    • Hello, I try to fly most I can but I agree with you sometimes I don't have so much time I would because of higher priority stuff. But.... when I put flying on the top list I always find time.

    • You might be a Kite Nut if you take early retirement because your job is cutting into your flying time.

      No Matter Where You Go, There You Are.

    • You might be a Kite Nut when you check “Windfinder” every day to find a 1 hr window that is flyable in your area.  Spokane WA has very sporadic wind for kite flying.  Last Saturday it rained all day, as predicted in the news. According to Windfinder it was supposed to be very windy and rainy, but at 3:00 PM the rain was supposed to stop and the wind was supposed continue to be strong; too strong it turns out.  I was out running errands that day, with my kite bag in the car and at 2:45 headed to the field.  3:00, sun came out, wind was there, and I had about an hour of flight time before my kite broke.  And the rain started again. Some would think   but instead I felt I was able to practice some things that I have been waiting to improve on all winter, waiting on some proper wind to do so… Worth breaking a kite for. My kite breaking revealed a weakness in the design that allowed me to create an improvement to keep it from happening again.  Also worth breaking a kite for. I am now fixing my kite using “Go-Cart” drive chain parts, Dacron, and a banana to do so. After all, I am a Kite Nut (ok, not a banana, but the rest is true).  I hope to share this experience with you all in another post when my repair is complete. SF
    • Im going to the kite fest and I'd like to have a fresh quad kite for the occasion. I am trying to decide which one. Rev B or Polo 42p? Phoenix? Which vent? Zen? Handle length? I have 2 rev2's and a Freilein Vertigo std. LPG 120', 30', and 20' linesets.   I spend most of my time flying Urban short line and dont fly with others other than the occasional IKE open fly days.   Just looking for some suggestions.   Thanks, Sean/Deke     Sent from my SM-G930V using KiteLife mobile app    
    • By the time I got the box of caps unpacked and had it bridled up, the predicted wind was not cooperating.. i did manage to get a few snap in the air outside  but this was close to and under trees.  I took a few secs of footage but haven't really looked at it yet. I think this is easily a 10-15mph wind kite. Green Race LE and CF Arrow shafts for vertical spar.. Video soon weather permitting..
