  21. Rods: The difference ?

    I didn't really intend to suggest we consider non-carbon spars, but since we've gone down that path folks might be interested in the following article from a few years ago: https://newatlas.com/cellulose-nanocrystals-stronger-carbon-fiber-kevlar/23959/ Even if there wasn't any advantage to strength, I like the renewable potential for using wood materials. I hate the thought that I just sent the remnants of my Diamond frame to the landfill - probably take 100+ years for them to start decomposing.
  22. Edmond, I'm sorry I missed this comment. I was busy over the holidays and just getting back to selling the kites. The train has a waiting list of 2 people. I'm asking $180 for the train, plus shipping.

  26. Software to Diagram Team Routines

    I'm curious if anyone else uses software to diagram their team routines? When we fly with JB there is no need to do this since he does a great job leading - making routines up on-the-fly so to speak. His style is very organic and flows naturally - I'm not quite there yet. When we fly alone, my family finds it better to have a known pattern we are trying to accomplish. This is probably because I'm not very good calling maneuvers, but it is also helpful to have a visual diagram to supplement verbal descriptions. I'm familiar with Reed Designs work: https://reeddesign.co.uk/kites/stack/#QuadTeam Unfortunately, those animations are not easy to extend and I'm not a big fan of Flash. Wondering if anyone else has attempted to do something similar - especially on a team level? I've been playing with a package called SynFig Studio and have gotten some basic routines outlined. It might be nice if we had a community of people approaching the problem in a similar way and sharing their efforts.
  27. Jet Stream Speed

    Put up the Jet Speed in 15 to 20 mph 18 degrees this morning. Crashed about 20' off ground not going very fast and broke tee. Had battens bowed out. Kite didn't come with instructions so maybe assembled wrong ? Kite should be more durable then that to fly up to 38 mph I would think.
  28. Perception

    With music, once you know the rules, you can break them with impunity.- My guitar teacher, a long, long time ago. "You can't do that!" "What do you mean? I just did it... ...There, I did it again." Multi-line kiting, like guitars, relies on muscle memory built up by repetition. I've said that learning to fly with a cheap* kite is like learning to play on a cheap* guitar. (*cheap- poorly made, not necessarily inexpensive) Sure, you can do it, but progress will be painful. It sounds like you have chosen some good kites to start. I would suggest only buying "up" from the Widow NG. That said, some kites are better at some tricks than others, so I would discount all mass produced kites. For example, you were going to practice doing fades close to the ground. I might grab a less expensive kite, like my Swift, before I would grab a more expensive light wind kite. Let the Swift take all the inevitable lawn darts while I work on control. Learning the Fade on the Swift definitely helped me do Fades on my Widow NG and other kites. There are also kites that don't like to do certain tricks, like a back flip.
