The Mixer Test Explained

The Mixer Test is something many people are scared of and wary about. It is sometimes made to sound technical and like you may need a PhD to figure it out. Quite simply though, it is a very clever invention which will allow you to maintain your kites flying characteristics throughout its lifespan. As lines stretch (which they always do) you will need to compensate for this.

    Hi. Great videos. I am new to Flysurfer kites. Neither video explains how the kite should be set up to do the mixer test. Could you please explain further, how the kite should be sitting or lying on the ground? Flat with traling edge closer to you, or upright? I would think upright somehow, bit how? Pegs on the line? Inflated? Deflated?
    Thank you
