      Trainer kites are helpful. They help you learn how to
      fly your kite before you're ready to fly the big one.
      Unfortunately after you fly learn to fly the big ones,
      the smaller ones aren't as useful. I have a used air
      rush 3m that I'd sell to you for $95 including
      shipping. It's in good shape and taught me how to fly
      the kite without lessons.

      Generally there are no real restrictions. It's as if
      you are flying a regular kite. You're going to need
      to go to a Park or other open area as the lines are
