    • I agree with advice given, especially looking to find time with other pilots as often as reasonable. Hey you could always ask a friend to help you by holding a cell phone for a Waze video call from Mexico if you need help. There is always a work around if needed and an experienced pilot could look at what you are doing and give pointers that help you step forward faster in your skills.

      That said what I would add is this- if you don't Ave a lot of real estate to work with then I suggest markibg in the sand your limits. A "if I cross this line I will hit the _____", or "If people walking towards me pass the bag I left at the kite end of my lines I will know they are in my danger zone. It can be hard to judge distance with the kites, and other people are oblivious and or rightfully don't have any idea what our kites can do, so they can get into the flight area easily and keeping them safe is your job. For months I landed whenever anyone was in my danger zone.

      Also, semetry is important, check your kite setup and your hand position. Focus hard at the start on equal and symmetrical hand placement and movements. We naturally tend to favor or over power one side and knowing and correcting for that is key. Start with focusing on launches that go straight up to the top of the window and come straight back down. If your launch always arches in one direction you are not being symmetrical and even. Getting good at this is ALL ABOUT building good and consistent muscle memory, which is all about consistentancy and repetition. Check your hand position frequently and keep your hands relaxed in front of your center of gravity. No wind in the arm pits man.

      Lastly, keep breathing. Don't hold your breath, that loads tension into your body that you don't need. And imagine clearly what you want the kite to do- "Use the force Luke!". Thinking about what I want it to do and not about the mechanics of my movements helps to keep me from overthinking.

      If you ever need help I am just a Waze video call away.

    • Thanks All...  I suspect the hole in the sail will be necessary.  However, I'm worried about fraying.  I'm now thinking of sewing a link from the keel, up and through the back of the kite.
    • The opportunity to fly the stack of flexi's dried up after I returned to the US.  Northern Jefferson State (often mistaken for Southern Oregon) didn't have many suitable places for flying that monster.  After that, I relocated to Portland Oregon, and when the weather was good, I worked at PSM...  When the weather was bad, I didn't.  Also large places for flying powerful kites were hard to reach w/o a car (which I did, and still don't have).

      My one major foray into kites after the 1990's was flying the US flag from my DFM kite on 911.   I flirted around with my Hawaiian Team Kites in Maui and on the Big Island, but when you're on a Fam trip (familiarization trip) for the travel agency you work at, you don't get many opportunities to have free time (23 hotels, 2-3 Islands, 2 days, 3 nights, back to work on Monday)

      I doubt that you'd want to nick my sled...  It's a 2x Upscale of a trashbag sled design done in ripstop.
    • Take note, with just the two entries so far, even a “newbie” video can take 3rd place at this point!
