Hello and greetings from Arkansas

I wanted to know if there were any known modifications for the Hq 2.0 through 7.0 flowform models

I have each model and noted today while flying the 2.0 that you had to keep your kite line tight to keep the kite
in the air.  The wind was steady etc.  It just seemed to not want to stay up , any thoughts or ideas

best

I think you just needed more wind.  I find that my 7.0 needs about 3 mph more wind than other similar kites (e.g, Sutton, Jordan).

My HQ 7.0 leaned to the right when I first got it.  To make it fly straight I shortened the outer left bridle by about an inch.  You can do this by simply tying a loop midway up the bridle.  Now when it leans one way or the other I always find sand inside the lower points.  Smiley
