Is this any good for a trainer kite, anyone have or tried this?

There's a lot of trainer kite to choose from but on this one you can use 2 or a 4-line bar.

If you can have 4 lines why bother having the two line option. airush got a 4line 2m inflatble trainer you may want to check out

I've flown this kite in both modes and works great. The downside is the added weight and drag of the lines in 4-line mode make it heavy so you'll need a solid 10mph to fly it. The 2-line bar is to cut down on costs is what they told me...including a 4-line bar and lines set would double the price...I guess you save the money by using your own 4-line kiteboarding bar.

Atlast someone replied! Thanks!

I've ordered this trainer kite anyway and waiting for it to arrive. I already have an old 5-line bar to be use with this kite.

10mph, lower than that it wont lift off the ground?

No Problem! Yeah, you'll need 10mph but only for 4-line mode. We had it up and having fun in 6mph and less with the 2-line setup. The 5th line will work just make sure to only use the four lines and disconnect the 5th line before flying the kite...just extra drag.

I thought the whole point of a trainer kite is to show beginners how to fly a kite without the complexity of a 4 line bar.... if you want to fly 4 line use a 4 meter or 5 meter LEI as a trainer

No problem with that because I have a 12meter and 16 meter kite. I just want to fly the trainer on low wind days. :D
