Flying a kite with a control bar is easy and fun. Use the control bar to steer the kite either left or right. Do not steer the control bar like a steering wheel on a car. The kite will not turn. This is the number one mistake made by novice fliers. To avoid this, think like a boxer. To go right: pull right and punch left. To go left: pull left and punch right.
Stop the kite from turning by leveling the control bar with both hands. Make all movements smoothly and try to time the control bar movements in the direction you want the kite to fly. Continuing to pull on one side will cause the kite to loop. If the lines are twisted, the kite will still respond to left and right control input. To un-loop your kite simply pull on the opposite side of the bar that you started the loop. Hold the control bar until the kite un-loops, and then equalize the bar and fly the kite in the direction you want it to go. Kites need tension from the lines to fly. In light wind keep the kite moving. Avoid flying with your bar upside down, because the kite will react opposite to the control input.
Landing your kite
Before you start landing the kite, make sure your landing area is clear. This includes the space between you and your kite. Make sure there are no obstructions, people or pets that your lines will lay on once the kite is down.
Starting from the 12:00 neutral position, fly your kite to the edge of the wind window, steering it to the level of 5 ft. off the edge of the wind window, steering it to the level of 5 ft. off the ground. If you landing sited is not adequate or your situation changes, slowly bring the kite back to 12:00 neutral position. If it is all clear, continue down until one edge slightly touches the ground. At this point, walk forward to put slack in the lines. Your kite will now flop over to lay on its back.
