Re: How many hours off air flight is a kite built for?

i trying to come up with consensus about hours of flight with average use. 200 hours good kite, 400 hours average, 600 hours poor deformed kite and diminished flight caracteristics.

Re: How many hours off air flight is a kite built for?

simple math for the weekend warrior ! 52 wekends x 3 hour session= 156 hours of flight x 4 years . 624 hours of flight average. by that assumption kite will be very worn out! would you guys consider this kite has diminished flight carracteristics for its use?
