Extending the base of the vector power frame

I would like to extend the base of the vector power frame as shown in the diagram.
I am not sure if this will work out fine if I used it on the box kite.

Any suggestion or comments.
Thks.

Hi lanternfly,

it works. I did it with 3 GEN. I for my big Deltas (19 foot, 12 foot).

Have fun!

Thank you for your kind reply.
Will try to extend the frame and fixed on my Alpine DC kite.
Hopefully, it will reach for the sky.

BTW, have you ever tried fixing the motor in reverse trust, such that
the propeller is facing the rear of the kite.
I wonder if this reverse trust can actually work!
Some crazy idea just came to my mind.

Cheers!

Reverse vector thrust works (I call it 'pusher'), but a 'pulling' vector thrust unit works -on kites- better. Extremely results delivers a 'double' vector unit, containing both:

My very first vector kite in 2008 was an experimental Delta Box with a reverse 'pushing' vector thrust:

Hi flattermann,
You are my idol.

All kind of vector kite tricks you have already tried, enormous experience you have accumulated.

Thanks for sharing!
