  3. I haven't been flying much. Life has been getting in the way but I did get out last night. Just flew for fun, with a long tail on the kite. Only had to share the field with one other flyer. I didn't get a chance to meet him, but he was very good, doing a lot of slack line tricks. As I was packing up an elderly lady stopped and said how much she enjoyed watching me fly, and that maybe I should help the other gentleman as he couldn't even keep his kite right side up.

  4. Hey, just came here to introduce myself and noticed this neat little feature. Living in northeast Georgia I don't always get a chance to fly due to the lack of wind but the days the wind blows you can almost always catch me in the field flying my Quantum (thanks Andy @ Ocean Shores Kites!) or my Snapshots (1.2 and 2.5). I'm exploring the market for UL and SUL kites so I can find my flying time. I enjoy flying with my wife and our young son. When I'm doing adult things I teach high school and coach the wrestling and golf teams. I've done a lot of creeping around the site and have learned a lot. I look forward to continuing to learn.
  5. But the ceiling helps mitigate the hazard.. I know the regulations being discussed for drones had the 5 Mile figure attached to it.. That's where I was basing my comment.

  11. Thread count and Density are measures commonly associated with COTTON bedsheets, pillowcases etc.. Ripstop Nylon & Icarex are two different things. Icarex is a ripstop Polyester.. Ripstop Nylon will absorb water and will get very heavy when wet. You also have to let it dry flat or it will stretch and deform. Ripstop Poly you can fly it dry for the most part. Kitemaking materials are sold by weight and not by thread count.. If I'm not mistaken it's like 3/4oz = 3/4oz per Square Meter..
  12. Right - I completely understand. Maybe I can make it next time :-)

  15. For those that like a more "active" glider - the Urban Ninja is pretty hot. Open plans to make them yourself or if you know someone that will make one. Kind of a mix of fighter and glider, you have to fly it all the time. No "set and forget" kite !
  16. Oh, yeah. If you ever get the chance to try 240's, do it. It's like the whole world got put on slo-mo. You give the kite some input, and it thinks about it for a minute, and then responds. Weird and fascinating. Side slides become a week-long event.

  18. That was a nice one. A kite I wouldn't mind having around. Congrats!
  19. Moving on lessons learned, I've decided to finish out this particular run of kites with the second full sail as clost to this one as possible.. if it works better, I may actually rig this one permanently for lights and night flying.. As several friends have found out recently. Night Flying is an absolute blast.
  20. Yeah, the right kite for current conditions = priceless!
  21. I also have used the "magic sticks", got them in kit form from the Shook's at Flying Smiles Kites. Stiffened the frame up even more, plus made "flipping a wing" impossible to do. The truss lines won't allow the kite to do that! Also why they get called "sissy sticks", you can let the truss works prevent it, or learn better control without them! LOL!!
  22. Thanks for the video share, I did see lam's famous diamond shaped slide in there, still comfortable for him although not like his rev flights in visual crispness
  23. Conversion Time lapse..
