    • Welcome to the obsession! Keep working on that inverted hover.  Someday it will just click. I had the same thought about how no one seems to realize what/who they're watching!  I would have been floored if I'd seen a master in action before I had quads of my own.  I'm floored even now. In my case, most passersby are completely uninterested in my flying.  Some are interested, but if I acknowledge them, they quickly pretend they weren't watching.  A very small number will actually shout something positive.  Then there was the one guy who shouted... "let it go higher, a**hole!".  And finally there was the only person who's ever asked to try my kite; he was COMPLETELY hammered and unable to stay on his feet when he tried to launch 🤣
    • Been lurking here a while and decided to pass along some of my experiences. 4 or 5 years ago we took the boat across the sound and went to the beach in Corolla, I saw a guy flying a weird looking kite that could back up and do weird stuff, watched for a while and was intrigued, the flier said come try it,, so I did ,, didn't go well , i had flown only duel stunt kites and nosed in his kite, I asked about buying one and he referenced his shop in Corolla. As it turns out I think it was Eliot Shook whom let me try his kite. I did not pursue quad flying until recently, covid and search for a new hobby played a big part. I purchased a full sail then a vented, from online venders and am currently thrashing them  around, (at one point today my anemometer said wind 2.8 gusting to 17 mph). The tutorial videos here have been a big help, and a member named Riff Clown who happens to live very close to my mom, has given me some good pointers and was generous enough to lend me one of his vented diamond kites, which I am practicing on also. He also let me fly some of his other custom builds which all looked great. I will own a Shook mesh at some point and probably a Riff custom also. Something that seems strange to me: when watching many videos of the master fliers (will not mention names, because I would leave out someone)  it seems as though most of the passerby people  are uninterested, I would be awe struck and taking videos like crazy, guess the old phrase different strokes for different folks makes more sense to me now. Over the last few weeks ( got first kite DEC. 26) I have learned the very basic flying skills, still having a hard time with inverted hover but I am persistent and think I will get better. Any way havin fun and as long as I am slightly improving will continue to enjoy it. Ej 
    • Thanks Tiwi. I’m using the DJI Spark for the aerial shots and a GoPro Sessions mounted on my chest for the ground shots, both in 1080p. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
    • Singer is a good machine for our purpose cause there is no need to have any special skills in sewing to get to know how it works. That's exactly what I was looking for buying it. 
    • Cool video! What camera did you use?
