I'm a newbie to quad kite flying and this site. I was given from a family friend a old quad kite sadly not a rev but got my funds building fast to purchase a 1.5 ( can't wait )
Well I took to the sky's up dustable downs in the week and to say I had lots of faffing about to start with finally got to the point where I could get the sail off the ground and had some good fun but along with a lot of frustrating out of control spins, twisted lines and crashes !!! I'm based in Watford hertfordshire so not far at all from the downs is there anyone on here that are frequent flyers there as I would love to hook up one day to watch the basics And to be shown a few tips I have watched the vids on YouTube and read loads on here and have found the information very useful..thanks guys/girls
I've managed to get it to hover up and then down to a soft landing . The wind was a bit gusty so struggled to hold a hover and mostly struggled to take off with the LE down or up !!! I read pegging the handles is a must so must try that the next time as the sail just seem to blow over or tumble across the grass ( I know this is going to be a long learning curve and so looking forward to it
Thanks again for the posts/info on here to help people out like myself to get off the ground
Any frequent flyers at Dunstable downs please let me know when your there next please if you fancy giving a newbie a few tips .
