If you have a spi pole there is nothing to stop you using that to increase the angle that you can fly the thing.

As for gybing I STRONGLY recomend dousing the monster with the sock, gybing then trimming the sheets and relaunching. Getting the monster wrapped around your forestay or furler is no fun. Ask me how I know this.
