    I have a couple places I prefer to fly. Northmoreland park is one of them. Crooked creek lake park is another place I love to go. I will be checking out the old football field in Avonmore pa as well since I recently got a kite buggy. I just heard that the Pittsburgh kite club meets in Newcastle pa at a place called Coopers Lake campground and event center. We will be driving up there today to check it out. Even though it is suppossed to storm. I believe we are going to attend the event there coming up as well. I would love to hear of more places near us for flying.

    Welcome Koobecaf Uoykcuf

    Thanks Mak. Reallife has taken away from kitelife lol. But but......I got a kite buggy! Im in disbelief. I did also get a micron over the winter. Flew it with a 75 foot long tissue streamer. AWESOME to say the least! I also have several monster fish that take up alot of my free time. There are tons of videos on my youtube of them also. https://youtu.be/j6TO4jkri9Y that is the video of me flying my micron. Here is my first attempt at the buggy lol https://youtu.be/eBpW5prHqF4 Many more to come !

    Just Starting Out / Pittsburgh

    Hi Todd I am from the Pittsburgh area and was in your shoes not too long ago LOL I can actually give you a lot of beginner tips because I am still a beginner and would even be willing to meet up and show you how to fly I even have a few stunt kites that would be ideal for a beginning flyer that are not brand name but fly very well are very durable. The prism Jazz was my first brand name stunt kite purchase and I must say, if I were to do it all over again I would not have bought the Jazz right out of the gate I would have either went with the quantum like everyone suggested to me but by that time it was too late LOL I found around here wind is not very constant and one of the biggest mistakes I made in the beginning was trying to learn how to fly into little of wind for as heavy as my kite are even the Jazz is in my opinion wakey for its smaller size but let me tell you, with the right wind conditions and Bridal setting this thing flies precise. I would strongly advise after you learn how to fly to invest in a prism 4D they will fly in zero wind even it was definitely worth the purchase it is the 2-line kite I fly the most just because it does not take much wind at all to lift that kite off of the ground and keep ot in the air. HOWEVER It is a fragile kite NOT FOR BEGINNERS. Also. My daughter jist turned 12. I tought her how to fly 2 liners pretty easily. And its like riding a bicycle. If you have any questions please message me here on in dm and I will help as best I can. Jason

    JB, I saw yours already that is amazing to say the least. Think about the fanciest I'm going to get is try some eyes from fishing poles to lessen the friction. And maybe link up each line to its own eye. Mine will only be for dual line for now. Any tips for hooking up two sets of lines separately? Here is a video of my dogs taking a larger kite hand launching and catching it dogstaking

    Welcome Koobecaf Uoykcuf

    I would like to add about dogstaking, first of all it is dangerous because the kite is right at the same plane as you are some of the time, therefore It can hit you. Also if you are flying with 100 foot line it is like flying with 50 foot of line as far as how the kite responds. my kite responded very quickly but also had a Springy feel so I had to anticipate and turn earlier than normal and it was more responsive with the shorter line. I had moderate wind also and it was gusty but therevwas not much pull perhaps of the fulcrum effect that the dogstake also adds. It was also different to launch i felt. I had to pump to get it off the ground, and then take up the slack and fly away. Kind of like after getting the kite into the air any distance off of the ground, then launching from there. I also just switched hands. I always fly my kites with red pigtails on my right hand. Dogstaking I hook the kite up as uaual with red on right, and my hands just different with red on my left instead of my right. Exactly just switch hands with the straps and lines you usially fly with and the kite will fly as close to your exact plane in space as you controll it to and the kite will fly to the right side of the wind window and pulling your left hand will turn the kite to the left just like flying with straight lines. It definately adds a new aspect to flying that is worth the $2.59 that i paid for the dogstake and so much more. I can't do tricks yet but ya, wow ! That would be awesome seeing them up close. But like I said in the beginning. IT CAN BE DANGEROUS if the kite would hit you or someone standing nearby. Expecially if they are standing beside you. But if you havent done it before, you are missing out if you dont do it. And that is just based on my first experience. I cant wait to do it again.

    Night flying

    Mak, THESE ARE AMAZING ! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO visible in person ! I was worried about the direction they were facing at home....when i got to the field.......it made no difference. I couldn't even see the blinking in person that the camera picked up.....the blinking was just them flopping around I suppose. The green and blue on the spine were still visible through the sail even though they were on the back of the kite.....Now that I have seen them in flight. I should have had them pointing at the sail to light it up......regardless, I AM SO SATISFIED ! ! ! I CAN FLY AT EFFING NIGHT !

    I got them at a local Family Dollar store. I have seen them at Walmart in the cheap toy section beside the dinosaurs and zoo animals etc. But they can be bought online VERY cheap !
