In Topic: Stupid question time!

Remember, which ever part of the kite is upward, that part must be pulled toward you, into the wind, so that the wind is spilled downward, or gravity will take over, and the kite will drop toward the ground.

This rule never changes. It is true of any kite, moving or still.

When you head for the ground inverted and turn to the right, placing the left side of the kite upwards, you must then pull back on the left handle to move that end of the kite into the wind relative to the right side of the kite which is now downward.

Hope this helps.


That makes sense. Ill keep an eye on what Im doing with my left hand. Im also hitting the ground while trying to propeller while the kite is in this position so its prob the same problem - Thank you very much.

If anyone is considering attending tomorrow then I can highly recommend it!

Bri and Dave plus there lovely wives went to a huge amount of trouble today to ensure everyone was happy and fully catered for. Homemade pumpkin soup was a lovely suprise - totally delicious.

Being novices me and my OH were struggling with the wind strength today, but tomorrow is forecast to be a little lighter. It did rain for a lot of the afternoon but not one person gave up flying due to this - much less rain forecast for tom! (0.3mm/3hr tom rather than the forecast 3.5mm/hr today!)

Pictures are uploading right now but be warned they are very amateur!
