Minimum field area?


How small is too small - i mean field area?
There's a field just 5 min drive away something like 320 yards by 200 yards. Open, lat and maintained. There are small bushes all over the place which could be a problem.
Than there are few fields with same space, no bushes but the grass it not cut regularly.

Plenty of room. Question is...the winds. Are there lots of trees around that would scatter the wind? Are these businesses taller buildings? Etc. I'd buggy in my back yard if I had wind clean enough

Yeah...that's plenty of room. I think my spot might be 150yds long if that and probably 50yds wide. And that's with a buggy. Static and landboard you can go less.

Well yes, there is a forest nearby like 200 yards away.
I know the winds on this field after using my trainer kite! On the bottom there are wind shadows here and there but 10 meters above the ground it is all clear.
I think i will try this field with bushes first.
