Fabric:- Scout kites are made with 3/4ozs. high quality Rip-Stop Nylon fabric. Bridles are sewn sheathed Spectra fiber.
Flying Lines:- Each kite comes complete with Dyneema fiber flying lines and Quad-Line Crossover Control Bar with Safety Leash and Chicken Loop. Line length is approximately 65ft for all three sizes.


As with all sports equipment exposed to natural elements such as wind, sea water, dust, sand and sunlight, life expectancy varies. With heavy use in these conditions, Scout kites can be expected to remain operationally effective for a minimum of 2 years. Of course, with moderate use and care, this time period can be lengthened considerably. To optimize performance, it is suggested that equipment be updated and/or replaced routinely.

Each Scout kite comes in a sturdy back-pack with detailed Instruction Manual, Crossover Control Bar with Safety Leash and Chicken Loop, Flying Line and Ground Stake.
Features, like internal cross bracing to maintain smooth power in turns and simplified bridle, make the Scout a great value-for-money choice for beginners and experienced pilots alike. Its' medium aspect ratio and 16 cell layout make it an easy kite to control for all kinds of kite power fun.
Though the smaller sizes are intended for strong winds and the larger sizes for light wind conditions, the operating range of each Scout will largely depend on the flyers skill level with this type of kite.
The Scout is particulary suited to the entry level Kite LandBoarder and Snow Kiter. A predictable kite with positive feel through the control bar.

 
HQ Scout 4.0 Getting started:- Whether flying for fun or Traction Kiting, the Scout is a worthy Quad Line Foil. They are good training kites for beginners and well behaved traction kites in higher winds for experienced pilots. No matter what type of kite you use for Kite Traction, there are a number of things to remember when selecting the best size to start with. The Scout to use will depend on the Surface; (Skis on snow or ice, Kite Buggy or Kite LandBoard on soft or hard sand, grass or hard ground), the Wind Speed; flyer Skill and Experience and flyer Weight. Whether the flyer is a novice or has a lot of Traction Kiting experience, the best choice is the smallest kite that will produce enough power to move. It is essential not to be overpowered, not just because it's obviously safer, but upwind travel will be easier and less power is easier to manage. A small to mid-size Scout is ideal to get familiar with control on solid ground in modest steady wind. Once you are confident that you can control the kite, then progress to Kite Buggy, Skis or Kite LandBoard.

Quad Handles or Bar:- We believe that Quad Handles give the most control over the kite. Handles give maximum maneuverability and can be used with a line between the top connection points for use with a harness. A Control Bar offers a simpler control system and for some fliers, an easier approach to Traction Kite flying. Handles can be used for all kite traction activities, whereas we would not recommend using a control bar for Kite Buggying. Scout Bar setup below.


Scout Control

These kites produce considerable pull and are not suitable for inexperienced flyers. Always learn to control the kites before attempting kite traction activities. Sensible safety precautions should be followed when flying these kites and protective clothing, especially sturdy shoes and a helmet should always be worn when using them for traction. Read instructions and safety warnings in with every kite.
