    • I had a really great time flying my AC SUL yesterday.   The wind conditions were all over the place really ripping one minute and gone the next with direction changes.   When I bought my AC SUL, Lam suggested that I also buy a pair of stiffer lower spreaders for higher wind flying.   I put them in and was able to handle everything nature threw at it.
    • @riffclown i do hope you spend more time flying than building. however i have watched with interest (ok i'll admit it sometimes real anticipation) the builds turn out, and i'm never disappointed.
    • It really does help to have an experienced flier beside you! It can be very overwhelming at first. The learning curve for quad flying is initially very very steep, there is a lot of trial and error but with help from someone you can get through it much faster. The first time I grabbed the controls of a revolution kite, I could not control the thing, it would go up, start spinning and crash down. I ended up tangling the lines very very bad. My 2nd instructor was Jynx, she showed me how to attach the lines and launch the kite and keep it in the air. Thanks to her, I had a bit of control of the kite and I could fly left and right but not very good, it was very fun. What followed after that was lots of crashes, broken spars. My third instructor I would say was Jay and Kelly .. Jay taught me the importance of the trim on the top and bottom lines, to also fly the kite with purpose instead of crazy and to make small adjustments and slower smoother flight. I also learned the catch and throw from him as well, a fancy trick. He also taught me how to better turn the kite. The rest I have learned on my own by watching.  You will initially be intimidated when you see the precise control other fliers have, trust me, you will get at their level at some point. Today thanks to all the help I've head, I can call myself an experience flier. I have absolute control of my kite and flying is so much more fun and rewarding.
    •   My Widow NG went back to premier on their request due to defects. I still want one, but won't buy one until I can inspect it in person first. It looks like I might be getting one of my old Prism E3 kites back.  I guess that the Widowmaker Pro is off my list for now, and I will be considering the Lam Hoac AC in the future instead. John at Skyburner said he didn't know what the future of the Widowmaker Pro will be as Steve Tapp is not doing well. Guess they are filling the last orders and not taking any more the last time I checked. There is an announcement on his facebook about it. https://www.facebook.com/TappestryKites/  
    • I will define what level I want to achieve for myself, and what the experience is like.
