  2. All of the above - universal use. Should be fairly clear and legible even when shrunk down to 2" wide, or normal shirt back size viewed at some distance. No gradients, solid colors only - keeps things simpler all around and will work better on pins. Good question.

  4. After putting it in the air on a Kite, I have to agree that it doesn't respond well to movement but as a head or static mounted camera, it does pretty well..
  5. Thanks, 10-15mph seems to suit it pretty well.. As for the selfie, that was kind of the point.
  6. "You may say I'm a dreamer...", but what I really prefer is that there would be some "abroad" (depends on perspective) kite clinic like event somewhere with a new set of people that would share their experiences, what they learned, what set of people (and how) they managed to gather for the event (shared joy is often more fun)... I'm not into gambling, so these tickets are the first of any kind that I've bought in about 30 years. OK, the rate of sold tickets might have been a bit low and this therefore might end up as a kite drawing. Even if it did, I'd much like to hear about the experiences with the new kite(dual/quad?)/gear prize after a few months of use.
  7. I have a very similar one that I made about six years ago. Mine also loves to move sideways, but not so much up and down. So I attached the top lines to the left side and called that the top. Flies fine in that orientation, but very fast -- needs constant attention so it won't crash. Very squirrely.

  10. Very good speech: life lesson in patience. The kite flier is like the sailor, you can choose the best sail for the wind but the weather always have the last word. Thierry Bressure

  13. I recommend a full-vent as your next kite. It will give you the ability to fly when the wind is anywhere between 4 and 25 mph, taking into account the kites you already have. Which design is up to you. I lean towards the B for everyday use. The Polo would be fine, but it costs more. If you have the bankroll, go for it. Some would argue that a mid-vent should be what you get. If you plan to just sit and watch when the wind is very strong, then get that. Otherwise, the full-vent will give you a broader range to fly in, and will help to improve your flying skills more quickly when you use it in that "gray" area where the mid-vent would be ideal. After you have a standard sail and a full-vent you can consider a mid, or a light wind kite like the Zen. You can try mine when we see each other on the field. Light-wind flying is a completely different, and sometimes very frustrating ballgame, until you totally master the basic skills and can use the sail more efficiently with maximum brake in the line settings. Handle length for outdoor Rev-like kites is 11, 13, or 15 inches, depending on kite and conditions. 13" and 15" are the ones used most often. 11" are used when you want to decrease input to absolute minimum, for instance, 40-mph wind or extreme precision in normal wind, or when flying a quad with an extremely stiff frame to keep it from sliding out of the sky as easily. Now that the weather is beginning to get a bit better, I should be out flying once it's in the 60's regularly. We can get together and you can try some of my kites, or others if the other guys join us, before you drop any change on your next kite. My phone number is 224.227.0638 -- put in in your contact list. Call me anytime, except at 3:00 am.

  19. Hi all, I’m looking for a Tandem from Azur cerf-volant in a very good condition. Let me know please if you have one for sale in your cellar. Thanks in advance.

  24. I have one will trade for an Eclipse? Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  25. Sleeving kits are essential to routine line maintenance and repair but sometimes you want to fix it very quickly and finish you day of flying. E.S.K. takes only a few minutes to make in advance and can be applied in the field in about 1 minute. Equalize and enjoy the rest of your day. For some that do not sleeve lines this will almost be a joke but I prefer to have my lines sleeved, especially for my power kites and stacks.. I keep 8-10 of these in my trouble bag all the time so I can sleeve a full quad set in the field if needed.. It's still a good idea to keep a sleeving kit with you but the E.S.K. can save you a few minutes of downtime on a great day of flying.. Excellent donor materials are bridle line, Q-Line, Venetian mini blind cord.. You can also use this concept to pull loops of line through regular sleeving or cord like Muzzy Bowfishing line to have the colors you want ready and handy. Cut about 13" of the cord. Push out a small nib of core and tie an overhand knot. Go to the other end and push out about 2" of core. Tie it off and separate the core to preserve only one of the twisted components and discard the rest. Place an overhand knot in the remaining core strands. This will become your pull eye.. To implement in the field.. Untie the "pull eye" end and run your line through the strands.. Untie the other nib end and use the core to pull the kite line through your new sleeve..
  26. Was practicing some stuff yesterday and thought of another thing. Give the "trick" time to happen. Don't rush it. Let the rotations/roll ups happen. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  27. Welcome bt! Good to see you here on KiteLife. I bought a blue & yellow Rev 1 sail only from you back in 2015 I believe. It is now a valued kite in my Rev hoard down in the Kite Dungeon. Thanks again, SHBKF (also known as Dayhiker elsewhere)
