The Ten Quadmandments
Thou Shalt Not Launch,without looking properly first.
Thy should remove Thy Stake at all times,when not in use
Concentrate on your own kite, not anyone else's
Two reasons: 1) If you look at all the other kites in the sky making a pretty picture, you are not concentrating on your own and it is likely to 'wander' off of it's own accord... You will see the pretty pictures later, on photos or video.
2) When you're in a team whose kites are all identical, it's easy to forget which kite you are flying (easy in the Squad.. "it's the blue one") and then it's back to reason 1)
How about also:
If in doubt, stay where you are in the sky, and await further instructions. Team flying should be fun Mistakes happen for many reasons, just relax and listen to the caller, they have the experience to get you out of any 'birds nest' you might find yourself in.
