You know, when your QLK is sitting there in a backflip, is it possible to do backflip rotations?

I was out flying my A-Quad Semivented in pretty decent wind a couple of days ago and amongst other things I was doing quite a bit of backflips. You know, trying to keep them lasting for some seconds, tending them and then recovery.

Then I got this idea….. Is it possible to squeeze out a rotation or two while the kite sits in that backflipped position?

So I got going but my success rate was’t exactly sky rocketing! 😉 I was trying to get the kite to rotate in many different ways, but that was really difficult.

Then i took another approach. Why not try to do the rotations like I would do the Insane using a dual lined kite?! Not popping the lines like for a Multilazy but rather keep one set of lines tight and giving slack to the other while slowly moving backwards.

Now something happened. I managed to do a couple of rotations on two occasions and even got one of them on video!

This one doesn’t look so pretty, I know, but at least it is a start and definitely something to explore a little deeper,

So….

Stay tuned! To be continued!
