How To Restring A Quad String Parafoil Kite
PLEASE HELP ME! I have tried to string my 4-stringed parafoil kite many many times but my kite still goes crazy in the sky. Do you know how to restring my 4 stringed parafoil kite?
It seems to me that you might be better off posting your query in a kite forum, since it might take a few messages back and forth to really sort out your situation.
However, I do wonder what kind of lines you are using, since the amount of stretch can make a big difference to how the kite handles. Nylon and Dacron (Polyester) have plenty of stretch compared to Dyneema or Spectra lines for example. The less stretch the better, for a power kite like your parafoil.
Getting the line lengths exactly the same on left and right sides is important too, but I'm sure you already know that.
Try www.kiteforum.com, otherwise just Google 'kite forum' and see what comes up :-)
Another thought - just walk in to a kite shop that sells power kites and get someone to have a look at the flying lines and bridle lines on your kite. They may be able to spot something straight away.
Hope you manage to tame that kite soon!
