    I went with the B/W version

    I went with the B/W version in hopes to increase the long distance view ability and have been rewarded with a spectacular presentation. My Sky Bird can be seen for at least 3 miles in rolling pasture land. It is a dream to fly. Yeah, it has a great deal of pull, but a well set fence and post seem to hold. It has so much presence as to take over the show of my other 10' to 12' DDC running 96', 48', 24' and 12' matching tails. It is not a complicated or tricky kite, but it has that "something" a fancier of large kites can't leave alone and must have. Bottom line: If you like 'em big you need a Sky Bird! PS Can not wait for George Peters Pterosaur Kite it looks to have the same pizazz.

    I can't wait for the weather
    Review this item:
    I splurged and bought this for myself recently, and let me say I am SO happy I did.... I really enjoyed flying my Aloha Sky Bird for the first time, this is my first large kite and I wasn't sure what to expect, I didn't have much wind 6-8mph), but it went up with ease and soon after I was just enjoying flying this massive beautiful colorful graceful Aloha Sky Bird. I was on the fence between the cloud bird and sky bird, I am glad I went with the larger version, this is an INSTANT hit at our community field/park with everyone in a mile radius coming over to see it.

    Just to update my previous review, I have now had the opportunity to fly the Aloha and black-and-white versions together several times. Reaction from spectators has been great and, perhaps surprisingly, the majority say that they prefer the black-and-white one. It is my preference, too, so don't be afraid of its lack of color - it stands out really well against all the other kites in the sky with their rainbow colors. Best, of course, is to have both!

    So I've had this kite
    Review this item:
    The Sky Bird looks fantastic, obviously, but its best feature is that it flies so well. It assembles quite easily for a kite of this type, and takes to the air as if it were the real thing. It needs very little wind, but is also happy in stronger breezes. I fly it usually with two 55ft matching fuzzy tails, and it almost takes up the whole sky. \ \ I bought the black and white version from ITW, and I love it so much that, when I saw a shop-soiled Aloha version on offer at a real bargain price from another kite-dealer, I couldn't resist getting that too! \ \ If I could give this more than five stars, I would.
