    • Digging it... End of the day, the Kaiju has a solid “micro carbon” frame, overload it and you’ll first get distortion, then collapse and potentially breakage - I ride the edge with the line tension I apply and am keenly aware of the shape of the kite while I ride it that hard, no comparison to even 4-5 mph of “real wind” . In that outdoor test video with the gust to 9 mph, I had to both choose flight paths and positions that have the kite the best chance of spilling air plus relieving pressure through arms and footwork. You’re welcome to try it, but you’re well outside the kite’s safety zone with warning given. Start with the barn and see how it behaves under varying degrees of pressure - the thing about a flexible indoor kite like this is that turning ability usually reduces as you increase pressure, so one consistent trait with competent indoor dual line fliers is consistently giving slack or reducing tension anytime the nose is passing between 3 and 9 o’clock, this lets the nose rotate, otherwise it’ll try and take a wide turn. All speaking generally of course, different kites have different strengths. I created the Kaiju with the intent of making indoor / front yard flying a little less intimidating because it’s really not hard once you learn a few basic moves and conventions for flight - no kite flies itself, but this will line up well with the coming tutorials. Got me going! To the point, thank you - try everything (wisely), even the crazy stuff, I did, can’t buy experience.     Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app      
    • Sitting here the last 7 days in 0 to 6 winds. I need a light wind kite without a doubt!! Passed on the 4d and into the wind kites.Reviewers have said more often than not that those kites are twitchy. Kinda get what that means but no experience to know. Everyone who has gone to a niknak or inak were glad they did. Then I watch RobB and others fly the 4d !! Really how long before I'd learn enough to know the difference. Reason returns save save  and lessen the regrets regrets. Watched the videos a few times and the 10 mph gust makes me believe kaiju would handle gusts up to 8 all the time. Plus I could twirl around in my barn. Plus It's good looking .Plus the name is one of the coolest. Plus I know who to complain too. Plus when I'm whining about the kite behaving people here will remind me it's not the kite stupid!! Jan thru march we will have very few calm days so the wait won't be to bad. I'll take the purple one with the pink polka dots .
    • One more day! I'll do the drawing after I get home tomorrow. Not sure when that will be. Might be kind of late. 
    • Thanks can't wait to see one.
    • Similar size to the Sky Burner iNak but a bit easier to load up, Level One Amazing is a different class, much larger kite.
