Trainer


Does anybody have any suggestions where might be a few good spots to practice on the trainer other than Fort Henry?

Re: Trainer


just find an open field some where, with exposure to the wind. I used to use woodbine park in bayridge a fair bit, there is always fairfield park on hwy 2 about halfway between here and gananaoque. Find a high school football field maybe? Regiopolis Notre Dame out on Division street could be good. Just some thoughts.

Re: Trainer


lay it out with the trailing edge upwind. Put some kind of weight along the trailing edge so the kite stays put while you walk to the bar. Snow works in winter, sand is great, a bunch of small rocks works just fine. Once at the bar tension up the lines so the kite starts to peel of the ground and then give a good tug to get it out from under the weight. Should fly up nicely.
