This kite is just too much fun to keep a secret!  Smiley

We're sometimes flying it in too much wind here, but you get the idea.   In <1 you can just stand there and fly it with drive.

Nice.  I love those video transistions.

Can you do any kind of pitch trick with the ITRIX.  Wraps or JL.

The cometes look pretty neat with that kite.

John,

I have yet to see the kite do more than 1 rung of the JL, but I imagine it can be done.  You can see a bit in the vid that it drops pretty fast when doing a half-backspin to turtle.  I have rolled it up, but its best to just give it slack and let it roll around itself - no pop, maybe a little push when it is mostly around.  It does snap and multi-lazys very easily and the comete with a little bit of work.  The cascades are a bit different on it due to the small size of the kite.  Also does slots really well and I've heard it tazs great.

I haven't liked most indoor kites that I've flown outdoors, but this one is alot of fun in super light wind.   

The video was shot in just a few minutes - we were just goofing around having some fun, which is great to be able to do when your other kites require too much effort to fly.  The vid transitions were just put in there by the software I was using based on the movie theme I chose - using iMovie.

Nice video Tom. It shows nicely how the Itrix looks while tricking.
What length lines did you have on it?

The Itrix looses a lot of altitude on JLs so it's difficult to keep it going. And yes, it Tazes great!

Thanks James.

Lines are short - around 40 feet or so.
Btw, do you put any weight on yours?

I was planning on trying it with longer lines so. I've been using 25'.

No weight but Rxburner said he put extra weight on his. So I though I'd try a little too.

Mine came initially with a nickel on the tail, but I took it off.  Now that I am used to flying the kite, I think I'll try some weight on it again.  If it would only pitch a little faster.
