  1. Past hour
  2. This should be helpful. Zero_Wind_Deca._manual.pdf Even with instructions it can be mind-boggling the first couple of times. I once tried to assemble one in the field without instructions and got nowhere. Best to have someone show you, and even then if you don't fly it for a year or two you'll probably need a refresher course.
  3. Yesterday
  4. So it wasn't just me... Ok it was mostly me! But it's nice to see that Prism has announced a redesigned centre T for the Quantum!
  5. Ditch the Kevlar unless you are 100% sure you will be flying alone! Stuff is brutal around any other line and will cut people down! Use LPG or Skybond or Shanti Speed for them instead! Good lines, a bit expensive, but if you cut someone down using that Kevlar, you will know how the other guy feels!
  6. When selecting a kite to fly in ultra low winds, less than 4km/h, I will prefer to put a little extra effort in to have a bit more mass in my kite. When flying a B Std with a Diamond frame as opposed to a Black Race frame, I prefer the extra mass of the heavier frame. Sure you have to work a bit harder to keep it in the air BUT the returns come in the form of extra inertia. Like Paul said, it's all compromise. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app

  12. I would like to see the "TKL" a and the two lines going out from the figure bit bolder. The other figures don't look like figures to me. They look more like the graphic normally used to indicate a figure in motion. If they do indeed represent motion, then it's all good, but if they are meant to represent the rest of the team, I think they would be better if they were thicker and went all the way down to the ground. Of course the TKL doesn't stand for TeamKiteLife, right? It stands for T.K. and Luca.

  19. Hello Jeromeo and welcome to KiteLife! So you are wanting to learn about quadline kites... this is the right place to get some great advice and help. Are you learning to fly a quad now or looking for one to purchase for the first time? Enjoy exploring this website, Segel
  20. Welcome to KiteLife! There are many resources here. How is your kiting experience in Lancashire and what brought you to KiteLife? What kinds of kites do you like to fly? Best Winds, Segel
  21. Hello UrbanFly, Welcome to KiteLife! Where do you hail from? And by your username do you fly in Urban environments frequently? Regards, Segel
  22. Earlier
  23. Referring to the comment upthread about multiple spools and the line becoming too heavy. Many years ago I flew my red delta from the top of a well known "pointy hill" (not really a mountain) called Thorpe Cloud (Dovedale, Derbyshire, UK) and I daisy chained a series of spools and lines. The kite went very high indeed, and a long way down wind, until I reached the stage where the line was angling down from my hand into the valley, then back up to the kite from the next spool.
  24. Thanks to each and all who have replied. I'm away at the moment, with very patchy access to the Internet, so I can't check the resources that have been most recently mentioned. However, on the face of it it looks as if – even though I might have to collect from a few suppliers – I should be able to stock up on replacements for the bits I need. So thank you again. In the meantime, I've brought away with me a new toy, a baby vented iFlite from Karl Longbottom. What a lovely little glider this is! Held on thread from my other half's sewing box, it dances and curtsies in the slightest of breezes.
  25. Hindsight pretty much 20/20 on that lol
  26. If driving, I prefer the chairs originally installed by the vehicle manufacturer, especially if the vehicle is a stick-shift. When flying, I prefer an armless chair, so I don't keep bumping my elbows into the armrests.
  27. Looking good riff! I'd definitely fly that! Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  28. Edmond. I have a 12M and 13M inflatable kites. Not sure if they'll be what you want, but if you want to look at them. We can schedule to meet up after Grand Haven kite fest Sent from my SM-G930V using KiteLife mobile app
  29. Yes, and there are some other quads you may get the chance to fly or purchase, especially some home-made that can use the extra brake because of the bridle setup, or maybe you want to try flying any quad attached upside-down, or with the handles held upside-down. Imagination rocks.
