  1. Thankyou Stephen glad you enjoyed
  2. Lots of turbulence from the wind rolling up the hill, probably about 7 to 12 mph, but smooth it was not, I kind of like the wind like that don't get me wrong I like those smooth onshore winds at the coast they just get predictable, I like a challenge.
  3. My new video edit, enjoy.. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
  4. My new video edit on YouTube, enjoy,
  5. Unless you find that kite that you really connect with in all conditions (through the different vents), then there's no compromise.
  6. It looks the same speed because forward flight speed has been dialed in a bit, looks cool going forward and backwards at the same speed, don't fly forwards as fast and your reverse will look faster.
  7. Enjoy, it all comes together eventually.
  8. Over control, the only reason for wing flip, try easing back a touch. Sent from my SM-G973F using KiteLife mobile app
  9. Currently the dog stake I'm using is not in production, there's some variants made in Europe, I haven't personally have any use of any of them.

  14. Hi Stephen, about three hours out in the field flying/filming, the edit took about 8-9 hrs I reckon, and yes the drone is using dronelink software which allows you to program the flight path on the fly. I glad you enjoyed it, thanks for taking time to watch much appreciated.

  19. So cool my video gave you some impetus to go out and try, that’s the great thing about the kite community we inspire each other. As to the spelling I live in the UK, the word axle, “the original, Middle English word for axle was axle-tree, which came from a combination of the Old Norse word oxhull and the old English eax, both of which mean “axis”, or “line around which the body rotates”. As opposed to Axel which is a real old religious name, meaning “father is peace”. Spelling differences come up all the time in the kiting world, differences in language worldwide, I will keep spelling it “axle”. It’s all for the love of kites🙏🧡
  20. I started my quad journey with an SLE on 80ft lines, self taught for my first 3-4 months until I found this site. I've owned revs, phoenix, bazzer eyes along with a few others, I found most started to fall apart within 3-4 months usually problems with the leading edge, I now just have my Djinns and have off loaded everything else. I'd say definitely watch and study all the Kitelife tutorials, setup and demantle everything the same way each time, will cut down on problems for sure eventually you'll find your own way. If you can find others to fly with cool, that's a rare situation for me I'm pretty much a solo flyer, plenty of online resources to get you going. Enjoy your journey for me it's a real source.

  23. Hi br1Ck, Dunstable downs would be a good location for you, I think there's people pretty regular up there at the weekends, and I'm sure they would be more than happy for to try some different kites.
