19/09/2010 Blackheath

A dry grey day as befits mid September. A high cloud base provided the panorama of the northern and southern stacks for the Heathrow approach with an odd, larger than usual aircraft, take off from City Airport thrown in for good measure.

In reflective mode I'm wondering how it is, after 20 plus years flying the Revolution kite, we 'put up with' not being able to do everything, 'precisely' that we would like to do with the kite. Then we also have to 'accommodate' new fliers who 'complain' about how hard it is to learn.

So, going back to last week's 'no wobble ladder up/down', I cannot claim to be able to hit the mark every time but I do think that this simple manoeuvre holds the key to the successful control of the kite and that it is an essential skill for the Mega Team environment. Owning the hover is one thing but the transitions may be even more important...
