I kind of disconnected my brain and tried again. Well, the kite took off of the ground, but not for long. I did some more experimenting but after a while, I thought I would go for another approach. Reducing the angle a little.

How it went…? Well, better, if I might say so, even though it’s definitely room for improvement. You can judge it yourself from watching the video below!
