Delta shaped kites are always a good bet, as they are very stable in flight and don't have a tremendous amount of pull. If you get one, be sure to slide the leading edge rods down all the way to the trailing edge of the kite, when you fly. Those rods hold the sail open and flat, maximizing the amount of sail in use.

That doesn't necessarily mean it is easier to fly in less wind, just that it is capable of being flown with the right technique in those winds. Flying the delta in 3-4 mph winds may take a little bit more work and may not have a huge "fun" factor but it will fly and once it gets into the air it should stay there very well. One thing about super light wind is that if the wind does drop out just a little bit, there is nothing at all to keep the kite in the air. A super steady 3-4 mph wind and the kite should be fine, if it is gusty or has a lot of holes in the wind, it may be frustrating to put up. If the wind is averaging 6-7 mph then no problem with gusts, even in the lulls it should only drop down to 3-4 so you would be fine. The EZ flyers are very easy to fly and they fly extremly well. If the wind is 5-8 mph, both kites should go up in the air without even thinking about it and stay there until you are ready to haul it back in.

Do you mean the EZ flyers would be easier to fly than the rainbow delta? If so, what would cause that... are they more stable?
