    • I use the Microwinder from Horvarth. Lightweight, elongated, narrow and made of cardboard. With a pressure point for the thumb. Very easy and quick to wind and unwind.
    • Did you evenr sel these kites? If not, please reply with info and photos.
    • I ordered what was called an iFlite classic pink and an iFlite II vented in white from two different vendors, first I want to say I am excited to get them both in the air.  The iFlite II came first this morning and it was as expected, had a slight pink tinge to it and I like it better than pure white. latter today the iFlite classic showed up and the color is definitely pink. When I opened the IFlite classic there was a big hole in the center, looks like they shipped me a vented version. This was the last one they had because it is now gone off their site. I paid $38.00 for it which is cheaper than anyone sells the vented for.  Can someone tell me the differences in how the vented and non-vented will fly, I plan on using them indoors.  I am very pleased with them just want to know if I should still get a non-vented.  Thanks
    • undecided between the Superfly and Deep Space. I'm trying to update my kite quiver with modern kitMy e(s). I'm still stuck in the early 2000's. I owned several Prism kites, Mamba, a Betancourt kite, an Aerostar Pulsar Elite and Rev's.. All these kites are from the early 2000's. I'm looking into Mamba 3 and Benson's. My choice in the Benson seems to have narrowed down to the Deep Space and Superfly, but still considering the Supernova in close 3rd. Any input will be greatly appreciated. I have been off the kiting loop for some time due to other activities taking most of my time, but now things seem to have slowed down, so the kiting bug has bitten me again.
    • Thanks! You can get there too if you'd like. I've posted lots of video clips and tons of questions across several years. Not being near the kite groups means more effort to work with people, but I've found the community is very supportive with feedback overall. I've got some old recordings from 2016 struggling outdoor to consistently reverse without flipping, and working through the various basic team fly maneuvers. I joined this site back in 2017, and some of my earlier posts have video links. Five years later and I'm doing demos and traveling to kite festivals where I'm excited to be inside the ring. This one is a blast from the past for me, almost exactly four years ago: Now I'm here looking at fancy indoor flying techniques.
