
