Thanks to the help here, I'm heading up to Michigan for Saturday at the Grand Haven Kite Festival. My wife, brother-in-law and sister-in-law are going with me. Can't wait, I've gotten my new Nexus out 3 times and really finding it a "fantastic" flyer. I even managed to take her to the outside of the window, pointed her up walked in and set her down softly. My wife was pretty impressed, lol, she thought that was really cool. I told her wait till you see the pros on Sat. Thanks for all the help here, I'm enjoying my journey.

Hi dprod, I've been on the road since Friday - just getting caught up now.

Looks like you got a lot of good info already, we have some passionate and knowledgeable members on this forum. :)

Alas, we have only one dual line tutorial (assembly) on www.learnkites.com at the moment, but have plans to add many more as time and conditions allow.

You might also try a simple search on YouTube for "kite tutorials", there is a lot of good stuff out there, although not much with picture in picture like ours (hands + kite action).
