Newbie question

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

Please forgive the newbie question! 

 

I've recently bought my 9 year old daughter a single line kite, and she loves it! I'm also loving it as it's bringing back many memories of flying kites when I was a young lad myself. 

 

My question is this. With a single line kite, it's easy to wind the string in and out whilst the kite is flying, but how do you do this for a dual line stunt kite? I had a stunt kite when I was younger, but I cannot remember how, or if, I wound the string in and out while it was in the air. Is it possible? Or does one just fly the kite at a constant length? 

 

Thanks

Ackoman

Multi line kites are flown at the full length of the lines.  Lines are typically wound/unwound with the kite on the ground.

Or one could do the longest roll up ever....like the old Deca rolling and unrolling...that would be something.

You've probably been looking at very inexpensive plastic kites with the "wind-up" handles. Simple answer is "you don't". There is generally no reason to change the length of the lines while flying one.
