I built this indoor/no-wind kite a couple of years ago, but I’ve never quite come to grips with it. I’ve done several tweaks and modifications to it, and yes, the flying characteristics have improved, but it’s not quite what I want.

So the other day I came up with an idea inspired by another bridle I’ve seen in recent photos on the Internet. It’s a really simple one and today I got out all the stuff required to do the tweak.

The Choris Aéra is fitted with a straightforward standard QLK bridle, but the one I was trying to implement is a MUCH more basic one. Just a V-shaped bridle attached to the leading edge, 14 cm off on both sides of each down-spar. At the tip of the down-spars, there is just a 20’ish cm single bridle line with knots every centimetre or so. The upper and the lower bridle halves are not connected, and neither are the left or the right bridle halves, so… yes, it’s pretty scaled-down!

The kite is now ready to fly – I hope! At least it’s ready for a test! So stay close for updates on this test fly coming soon!

…and while waiting, why not take a look at the photos down below taking you through the tweaking process!
