Tempest quad, the perfect bridle..

  Finally came up with a bridle that the kite will track straight with that
doesn't also reduce it's sliding ability..

  With this bridle the kite is still agile, but no longer twitchy, and it
doesn't come at the expense of side slides (in fact, the kite can now slide
sideways almost as fast as it can fly forwards.  This is basicly what I
wanted, but now that I've got it's sort of strange, because sideways is just
as valid a direction in normal flight as forward. It's just as easy to slide
up sideways as to turn the kite and fly up forwards for example.
