So there was some fairly gusty moderate to light wind.
I went out there with my sister, and almost before I could think of a way to tug the kite up it was tugging me for more string! So I quickly let out about 150 feet of fishing line (fishing line was all that I had) and stopped there.
I did not think it was wise to let out more string because it seemed that the wind was getting too strong up there.
It looped sometimes, and went into fast, short dives but recovered in time. All went well for about 5-7 minutes. When it dived I let out some string (approx. 15') slowly and when it recovered I reeled in some string again.
finally though the maiden flight of this kite came to an end when a strong gust of wind came through and the kite leaned to the side and started to descend. When It reached about 40' from the ground 1t turned it's nose to the ground and rammed right into a tree. (I never got it back)
As mentioned earlier, there's more kite-making on this site than you can poke a stick at :-)
