I'd like to get into quad kites, and I'm looking for a cheap(ish) beginner kite. I don't fly often enough that I think I will ever be an expert, but I know that quads are not easy to learn, and picking the wrong beginner kite makes it even more difficult.
I'm heading on a beach vacation for the next two weeks, and expect that there will be a few good days to fly, so I'd like to pick up something in the area (Florida Cocoa beach/St Augustine), and the only kites I can find at or under $200 are the Rev Exp, HQ Mojo, or NewTech Volkquad. I'm also trying to see if I can pick up a used Rev, but don't want to bargain on that.
So, long winding intro over, from what I've read:
Rev Exp is ok, but a bit sluggish.
The Mojo is quite twitchy and nobody really said anything truly positive about it.
Volksquad is a bit of a dark horse, not much out there, but the price tag of $160 including lines and handles makes me wonder if it is worth considering.
I've also seen good words about the Freilein/OSKUSA Vertigo, but it is not easily available in the area, and a bit more pricey than I want.
At the moment I'm leaning towards the Rev Exp, but was hoping someone here with more knowledge could weigh in.
Looking for a Prism 4D in the older 'yellow' colour in good condition. As I'm UK-based, ideally one in Europe, to avoid high shipping costs and custom charges, but will consider US-based as well if the price is right.
Hi guys and gals,
I am new flyer in the sunshine state (US Florida) I have just gotten back into kiting. Since was kid. I am older now lol grey hair and all. Been doing quite a bit of diy stuff. And having a ball. Been steadily flying single liners but have the bug for duals. Again just saying hi now and learning the forum. I have seen some threads about which kites are recommend by you guys to get into stunting. But I was wondering if it might be more beneficial to start on a parafoil. Instead of a Delta. No frame to break. Lol does anyone have any thoughts on one verse the other. I am old school and haven't touched a dual line kite. So have lots to learn. If this is answered somewhere else please point me in the right direction. Also does anyone know if there are any kite clubs in central Florida. I saw something about TIKK but they haven't posted anything since 2014. Thanks in advance
