After having flown the A-Quad off the jetty, the wind died down to almost nothing. And inspired by the bridleless flying of the Diamond Ghost the other day, I thought it was a good idea to try and fly the Choris Aéra without the bridle too!
So after having totally drowned the A-Quad, the wind had died down to almost nothing, the time was right to give it a shot.
I removed the bridle and attached the flying lines directly to the kite itself and after some tweaking I got the angle of attack just about right.
And the kite did behave reasonably well! Up and Overs and 360’es were well within reach. Inverted side slides were there too. However there was some wind left and it was kind of on and off making consistent windless flying difficult.
So I’ll have to wait for absolutely no-wind conditions before making any conclusions about the kite’s flying.
But I managed to shoot some video befor it got too dark … and no pilots were injured while filming for this video.
