Did your original order come through in the end or did you have to go elsewhere?

Original order from usa, nice people to deal with, dont think the delay was their fault.

I had one for a while. It takes an age to get it adjusted just right with line lengths and the handles etc. Pulls like a train and scares the shyte outta everything for around a mile. Same rules as any rev......loads of practise and remember a little movement of the wrists is a lot of kite movement.

No way...we fly about 125ft, so 100ft is fine...remember the longer the lines , the more sky you have=less crashes!!!
