Those 10' lines will really help!! What weight line is it??
Lines are 50#10' I think it is a Speedline brand.

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!
Just pretend all my statements are prefaced with IIRC, AFAIK, IMHO, and end with "Just my $.02," okay?
(And stop asking for cookies, all you new darkside converts! It was all just a ruse to get you here!)
