Flat axles are a matter of grace. Grace takes practice. Believe me when I say I had a thought on this subject that might have been helpful and forgot where I was going with this after "Grace takes practice." DOHHH!!

I tend to spank my kite in the light wind. Faster tempo music, usually 30' lines using my arms and upper body to help save my legs. Between my knees and lower back I get ya on the moving too much as you get older. Nothing like taking a step only to feel your knee pop out and back in. Kinda kills the flying mood. If you get the chance, Philomath, for some reason is pretty consistant in having more than enough wind to fly between 5:30 and about 10 pm. Probably even get some opportunities to break out the Mid or Full Vent. I gotta start getting out to warm up for Lincoln City next month. Sure I'm rusty after about.... well actually not sure how long it's been since I've been out to fly. Can't wait to get on the line again. Ready for a day of permagrin... lol

I have been flying in and around the Corvallis area for 15+ years now so I know what you mean when it comes to our wind. I'm curious about your flying style. Do you prefer or mostly fly standing still or do you move around with the kite? Do you fly using the full 360 X 180 window when the wind is down under 2 mph?

Just curious. I use my Pro std., Race frame with the 3 wrap center LE and 30ft 90# line most of the time as an idividual flier when the wind is 3mph or less. A 1.5 with 2 wrap or Race frame will fly indoors. Just curious.
