  1. Thanks for that, sadly cancelled again today due to weather, hopefully I will get to try this at some point soon!
  2. Thanks that's one I had discovered but good to see I'm on the right track!
  3. Over at Airways near Ashbourne, one of the hazards of the hobby I guess!
  4. Well, my first weekend didn't go as planned, sadly had both days cancelled due to weather. Scheduled back in for next Saturday to have my first play with a kite, fingers crossed I get to have a go this time!
  5. Thanks very much, I'll continue reading, all booked in for a trial next weekend so will see how things go after that

All being well, by the end of January I'll have a go at moving a wing around and take it from there, until then I'm watching a lot of youtube footage (some of which does put me off I must say seeing some crashes!), and I'm going to have a read of some air law documents. If anyone has any good starter information beyond this please let me know James
