    Flew it today for the first time in 11-15mph wind
    Review this item:
    Flew it today for the first time in 11-15mph wind. Seems touchy for a beginner kite but then I only had one other stunt kite experience twenty years ago, with a Flexi-Foil Hot Shot (or maybe it was a Stacker?), which was a more advanced kite; That one seemed less touchy. Also seemed to require more wind than that one. And I could usually self-launch that one, while this one requires two people. Perhaps it was that one's leading spar vs this one's soft cell design. \ \ Anyway, my kids (ages 6 and 8) LOVED it, and I was grateful to God to be able to afford it (great price!) especially with everything attached, ready to go. All I had to do was unpack and fly. \ \ A little nit-picky thing: After the 45 minute flight, I had to take a lighter to seal up some frayed spots on the straps. Not a big deal, but it was a surprise to have to do that for something out of the box. \ \ Despite the fact that it seemed touchier than a more advanced kite, and required slightly more wind, and required two people, I would recommend it to even beginners with those caveats. My hyper-active attention deficit six year old got it aloft and held it up there for about 30 seconds, and this after only fifteen minutes of practice. \ \ So if you're a beginner, go for it. Just know what to expect. After a few hours you'll be a pro; My eight-year-old was even making turns after about 45 minutes. Good times.

    Had this sucker out today in 20 to 30 mph wind
    Review this item:
    Had this sucker out today in 20 to 30 mph wind. We had 4 kites out there and his one was clearly the most fun. The strings are longer yet the response is fantastic. The hotdog also has a large window for flying. Loved it. For 35 bucks this is it!
