    Ok you need to understand yr wind window first. Also you must have had a wind chart in yr kite package that tells you best conditions to fly yr kite.
    Click here for a sample of one

    Once you've understood that, then this video is pretty good at explaining how to launch your kite by yrself. Good luck and let us know how you get on

    It is a normal kite with LED clipped on. Seen it at Punggol area from a distance The mini lightstick is a good alternative, lightweight too.

    pls re-enforce the kite string before your next trip down. If both break ... there goes the kite. lolx

    Hi guys.. just a word of caution..

    Pls be careful when flying powerkite in gusty condition..
    Generally, wind in SG is pathetic and the wind is always gusty..

    I fly powerkite for 4 yrs now and counting..

    Two yrs back, I became a superman when gusty wind caught me doing a loop with 5m kite.. Result, I torn my left arm ligament. Completely heal after a year.

    And at this moment, im nursing from a fractured knee on my right leg, after jumping with 6m kite gone awry..
    A gusty wind lifted me up 3-4m and dumped me like a rock. Landing on my right leg first.

    Scenario..
    - Wind might suddenly died after the gust, when i was still in the air or..
    - I did not redirect the kite properly and thus the kite overfly and collapsed.

    Fly safe..
