I've taken the kite out a handful of times now and each time is a blast. I just pull the kite out of the bag and up it goes in a matter of minutes. This is my first kite and the control bar helps quite a bit. I have yet to master the quad handles though. I generally fly the kite on Mizzou's campus and the amount of people that stop and stare is awesome. I was recently flying the kite in 30 mph winds. The durability of this kite is astonishing. The high winds took the kite straight into a tree and continued to twist and tangle in the branches. After purchasing a saw from a nearby hardware store, we were able to cut the kite down and untangle it from the branches. The kite had not one tear or hole on it. The lines were still perfect. I was amazed. I definitely recommend this kite.
