Hi,

Need some help with anybody out there who have a KiteHouse Drop since there is virtually no information on this kite on the web and I know zilch German.

From their promo video, I see that there are 2 holes for the standoffs per wide. The drop I acquired recently doesn't have 2 holes, only 1 standoff hole at the trailing edge. I'm wondering if this is a recent design change.

Also, there is an adjustable tensioning line that runs horizontally behind the kite near the trailing edge. You can tighten or loosen it to change the shape of the keel. Anybody have any idea what it affects and how?

Some bridle measurements and measurement of APA connector from tip of the nose along the ULE and LLE would be nice as well. I need to make sure that my Drop is setup according to factory specs.

Any recommended weight? I tried 10gr briefly and I quite like it, though it seems to mess up a few things. Any good mods too?

Thanks
Darryl
