The Cody kite is a kite for serious fliers. By your fourth flight, the kite will be easy to assemble. Practice helps. In a fresh wind, it pulls like a truck, but is a steady kite. You will need gloves. You will need to figure out your ground stake scheme before launching. The Treczock Cody is art, history and well constructed treat for the modern flier.
