    For the high wind days.

    Posted by Dale on 13th Nov 2015

    I fly in some gusty areas within a city but once you get it in some nice clean wind it really shines. It bounces around a bit and will keep diving if the nose points down. Solution: tail. Added a tube tail and it smoothed out the bouncing and weighs the back down so it points and flys more overhead. I wouldn't fly this kite without the tail. It does need a good wind so when the wind is too much for your stunt kite, pull out the Roto. This kite allows you to keep flying. I would recommend.

    Most of the wind blows straight through this kite. It needs a strong wind (your pant-legs must be flapping a bit) to get up in the air. A thin, light line is all that is required. Once up in steady air, it doesn’t seem to dip-and-dive like a lot of kites. If it has been grounded a distance from you, tighten the line to get it facing the wind and wait, wait, until a gust lifts the front end. Then give it a tug and it will take off! A thick and/or sagging line pulls the nose down and restricts the altitude. - After I added 10 ounces (300 gms) of weights to the rear spokes, near the hub, the kite gained altitude easier, and at a much faster rate. Try it.
