Here's Chai feeding up the KAP unit. after a couple of trial and error, we figured out a strategy to get the unit up. attaching the unit too close to the kite causes difficult initial launching, since the wind at ground level is not usually as strong to lift the unit. launching the kite by itself for the initial 100' or so allows the kite to catch onto stronger winds above, hence, "locking" the kite up there. at this point, attaching the KAP unit to a newly tied knot will easily draw the entire unit up.
