  11. cool guys thank you there is some great info there! @Cot51stStatei never really thought about doing things slower but ill give it a go next time im out (beach day on Saturday woop woop). i can hold a hover in all orientations and i can go backwards.... @Exult i never noticed about stopping before turning? i will have a look on saturday and its same with the pivot point, what would be the best approch to that? i was looking at videos on line and saw a flip flap.....yeah it didnt go well ha ha and another one where you kinda lay the kite flat then spin it while its flat....giving up on that one too for a while ha ha
