Hey Tony,

I usually don't mess with those attachment points, although in extremes I might. I was talking about the pigtail knots on your trailing edge wingtips. C kites and to a lesser degree, flat kites can be particularly sensitive to trimming by attaching to different knots.

I wrote an article some years back about doing this with C kites. The general concepts still hold, at least with Waroos. Note, on most flat kites there is no longer much adjustment, if any, on the leading edge pigtails.
