Prism 4D Custom

Recommended Posts

I have #3 of 14 of the same batch of kites.  I received it in a trade a little while back.  It is a beauty.  My intention was to get it as a back up to my heavily flown standard 4D.  The 4D is a wonderful kite that will allow you to fly most anytime & anyplace.  Some say it is a bit twitchy & not for them.  But if you put in some time with this kite it will improve your flying of most any other dualie.  But that's just my thoughts from out here in the sticks.  SHBKF

climbing high on short lines & no wind


gliding out to gain ground

That thought has crossed my mind...to learn with the 4D with little to no wind. Then flying other kites would be easier given the wind conditions. 

I just don't want to break it, like one of my other ones I seem to not be able to keep in the air.

If you don't have a lot of experience with duals, you might consider a more robustly built kite to learn with like a Prism Quantum. Both the Kymera and the 4D, although very well made, are not intended to take the abuse that a beginner can dole out. They are both really awesome kites, and if you get the hang of tricking duals, you will probably own one of each in the future.....

Just saying.

      Another in our ongoing series of Rev tutorials, this one covering basic light wind techniques and how the Rev transitions between a powered state and gliding state, enabling anyone to fly in the lightest of winds, simply by cycling your ground space and know how to apply tension.

      NOTE: A reliable (and free) cross-platform video player is VLC, which should work with any file format including MKV.

      I have a side project that I have been working on for the last few months. It was somewhat of an experiment with different technologies, and has been very much a learning experience. But, today I am ready to announce the beta launch of kitepaint.com.

      This is a beta launch, so the project is at the point of usability, but is not yet finished. The reason I am beta launching this is to get some more eyes on the project to find bugs that I may have missed, and to see what public opinion is and how it may influence changes to the site.

      I am launching with only one product at the moment, the Revolution B-Series PRO. But, I am hoping to add more to the site in the future.

      Feel free to play around on it, and let me know what you think!
