    This was my first large delta

    Review this item:
    This was my first large delta and I'm impressed by its very pleasant flight characteristics. Its is a very smooth and graceful flyer and, in my opinion, the perfect first kite for the novice pilot. It'll launch in the slightest breeze yet won't pull like a tractor in strong wind. The kite is qiuck, easy, and painless to assemble and disassemble (be aware that you will need a good kite bag). It also has plenty of lift for tails and the like. This particular kite in the technacolor color scheme is the only masculine color themed delta (no pink or purple!!!) I could find on the internet (maybe I should start making my own kites...). I like to anchor it with a kite steak and fly my two line stunt kite directly underneath. A beautiful sight. My only major complaint is that after repeated nose dives the central rod burst through its rear seam and required stitching to repair. I suspect others will encounter a similar prospect. It's easily fixable however and preventable by double or triple stitching the back seam that hold the central rod. Overall, a well made kite especially considering the price. A mesmerizing soarer, its the kite I always end up flying in low winds. A kite like this has a place in every in every kite bag. Go ahead and pick one up - you won't be let down! Windy skies!

    My first "real kite" If you have only flown a Wal-Mart kite
    Review this item:
    This is a really cool kite I bought a smaller version of this model and flew it 3000 ft. Its better to just fly it at 500 ft or 1000 ft because if it goes any higher it doesn't stay head on.

    This is a really cool kite but a little hard to get in the air
    Review this item:
    My first "real kite" If you have only flown a Wal-Mart kite, this one will give you the "bug"! Start with as much line as you can. I went for 1000' and used all of it quickly. Into the Wind will be receiving more of my disposable income in the future.
