How is the kite recovered?

For the recovery, it’s the same principle: you place the kite at the zenith, you loosen the 4 steering lines then you tighten the 5th one. At this moment, the kite flies in bird mode. We bring the kite closer with the 5th line and rewind the others. At the finish line, the pressure is released in the leading edge either directly or via a remote valve and the kite is stored in its compartment.
