    • Sorry you feel that way but I also very much understand WHY you feel that way. For the OBSKC, I every much preferred the other site or Wright Memorial..
    • @Paul LaMasters thank you kindly for sharing yes agreed, it's not great for the LE by sliding that way, that only happened to be the start of the clip the wife got for me haha, I am fine launching up down and inverted launch too, and turning upright from inverted at launch. @makatakam thank you too, super appreciated pointers! Like seriously, every tiny bit any of you share or comment or critique is absolutely priceless. How else would anyone learn anything then? I was flying with top leaders knots all out but one knot in. Barresi leaders. I'll add another video shortly from the day of flying before we headed out to the beach, it'll be more boring to watch since it's just slower more controlled flying drills. I actually got scared the spars would pop in that wind, 3wrap. I am seriously in love with the pull of the 1.5b in that wind though, it's enough to drag me along the sand but not enough to actually take me off the ground and into the abyss unlike real power kites would when dead on in the wind window. Post again soon :D:D
    • Back after a few flights. Pretty windy around here so i tried my best to stay on the edge of the wind window (i wonder if ripstop can stretch in high wind? Lol. Noob question)

      Anyhow i got pretty good at landing/recovering/relaunching (dodd gross vids helped). Didn't have many lawn darts and those who happened weren't high speed/impact so no damage so far (knock on wood) i even tried a few turtles

      Things are going great so far. Next session i'll try to spend more time practicing stalls and landing on both wingtips

    • It shouldn't be exposed anywhere except near the tips. Sounds like a routing issue.
    • The wind was a bit too much for the kite you were flying. When you have that much wind, let the top lines out two or three knots. It will slow everything down and improve control. You gain zero muscle memory if you are fighting against the wind for control of the kite. Watch the clockwork, bicycle spin, and hover tutorials. Practice holding all eight hover positions -- upright, left, right, inverted and the four diagonals -- steady in one spot, and moving from one to the next nearest in both (so you don't become "handed") directions. Make the transitions as slow as possible. This will give you muscle memory in each position. Don't obsess over learning the bicycle spin. It will just "click" eventually like the inverted hover did. Let it develop without pushing it too hard. You need that muscle memory and slow, deliberate transitions from each position to the next before you can combine them into fluid motion. You must have control during the transitions, and the best way to get it is to spend a lot of time going very slowly. I know how much fun it is to zip around and just have fun, but it's ten times as much fun to zip around with total control. You should hit that next plateau somewhere between 40 and 60 hours of flight time. Relax and let it happen. I look forward to your next video. Remember, your primary objective is to have fun, smile, and don't forget to breathe.
