I think that Bart has hit it right on the head. Thank you!
I can say I would exclude myself from this based on this video. While the flight looked basic it becomes too complex with that many kites. The circles alone made my eyes big and I had a flash of anxiety at the thought of being in that. I need a safe escape route. Much more practice required for something like that. Thanks for posting.
Everyone who is considering joining a mega grid must be truthful to themselves.
Can I actually do this without screwing it up.
Also the other important observation is .." What do I need to learn and become more comfortable with to be able to do this"
Most people can hold hovers in good wind. Well it isn't always good. Maybe that is something that an individual might need to brush up on.
Are your inverted hovers absolutely rock solid in any position and in any part of the window not just the center.
Speed control etc.
However you don't make a mega grid without people and this organization (not intentionally)may come across as being elitist and push people away.
For those being scared off or put out by it.
There are positions on the grid which are easier in different wind conditions but your basics have to be solid.
Your own truthful self assessment will tell you what you can and cannot do.
However you don't know until you try.
Be reasonable when you go to join in a mega grid.
If you have been asked to step aside before...yes it hurts.
As an iQuad team member in my earlier flying I have been asked to step down from an 8 so the team can go out as a four and really rock it.
Yep it sucks at the time!
But Looking back on it at that time so did I!.....yep it was the right decision.
The one thing is certain. The spectacle is amazing, To both fly in and observe.
Be truthful and try.
That is all anyone will ask of you.
