This kite didn't fly as well as anticipated. It's a bit heavier than plastic delta kites, the cheap ones you get at grocery stores, and it doesn't have a wide enough wing span to catch the wind and compensate for its weight. It is ok, it flys but it takes a bit of work and it falls once the wind dies down just a little. It shouldn't be a problem when there is a constant wind of 10+ mph but like I said it doesn't fly as well as the plastic ones which will stay in the air with relative ease.

There is also a thin plastic rode that goes across the middle of the kite which must be bent a significant amount before it can be inserted into the kite.

Now the good stuff.
The kite is made of polyester that won't really stretch or tear like plastic ones, which may be why it weight a little more. It does have nice colors and the streamers are beautiful and also polyester not those cheap plastic streamers that many kites have. The spool is one of those nicer D shaped spools that goes all the way around so your hand can't slip out which allows quick release of string. Those spools get tangled when you roll up the strings several times but it is what you usually get for kites in this price range.

Good kite, about 3 ft wing span. Not impressed, I feel I would get more bang out of those plastic ones but thats just because I like my kites to fly high with little difficulty.

When the kite arrived the background looked dark, but it is gorgeous. My granddaughter told me, "It's too dark." All it needed was some sun streaming through it with the streamers following behind. It's just the right size and I'm very happy with it.

This a beautiful kite but we can not get it to fly. It was also a little difficult to put together. I wish I had paid attention to the review which said it did not fly well.

I will preface this, we are novices. I have not flown a kite since I was a child. Also, if the wind was a little stronger or more consistent, it MAY have been easier, but I doubt it.

My daughter and I tried to fly this but never really got it up in the air. The kite took a 'nose dive' into the ground every time. We might have gotten it in the air for about 15 seconds at most. We gave up after about 30 minutes. Also, I was expecting the kite to be larger than it is.

Kite-flying has been a family tradition for Easter for years and it has been great fun for all generations. Unfortunately one out of four of these had a major design flaw and wouldn't fly. It was disappointing for the pilot. The other three were very successful.

I was really disappointed with the colors. I thought it would be much more vibrant. The colors in the kite did not look like the pictures.

I purchased this kite to hang in my classroom. The colors are a little dark but it is a beautiful kite just the same.

ITS OK, BEAUTIFUL, BUT OK. MY DAUGHTER LOVED IT, BUT I WAS LEFT WANTING MORE. NO MATTER HOW GREAT THE WIND WAS BLOWING, IT MANAGED TO SWIRL DOWN TO THE GROUND AFTER NOT MORE THAN A MINUTE.

Finally had a nice windy day to go fly this thing. And it was TERRIBLE. I just came inside, and searched on Amazon to find it so I could give it 1 star to prevent others from having a father daughter moment ruined by a bad toy!!!
I'm shopping for a replacement now. The airfoil one from Amazon looks like it's easy to fly.
