badform to flowform 5

Replicating the hole pattern from the HQ flowform 2.0 and a small adjustment to the AoA and the Didak Flow Form 4 is stable..at last!

Flying the kite with an incomplete set of holes was the wrong thing to do:  the full set (albeit in a light wind) showed the kite to be stable and the tendency to ‘top’ was absent. I steepened the AoA very slightly too.

The holes don’t interrupt the profile of the wing:

..but they allow excess airflow to pass through it.
