1. Ensure that the wind is blowing away from the flyer towards the kite.
2. Unroll at least 20 m of line.
3. When your helper lets go of the kite, take two paces backwards and pull firmly on the line.
4. Keep the kite braced to the wind by pulling on the line or walking backwards. The kite will then climb, and you can lengthen or shorten the line at any time.
Stunt kites – Launch with helper
1. Unroll at least 20 m of line - ensuring that both lines are of the same length (fix the lines with the clip on the handle), and that the wind is blowing away from you and towards the kite.
2. When the helper lets go of the kite, take two paces backwards and pull firmly on both lines.
3. Keep the kite braced to the wind by pulling on the lines or by walking backwards. The kite will then climb, and you can lengthen or shorten the lines at any time.
To perform the basic figures, pull gently on the left-hand handle (turn to the left) or the right-hand handle (turn to the right). When you have just performed a left turn, pull gently on the right-hand handle in order to come out of the turn. Make gentle, controlled movements. As far as possible, keep the hands at waist height and at 1/2 m distance.
Important: If you have made the kite turn two or three times to the left, you must make it turn exactly the same number of times to the right. In this way the lines are freed again and new figures can be performed.

The scale was developed in 1806 by Sir Francis Beaufort to estimate wind speeds.bft.
Die beste Windstärke um Drachen fliegen zu lassen liegt zwischen 2 und 6 Beaufort. Genauere Details entnehmen Sie aber bitte der jeweiligen Modellverpackung.
