Safety Remember, flying safely is your responsibility. DO NOT FLY NEAR: People Airports Power lines Cars Storms First Flight Pigtail Attach your flying lines using a Lark's Head knot as shown. Flying line Left turn Right turn Unwind your lines and check that the flying line in your right hand is connected to the right-hand bridle with the kite pointed up. If not, switch hands. Some people color code their line ends with a magic marker to make this check easy. Clear your flying area. Make sure there are no people in your flying space. A sharp, sweeping pull on both lines will launch your kite. Keep your arms by your side and your hands low at all times for best control. Tuning Once you can keep the kite in the air comfortably in moderate winds, learn to tune your bridle for different wind conditions. This takes only a few seconds to do, and it will let you fly your kite easier in a much wider wind range. Find complete tuning information in the "Flight Training" section of the Prism CDROM or on the Prism website at www.prismkites.com Specifications FIELD CARD FlashLight The perfect introduction to light wind flying, the FlashLight flies easily on those drifter days when everyone else is grounded. If you already have a good kite for moderate winds, you'll find the FlashLight makes a perfect second kite for your collection. Once they've mastered the basics of controlling their kite, most people find that flying in light winds is more fun. Because the kite moves slowly, you have more control and can do a much wider variety of tricks. This is why most of the really high-tech kite designs are oriented towards the lower end of the wind range. Read this field card carefully to be sure you assemble and adjust your new FlashLight correctly before flying.

Two long lower spreaders One short upper spreader Two short standoffs 7 Two long standoffs Insert the upper and lower spreaders all the way into the leading edge fittings. Check that the bridles are clear of the fittings, and hold the spreader rods close to the end as shown so you don't slip and puncture the sail. 2 Connect the leading edge rods for each wing at the ferrules. Be sure the bridles are attached beneath the rubber fittings as shown. 8 Insert the ends of the lower spreaders into the center "T" fitting. 3 Using your upper spreader as a tool, tension the elastic at each wingtip as shown. 4 Hook the elastic into the slot on the side of the wingtip nock. 5 With your wingtips tensioned, check that the sail is smooth and wrinkle-free along the leading edge. The tighter your tip tension, the better. Tension the sail by clipping the standoffs into the lower spreaders. Hang the kite from the bridles to check that they aren't tangled.
