Hello to all , I got this huge tank of a kite and as a newbe I've found it to be the most exciting thing I've done in awile. The kite is a K-44 Stealth cheap-o kite but at 8' 6" it Thunders across the window and pulls like a parafoil . For me I'ts a blast because for one I can fly it all day and I've only had it for three or four days. Cool to be able to keep it in the sky and carve and learn with . Ok now for the question. How do I land this thing.
? So far the first time in the air it flew for 1/2 hour and one line broke . So I had some 200lb.black line and I made up a long set 135 ft.and flew the second time for 45 min. and the kite had some nylon rings on the bridle to conect the lines to and my line burned through the ring and cabluie I thought it broke another line but it was the rings so I replaced them with small steal rings and the third time I flew for almost an hour and was flying low to the ground and in a lapse of con. pulled the wrong line and crashed in a nice cartwheel . Today was a bust in wind so far . So How do I stop/land without crashing ? A controled crash is all I know.....Poor Old Tom
