Sorry Jantie, I was just thinking out loud. The Beverly Hills Cop music in your video got me thinking about that banana in the tailpipe scene. I'm impressed with the kite line camera view, it really helps me to better understand what is going on with the crab.
Love that left-right switch at 2:52.

Thanks for the explanation..
Seen that movie but didn't connect it to that song.. hahaha

The 180 at 2:52 and continue driving can only in a downwind course. Next goal is to follow this not with an upwind turn. That's gonna be a challenge to keep momentum in a turn well over 200 degrees.
:D:D

Keep you posted

That 180 was impressive - went by so quick I missed it the first time around. Upwind would be pretty cool to see. I've done some with my short line NPW's and my Round Flex kite. The Flex kite has depowers well at Zenith so they are fairly easy.

BTW - how do you attach your camera to your kite?

Used steel wire to make a very light bracket and mounted the camera without the waterproof casing to keep the weight down and taped it on the kite.
