As for any
Waco, it is easy to mount; there is only the span to fit,
and the stretcher to adjust. It sits on the ground, ready
to take-off, and thus, it doesn't need an assistant. Its
behavior in the wind is very steady and foreseeable. It
doesn't do loopings, even in the worst circumstances, and
doesn't fall. When the wind lessen, there is a break point
where it drops, and it glides downward, keeping the line
taut, allowing to keep it in the air when rewinding the
line. It is an excellent flyer and carrier. As the Waco
3.0, the Waco 3.6 responds quickly when the kiter pulls
or releases the line.
for kaping is fairly good. It has enough sail area to provide
enough pull from 4 m/s. This was for me the reason to built
a kite larger than the Waco 3.0. It has the same wide
wind range and flies easily in unsteady winds, persistently
varying between 3 Beaufort and 4 Beaufort up to 5 Beaufort.
Of course, in a steady wind, it will be anchored in the
sky. The bow is natural when wind blows over 6 m/s and the
tensioner maintains it and add stability in lower wind speed.
Note also that the cells are designed to follow this bow.
Few kites have such advantage.
