not a sport kite, but my flying wings laima doesn't fly or glide worth a crap. it's a totally useless piece of junk. it fails at even making a good paper weight. the wait was long for it to arrive, and the kite was a complete disappointment.
in our las vegas group, for gliders we have the iflite, wala, laima, bird-x, chiroptera, skate, manta, and the long way home. the laima stands alone in how bad it is. maybe i got a dud, but it makes me angry. if it flew as a single liner to paste to the sky i'd be happy but it won't stay aloft on its own for five minutes. grrrrrrr.
I think you might of got a dud......I like ours for tight spaces in the front yard........equates indoor too..........In higher winds it doesn't paste real well, though.......probably how you tune it..
