I have one and it is a good flyer. It takes about 5mph wind to get it off the ground. When the wind is stronger it will lift lots of laundry. I regularly attach 4 tails and hang a helix spiral off the line. Quite impressive with the size of the sail on this kite. I broke the cross spreader right where it attaches to the ferrule when the wind was gusting one day. I was in a hurry to get it down because rain was threatening so I probably contributed to the failure. I replaced the spreader with one a bit larger in diameter and also increased the length of the ferrule to about 25cm to provide a little more strength in this area.

I also had to adjust the point where the flying line attaches to the bridle to get the kite to fly stable and not over climb but most kites need some fine tuning. All in all it is a good kite and I fly it whenever I get the chance. I don't think you will be disappointed if you buy one.
