Pretty kite, but a handful

I like the kite, it's fun to fly, but it's not very stable. If the wind's too strong, like Hawaii trade winds, forget it, the kite's going to eat sand every time, just a big right-hand turn into the ground (or ocean). I tried different line positions, more weight on the tail, nothing worked to keep it flying in strong winds.

Too light, and it flutters, same result. In just the right wind, like a strong afternoon seabreeze, you can keep it up, and it's fun. It tends to dive when it gets too much air, but you can let out some line and it will straighten up. If it flutters, you can take the opportunity to reel some in. It's not a kite to hold and forget while you watch the sunset, you have to manage it most of the time.

That said, it is my favorite kite when conditions permit, it looks great in the morning and evening sun. And if it takes a dip, well, it dries off quick enough.
