|HOW TO FLY A STUNT KITE
ALWAYS be a safe kite flyer !
1. Choose an open
area away from obstacles, power lines and trees.
You need steady wind to fly your stunt kite, gusty or
strong winds are not
recommended for learning. The wind must always come from
your kite by following the assembly instructions supplied
Connect your flying line to the handles/straps & the kite. Make sure
line & flying line are free of tangles and equal lengths. Use the entire
length of lines
to learn. You can adjust the length but the shorter the line - the
quicker the kite.
3. When your
kite is launched - let it climb like a regular kite &

opposite direction, this

Learn to fly your kite in 7 - 10 m.p.h. / 11 - 16 km/h

is extremely important that
these fittings are pushed back down into the original
position, otherwise sail damage
may occur. This precaution is built in to prevent kite
