Just wondering what the smallest kite you've flown (with success) for trick flying was? I don't think I've found videos of anyone tricking anything as small as a micron but they have to be somewhere right?
I'd love to hear your stories!
Hi! I've been learning the basics of dulies on a $20 Amazon kite (here, silly video and I'm not doing any tricks but at least you can see the kite!). It was a great purchase and I'm now totally hooked on flying.
I can usually side and snap stall and axel it and I am pretty sure I'm at the point where I'm not going to immediately trash a proper stunt kite, and would love to upgrade. I'm on a pretty darn right budget at the moment though.
I think I can squeeze some more experience out of this kite (I can get it on its back so maybe a lazy Susan or something). However, if anyone has a step up for (ideally) less than $100 CAD (I am in Victoria , BC) I'd love the chance to try a previously loved kite
I've don't tonnes of research on kites but haven't flown any OPKs so it is hard to compare proper stunt kites to this little one. As long as the kite isn't too huge I'm sure I'll love it to death!
Thanks for reading!
