Flight of Fancy,
This review is from: Radsail 3m Power Kite (Misc.)
If you're looking for your first power kite, then look no further. I'd previously only flown small stunt kites, and did a lot of research before finally settling on the Radsail 3m. It makes the progression to power kiting very easy - and incredibly pleasurable.
The kite is simple to assemble, though it does help if you have another person to assist as the whole thing is much bigger than you might imagine! If you're new to power kiting then this kite is great for learning about brake lines, which you'll master in no time, and you'll become addicted instantly. Being dragged across the beach by the kite might give you a bit of a shock the first time that it happens, but you'll soon learn to anticipate moves like this. If you decide to buy this kite, I'd also recommend you get some kite killers (HQ are the brand that I use) - they're essential for those moments when you feel the kite is too powerful and you just need to let go.
In summary, this is an excellent first power kite; you won't regret this investment.
