Key Elements

IN is called when all kites are lined up on a horizontal line at ^50. At >70 kites make a sharp 90° turn, the 'odd numbered' kites (1, 3, 5 ) downwards, the other upwards. At ^10 and ^90 respectively they turn again 90° towards centre window. All kites fly a diamond simultaneously, the 'even numbered' kites exactly above the odd ones; the closest points about 7% apart, the diamonds equally spaced around centre window. All kites fly, after ending the diamond, on the horizontal lines at ^10 and ^90. OUT is called when number one reaches <80.

NB With a 3 kite team number one and two fly the diamond left of centre window; with a five kite team number 3 flies at centre window, as drawn.
