  1. Think my wing tip just dug in a bit when I gave my launch tug. Couple weeks ago my girlfriend was tired of being my "re-launcher" so I started learning to belly launch with the kite pointed away. Not mention that I don't want to walk and lean it up against a soccer goal anymore. Once in the air, flying is no problem, but I'm trying to teach myself more. Been attempting half axles, so I'm relaunching a lot. Not to mention I'm inland and trying to fly in some lower on/off type of wind. Next kite purchase is going to be something that will go up easier in the lower wind range.

  3. Tried to fly my quantum today in some low wind. Got about a half hour. Somehow managed to break the lower leading edge rod. Think I was being a bit too vigorous while yanking the line to do nose away belly launches. It seems to take quite a bit of input motion with that kite, so I was probably overly enthusiastic in my pull. Wish i could say it was a more spectacular high speed crash tho.....haha!!!!
  4. No experience that matters so to speak in terms of my flying time, but on a whim / impulse purchase i bought a neutrino, a 2nd to stack on, and the neutrino bag. Flown it once, just the single kite with the tail. It's super fast, responsive, and a ton of fun. Couldn't be happier with it and can't wait to fly it again. Shortly I'll buy a 3rd to stack and another set of lines.
  5. What's up flyers?!?!?!? Hoping to be educated / read up on things i don't know....which is quite a bit at this point. Pretty limited flying time so far I guess but i can keep it in the air, do some loops, and basically entertain myself. Bought a Premier Osprey about 6yrs ago after a long time of wanting a stunt kite. Couple summers ago while on vacation I picked up a Prism Quantum that I only finally flew a month ago. That incited a recent purchase of a Prism Neutrino along with a 2nd stacker. Looking forward to adding many kites to my collection and filling up my bag of tricks that's currently empty! About the long and short of it.
