4 lines... your choices

Thanks all for the input! I decided to go with the 1.5 reflex rx and am enjoying it. I am finding all of your input to be true. The last couple of days have afforded some quality flying time and I feel as if I am starting to make a successful transition into quads. I have managed good landings and reverses as well as some good "infinity pattern" flying. Even some tip stands when the wind was consistent. Funny how a little success gets you hooked! thanks again to everyone.

Glad to hear you're having fun. It gets even better.

The "s" is missing from Transeye in the list. You should correct that so we don't mislead or confuse newcomers.

I won’t be bringing Djinn for sale on the Berkeley field (if I have them by then) out of respect to Highline Kites (no Djinn resale yet) and to Revolution Kites who pays for a learn to fly field and supports the festival as a sponsor, though it might possible to meet somewhere offsite... IF they’re ready by then. :)

🏁 Great show of respect and a prime example of how to do business as part of a community.. Wish I could like it twice!

Don’t get me wrong, I might fly the Djinn if I have them by then but folks will see the learn to fly field and figure those are the kites - anyone not in the know should probably get something else first anyway. 🙏🏻

There are Qunlon and Hengda on eBay besides Freilein and revolution.  I an OSKUSA Freilein Vertigo from Andy at Ocean Shores Kites.

Thanks to Elmo264 I finally got it flying at the kite festival Saturday.

OSK is a trustworthy source, but please stay away from those too-good to-be-true eBay kites. Something sets off my Spidey sense when it's 1/3 the price of all the other kites. Maybe it's because I'm from NY, and have a 6th sense for the scam, but I never bought into that trap. I spent market $$$ for all my kites, and have not been too disappointed...

I need to figure out how to replace all my Rev kites with Kite Forge kites, though. It's amazing how the kite funds dry up as the kids grow up !
