Been flying the now Walla (Aerobe) a bunch lately and have one of each color.  Would like to train these to fly on a single line.  I have tried using the center joiner to join them but that didn't work.  Seemed to change the angle do much on the lower kite.   Any ideas on what would be the best method ?   Thanks.

i would use a branching line.....
long line that then splits into branches each for its own aerobe - oops i mean -WaLa (plural is WaLi?)

the spreaders are far forward enough that i feel the upper kite would just pull the nose up (as you learned it seems)

interesting idea!

Thanks thief. will try that this afternoon.  Light wind day.  I have done that in the past with some other SLKs.  Sometime worked sometimes didn't.   A wayward flyer would often hit the main line and go nose over but Wallas do seem to recover fairly nice.  I could maybe make a 3 point attachment with three lines like training stunters but was hopeing to keep it simple...
