  1. This was the last time I flew. Been a while... Took one of my E2's to the local church to attemp some inland flying. It wasn't great, but still fun,
  2. Hey everyone! Long time no talk! Hope everyone is doing well! Haven't been on here in a while. Unfortunately don't have as much free time to devote to kites as I would like, but I haven't given up. I'm still flying as much as I can, and have added several new kites to my collection. Haven't even flown most of the newer kites I have....🤒 Let's see.... since the last time I talked to ya'll I have been flying a few times. I was finally able to use the prism 75ft. tube tail in some decent wind. I put it on my trusty/beloved prism Quantum and put on a pretty good show at the beach. I also managed t
  3. I used the Kite Loft videos to get me started. They were very helpful.
  4. Thanks, I appreciate that. I'm an "aspiring photographer". Still learning, but getting little by little. ☺
  5. Just do it guys, you won't be disappointed! I find it challenging, but fun. 😎
  6. Don't know what I did, but it's working now. I do have to refresh the page after each image post. No biggie.
  7. Oh yeah!.... I also managed to do some one-handed flying tonight!
  8. Also, I can further confirm that this is one tough little kite. A couple times tonight I had moments of terror as I thought for sure I must have broken it. Nope... All good! I don't think it would actually be possible to stuff it into the ground any harder than I did tonight.
  9. Anyway..... Just got done flying the Kaiju again! I'm getting better! And by that I mean I actually kept it in the air for about 30 seconds. Haha... That really is an improvement, so I feel like I'm making progress. I was able to launch it up and over the top and then into a full circle and back over the top. It wasn't graceful by any means, but I'll take it. Looking forward to the next flight!
  10. A few random glitches here and there, but nothing that seems to be obviously related. I have had some RAM failures lately, but it was cheap used RAM I got from ebay, so I figured that it was just crappy RAM. No other major issues. Could it be because I'm using Internet Explorer? I can't watch live feeds on youtube anymore because IE isn't supported anymore. IDK.. I'm going to give it another try in a minute.
  11. Thanks Makatkam, but it's not the size, I've already tried that. I just got done taking some pics, so I'm going to give it another try.
  12. Hey guys! Well, I've flown the Kaiju a couple of times now, and had a blast doing it! I haven't really been able to do any tricks with it yet, but I'll keep working on it. One of the reasons I wanted to get into kiting was to get outside more and get some more exercise, the Kaiju fits this bill well. After five or ten minutes I had to stop and take a break...lol... So far I've only been able to fly it with two hands. I tried to do it like JB did in the videos, but so far couldn't figure that out. However I can now confirm that this is a surprisingly tuff little kite. I stuffed it straight into

    Happy day!

    Hi guys! Been a few weeks since I talked to y'all, been busy, I hope everyone is doing well. I had to stop in and say hi real quick and tell everyone how happy I am. Kaiju #31 is in my hands, and she's beautiful! I'm glad I finally ended up with purple/white, it was a tough choice, but it looks awesome! Great work @John Barresi and Kite Forge, and thank you! Im still having trouble uploading pics for some reason, but I'll try to get some posted soon, and maybe even a video when I can. Talk to y'all soon!
  14. I've tried a couple times. I could fly, but it was a lot of work just to keep the kite up. It's weird, even though it's very windy, there's hardly any pull on the lines and the kite doesn't want to stay up. This was with my Quantum and Hypnotist too, so not the lightest of kites. Next time I get a chance to go over there I may try with a different kite. Is a smaller or bigger wing better in those conditions?
  15. I do. I go to Galveston as much as I can, but it's pretty far. I have to make a whole day of it to make it worth the trip. It's definitely worth it when I can, though. I love flying on the beach!
  16. Thanks for the ideas. I will keep that stuff in mind. I think I will find a place soon enough, I do have some feelers out in the community. I am already friendly with the local school and police. They let me fly my rc's at the the local school, but unfortunately it's not a good location for kites, it's surrounded by trees. The place I was checking out was a couple towns over. There are places around if you drive a while, I'm trying to find something closer where I can get some quick flights in when I don't have time to drive somewhere.
  17. I went to check out that new flying spot yesterday, the school on the plain. It was locked up like Fort Knox. Drove around that area for a while looking for something else, but couldn't find anything. Bummer! The search continues. Had my friend with me that is still waiting to take his first flight, so he was bummed too. Oh well, I'll find a spot eventually. But this was another weekend with no flying.
  18. Hi, welcome. I'm pretty much a noob myself, but I started on a prism quantum, and would highly recommend it. And, I beleive the lady you're taking about has a few for sale. I bought a kite from her and was very happy.
