When do I fly?

I fly when there's a breeze, and nobody hassling me about doing something else.

Like today.

But it was hot as Hades out there. :evil:

And actually, the wind was very inconsistent...gusty and swirling. Not great, actually. Hard to practice control.
Keep calm, and park it in the pocket

IKE is on Image too!

Jeff.. I know what you mean... today I was out from 6-9am, 1-3pm and 7-9pm.

Hot as hell and winds from the west, while strong, were gusty and inconsistent. Tonight, Chris and I got together and the winds had calmed and while very light, made flying follows pretty easy. We also worked on some speed control and threw lights on the kites for some fun... Chris's black 1.5 is great looking, BTW.

Something I believe is that having to learn to fly and learn to control in the crappy winds that the midwest provides us can only help us to be better fliers when we do get good winds...
