Help Required to Fly RC Vector Kite

Hello everyone,
i read this forum from almost 2 months and i develop one rc vector kite, but unfortunately kite can't flying.
please find attached photo for
- kite dimensions and weight
- vector stand dimensions and weight

when i put kite on ground and start a2212-motor kite forward very easily with very fast speed also it can left and right very well.

whole setup as below:
kite made using fiber glass rods (6mm) and nylon cloth(same as used to make umbrella)
motor used is A2212-1000KV, 30AMP ESC, LIPO 2S 850MAH, 9G Servo.
kite fabric and rod weight is 252 Gram and Vector Stand weight is 326Gram, So Total Weight with full load is 578 Gram.

also i make vector unit using fiberglass rod and acrylic sheet(10mm).
also vector unit performs very well, while start motor at full speed there is almost zero vibration in vector stand.

please find attached photos for details.

i try to fly it for almost 5-6 times but there is no success.

can anyone suggest me where am i wrong?

- is there problem in selection of motor?
- is there problem in making of kite?
- is there problem of wind speed?

also i doubt on cg which i get at 33cm from top.

if anymore input require then please tell me.

You're way nose heavy (to much forward weight) and the angle of the wing needs to be increased to 90 degrees. Adjust the weight of the undercarrage so it balances under the center of gravity (CG). See images below.

I think your propeller is too big. Causing a lot of torque.
