I do not own one but i was considering one and extensively researched it. only found some info on some french forum and they don't seem to like it beyond entry level flying. one folk redid the bridle and he seemed to like it alot better. some info here. maybe google translate can help you

hi Fluke
thank you for your advice; it's much appreciated.

im guessing £55 for an 8ft stunt kite incl lines, winder and straps will mean it is quite basic, but still sounds really good value for money.

If you want my honest opinion i'm pretty sure it's a very good kite. from what i've read, people were pretty happy with it once they modded the bridle
