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.
stability 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.
