Those 10' lines will really help!! What weight line is it?? Again, try an even looser grip, you should feel like the handles could almost fall out of your hands!!! Posted Image Open your hands and use as little pressure as possible!! It will help you feel what the kite is doing!!! Remember, you are guiding, not forcing the kite!!! Posted Image

Because of the short length, either 50# or 90# will work ok!!! Posted Image Really work at keeping your grip loose, it'll help you relax and you should find that "feel" coming through!! Indoor is about finesse, not brute force!! Posted Image Try it, you'll like it!!! Posted Image
PS: Advise given by a fellow beginner at indoor flying!!! Enjoy!!Posted Image

Congratulations on your new toys! I got to indoor from the opposite direction, did outdoor first, and just got an indoor this spring, no dual experience. But I think some practice outdoors will actually help your indoor skills.

The skill sets are different though! I was surprised that I couldn't just pick up an indoor and fly it the first time I tried. I had thought, okay, it's basically the same kite, just walk backwards, right? But I think already knowing what to do with four lines helped me immensely. And I did notice more skill transfer from indoor to outdoor as Felix mentioned. My first time outdoors after the long winter, it seemed like I'd magically gotten a bit better. It can only have been indoor practice that did it.

It would seem that some outdoor practice with a nice wind at your back would allow you to focus on what the heck to do with quad handles, without worrying so much about the kite trying to drop out of the air all the time. You've got dual line habits to overcome.

Welcome to the forum, enjoy your new kites! :blue_wink:

Thank you everyone! Great community! Still have no chance to fly the B-Series. There is no winds at all here. Might go to the beach this weekend. Indoor practices going very well. Working on throws and catches now.
