and Quantiym for about 3 years. I became discouraged by not being able to do some of the tricks, not having anyone to fly with or bounce ideas or info off of. Bought a rev 1.5 four months ago and have not flown a two string since !!!!!!THIS IS GREAT you can actually do something with the kite. My wife and I live in SanMateo CA. I fly on the bay side of the pen. Winds are usually between none to 12 to 16mph. I fly every day there is enough wind. Thanks to DAVE I now have a set of 50 ft lines. I want to learn to do the catch and throw,,any help or video,moral support would a great help. Thanks to all, till nex time. jimt

Try it as the kite is moving forward, when reaching 2/3rds of the window's height, then it will arc over in a nice smooth path, particularly if it's not blowing very much. Indoors you can get the flight path perfectly parallel with the floor, even when initiating the technique from this starting position, but line lengths will be much shorter.
Keep practicing and it will appear magical eventually.
