yea-thought for a fiver you really cant go far wrong...as for flying it, id never flown one before and this is literally idiot(me)-proof.

Fantastic just ordered thank op

Half this price per kite if you want 18x from the same seller.


Flying a kite is so obvious.
(as easy as flying a kite - as they say)

best to start by unwinding the strings by at least 4Mtrs and let the two strings continue to unravel as the wind pulls the kite away from you.

when you feel comfortable with the height pull back on one side and it will travel thru the air in that direction. The rest should come natural.

Just remember 6 loops to the right needs 6 loops to the left to untangle it.

Oh yeah! And DONT let go of the controller.

Told you it was obvious.:)

20 sold since i posted this 28mins ago....

suggesting it's a 'power kite' is possibly overstating it a bit for a 1.4m job, but this is a very good price

Looks like fun to me, Hot!

for that money is a steal

strong line to support parachute? the pic is quite attractive.

Seems obvious but watch out for power cables overhead!

I want one but already have one similar... can I justify it.. hmm

How much lift can you get off one of these? nice big jumps in the air, or more like a traditional kite? I guess one of these might not pull you along on one of those kart thingies on the beach, but will I get a nice jump in the air off one?

Took a punt. Looks fun. Should hopefully keep my 10 week old daughter entertained for a least 20 seconds.

You dont see enough people flying kites these days. I have one annd it is awesome, the kids love it.

another HOT DEAL! i got my old 1.4m one tangled up a few months back and just havent been bothered to sort it out.....fiver = SORTED

Too good to miss. Thanks OP.

oh and heat added.......

bargain

Thank you, bought and heat added!!
