Hello Everyone,

I and my son are learning to fly more than one stunts at a time. The stunts we have are for strong winds, with heavy pull making it difficult to fly kite with each hand and do tricks.

Can any one suggest good light wind, highly responsive and strong dual line kite that we can use for team flying too. thanks in advance

I can see from the photos you posted that you have full-sized kites. The smaller kites will pull less in strong wind, and those which are called "ultralight" can be flown in lighter wind. I won't suggest any specific kite to you, there are others here who are more knowledgeable about dual line flying. I'm sure someone will suggest exact models for you.

My both of above stunts in the picture make a good fast right circle , but a slow left circles any tips to make both circles of same speed.?

Check to be sure that both lines are of equal length, and that all bridle leg lengths are equal to their mirror image on the other side, left and right. Check sail tension on both sides and adjust so both sides are equal. Suspend the kite at the center and if one side hangs lower than the other, add weight to equalize. Check the flex of the rods, replace if necessary. All components on one side should match the other as exactly as possible.

Fly the kite after each adjustment is made to see if it made a difference.

Thanks, your suggestion was quite a help. I and my son started making a new small stunt kite in shape of a fish to start practicing multi-flying post-7860-0-85652500-1401859063_thumb.jp

From my own multiple kite flying experience, with many trials and errors, I too had difficulty in finding the "right kite" with as little pull as possible and still offer good precision with slow to moderate speed. Most full size kites will have considerable pull and might not be the best option to hone your skills on. That been said, it also depends on your wind conditions. In low winds under 8mph, a full size ultra light will have manageable pull and not be too overpowering. Ideally you would want a SUL or UL for those very low ind days and and standard kite for winds from 8mp up to 15 mph. When it gets to 15mph and above, the pull becomes tremendous on a full size kite therefore a vented kite would be a better option in this wind range.

My advice would be to get a pair or 3 decent reputable beginner kites (something like the Beetle) although on the smaller side, it is VERY durable and will definitely speed up your learning curve as they are faster than full size kites, so it will keep you on your toes and bring you endless hours of enjoyment.

Once you can master them and feel comfortable with the pull they generate, you will be better adapted to try your hand at a larger stronger pulling kite.

Some multiple kite flyers can fly stacks of 20 kites from each hand with tremendous pull. It CAN be done!

Good Luck and safe flying.

      Well folks... Thought I should post somewhere other than introduction area.. Someone suggested I should buy a beetle just to see if I might enjoy 2 line kites. It came in the mail and I quickly opened the box as soon as I got home from work. I assembled and disassembled the kite a couple times measured the bridle to make sure everything was factory trued. Saturday I stretched the twisted wrap lines that came with the kite and cut them to equal length.
      Sunday I went out and put the thing in the air! Winds were off and on but still surprised myself that I kept it up as much as I did... Never managed a upright landing on the edge of the window. Almost could do a slide... Lines felt pretty spongy.... Not as fast as I expected but still fun!
      Put a couple single lines up for the wife for a while and just had a pretty good time in general...
      Two lines are fun but I plan on dedicating myself to the rev kites when I get them... Already working 10 hour days and it looks like the engineering department wants more and more so might be going to 12 hour days 😖 👎 Not cool at all... Day job is sucking the life out of me...
      Till then I'll keep watching JB videos and reading all the tips and tricks from you fine folks here on Kitelife.
      One of these days I will snap some picks of the kites were flying. Wife picks some pretty colorful stuff!
      Thanks as always to you folks who have taken the time to post experiences, help and suggestions helping the archive to grow. Seen some new member introductions..... Pretty cool stuff here...
      Good evening...

      Hello from Spain!
      After years enjoying visiting this forum I would like to present myself.
      I live in Spain and I fly dual and quad line kites, also the Urban ninja single line.
      I´m always trying to learn to improve my skills and Kitelife helps me a lot.
      Thank you very much for your work!!!
      Recently I have bought a wonderful Kymera kite from kiteparts.net.
      I have only fly the kite once and I like it a lot .... but I´m not sure about the tension of the sail.
      I would like to know if is it normal or not that the sail is so loose after the assembly.
      Here I show some little videos of my kite where you can see the sail after the assembly of the kite following the John Barresi tutorial.
