A bit of framing to complete and bridle needs to be tied but here's the look.

Successful bridle test. This kite is ready for 10-20MPH winds.

very swirling winds (note the kite on the ground flipping back in the first segment.) but a few seconds of usable flight time.

Reminds me of a recent throw I did where the kite went about halfway out and then turned around.  It was having none of it.

I did successfully throw launch one of my Symphony 2.2.4's once at Jockeys Ridge. Winds were OBX strong and I just tossed it straight up. Even had witnesses.

Wind in my neighborhood is notorious for the swirl. My usual spots are just not available right now.
