  1. Thanks so much! PMed ya. I'll be around I'm sure. I'm pretty new to flying. This one won't be flown till I've gotten a chance to learn more. I just got my first rev (an EXP) for Christmas and it's been pretty cold so haven't had but a few flights so far.
  2. I just can't put into words how grateful I am for the opportunity. Thank you to everyone for the congratulations! I will treasure this kite forever. Much love!
  3. It's a face...It's a cat...it's a cat face! =^.^=
  4. yep they sure are and thanks again everyone let you know how she does next time I fly her.
  5. I had to mark it but I moved it this far towards the nose. I'll keep playing with it next time I'm able to try it out. Thanks so much everyone! I also put that other larks head knot that I had moved back to where it was originally.
  6. It's an Airwave Zero by flying wings. So UL/indoor. I had been using it outdoor in light wind but recently took it indoor and figured there was something I could adjust to allow for better indoor flight. Course maybe not. I have the top let out all the way already. When I was flying it indoor it was set like the first picture but it did look like it laid more flat when I dangled it with the setting like the 2nd picture so thought it might help but wasn't sure if that was right. Thanks for your help guys.
  7. Been reading the Andy Wardley page on different bridles and trying to figure out what I have on my kite and how to adjust this thing for different situations, but I think I ended up more confused. Could someone here point me in the right direction? I know the basic nose in/nose out adjustments and how it affects flight but I think this one can adjust it's pitch? I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly.
  8. The secondary adjustment points? I've not yet seen this on any of my other kites. There's the typical ones near the nose and that's on the last knot setting (nose out). But I noticed this knot. I had it on the inner setting as shown in the first picture. New setting in the second. When I just let it dangle, there is a definite change in the way it lays and it looks like the new setting will be much better for indoor. Been eyeballing John's Kaiju though I must admit, even if I don't "need" it.
  9. I had thought I had it adjusted all the way out but I think I found another adjustment point on the bridle after looking at it again. Going to try that out next time. Looks like hangs more flat after changing that point so in theory it should be better.
  10. Thanks everyone! I will try to keep a more centered area next time and work on getting comfortable doing more of the basic maneuvers. I'm not sure if a different kite would be better at this time or not. I bought this kite (Airwave Zero) for light wind and even though it CAN do indoor, I think it may be better suited outdoors. In your more experienced opinions, what would you suggest? Should I stick to learning with this kite or get a new one that was designed for indoor use only? I would like to eventually be able to trick with it and indoor ballet is I think where my primary goals are at. Whatever would make learning easier as I'm teaching myself from online info and from watching videos. I have a birthday coming up in April so a new kite can be arranged. 😁
  11. Found a nice little place in a nice little town to practice and learn indoor dual line. After an hour of trail and error, I started to get the hang of it. Can't wait to go back again! Here's a video of my progress today. I just felt like sharing.
  12. I put together a Facebook page for Champaign, IL. I'll post stuff related to the area. Feel free to follow if your interested. https://www.facebook.com/KitesOverChampaign/
