Bought this tripod as a gift for my son to use with an iPad mount. I tried it out before giving it to him with my SLR camera and found it to be a very good support and at a price much lower than the more pro tripods around. Its not perfect, but it puts up a great fight against it opposition.
Despite spending hours doing adjustments of all kinds, this kite is just not for beginners.. I (as a lad) made my own kites and never had as many problems as I have had with this one. I have got it to fly, but in a limited way, and not in the way expected of a ready made kite.
