  1. I’ve only ever used iMovie to edit videos. In the last few years mostly on the iPhone. It’s small but very simple and user friendly. Plus I can easily transfer GoPro footage from the se card directly into my photos app Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks Tiwi. I’m using the DJI Spark for the aerial shots and a GoPro Sessions mounted on my chest for the ground shots, both in 1080p. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  5. Between hard ground in the winter and leaving behind many stakes on the field I decided to get magic sticks for the rest of my kites. I used them on my first rev and should’ve done it for the rest of them all along. The ability to just drop the handles and leave the kite with no worries is well worth it for me.

    In this particular post no. I’ve always loved how direct sunlight or the lack there of affects the colors. Even on sunny days when big puffy clouds roll over the flying field it can look one way and change as I glide across the field in and out of the clouds shadow. Even the black panels can look almost deep blueish (is that a color) with the right light. However, with wind range, I tend to pull this out as soon as my Polo UL starts making noises and with a bit of tweaking at the leaders the more vented kites don’t come out till it starts to really pull. so yes a 2fer in both instances.

    On any given hour on the field or day even, I feel like I got 2 kites in one. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  12. A bit late(only 2 yrs[emoji12]) but once Polo went solo I did get myself a UL and I never shared a pic of my custom job. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The title of your post says it all. DONT GIVE UP!! Ive been flying for 5 yrs and there are many tricks/maneuvers that I still can’t get. Want to talk basics? How many times did I unwind my lines and walk back and forth from handles to kite and back to handles to undo twists and pull them apart to get clean lines? Hundreds. I’d sometimes waste 15/20 min doing that,I hated it but no matter what, I always thought of it as a learning experience. Now, takes me less than 2 minutes, 1 walk to the kite , pull and separate lines and BOOM, clean untwisted lines on the first shot every time. I know it’s

  15. I do love to share my videos but the main reason I film is for self evaluation. First thing I noticed is my hands. Other than when doing a upside down hover they’re pretty close to each other. That’s something I always have in the back of my mind as I fly. I guess that has stuck. Next are the two maneuvers I’ve been working on for a long time now. Traveling bicycle still needs work. I get 2/3 rotations than I lose the feeling and it stops traveling or it starts to head downward. THe other maneuver I can’t seem it be consistent with I don’t know the name[emoji23][emoji23].
