Kite Tricks

540 Flat Spin

Group 2

Description

The 540 is a single 540° belly-down rotation initiated from a flare (belly down, nose away) that is entered from a vertical line of flight. The kite is flown straight down, flared, and rotated on its belly a full 540°, ending with the nose toward the pilot. The rotation should be as flat as possible, with no change in altitude. The trick is exited nose-up.
