  1. i will build and trow in 2 stakes. Glass marble 50 mm(1,96 inch) with 12 inch steel rod. winner will pick 2 from this three colors
  2. Brand new (open just for pictures ) 3 Meters Quad Power kite RTF, 15" handles,80' lines ( twisted lines,i recommend to be changed). A nice and fun no name kite very well build. Read the rules below, reply with "I'm in" to enter! Let's roll ! Standard Karma Note from the Moderators This is a Karma Drawing. The winner of the drawing is expected to pay it forward by offering their own prize for the next drawing. Please do not enter unless you are willing to offer your own prize, preferably not the prize you just won. Drawings should be open for entry approximately 2 weeks, and the next drawing should be posted as soon as possible to keep the Karma rolling. These drawings are run by and for KiteLife forum members and DO NOT require a paid subscription to enter. The moderating team only ensures that your drawing post contains all of the pertinent information (drawing date/time, adequate prize description, drawing rules) before approval. If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/ The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat (I believe an adorable daughter did the picking in that scenario). The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post. Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.
  3. thank you Mark
  4. now will be fun
  5. yep, especially if the the wind is strong enough to make the Quantum to hum
  6. I'm in ! let the fun begin
  7. mi wife love to have a 75 fits tube tail on Quantum
  8. try to connect with flyers from your area, make time to go at festivals to see live movements feeling the wind on the same time.more experienced flyers will direct you and show you ways of do things without reserve. flying alone is not a competition with videos or demos you see at one point must be a pleasure and an ambition to achieve what you see on them without to damage the kite. accidents happen but try to do not cause them
  9. nice,you catch some moves IMO you have led hands (analogy to led feet from driving). at couple of launches you give to the kite at least 150-200 LBS long input moving your hands from front to back extremely fast. on top of that with the kite on the ground you also pull hard the lines for recovery and put the kite in launch position like you do not care about the kite. look like abusing the kite and this is on to a day with a light to medium breeze when Quantum is not have any chance to fight back.remember is a kite for 3 MPH and is starting to feel good and react in 5 MPH in hard winds all the hard inputs you give will find at the end of the lines a powerful big kite trying to obey but also resist to you and that almost for sure is the problem with the T connection. be gentle, kite is your partner, think is a woman,be firm but gentile on the same time.after the kite is up and have some speed and is flying you may be more aggressive on the inputs because is having the space to react on all directions. is mi opinion from what i see in this last video,is not a criticize to your stile,is just mi opinion.i am a mach more soft with mi kites
  10. GO GO GO and consider what Paul is say,is having experience and wisdom.i hope to meet him at one festival at one moment to.
  11. check if that tube in connection is glued or you may moved in/out hard. if you may move that you are OK if not on hard winds the frame is on danger
  12. i found this if is helping Ref: Vivitar "906" "wearable" camera 906 Item has ZERO IMAGE STABILIZATION. Slightest movement blurs video. Overall video quality is horrendous. Didn't bother testing photo capability, because bad video makes this camera an immediate return item, and that has been accomplished. There is a similiar Vivitar "936" with WIFI which has been discontinued.
  13. the frame is a SLE 4 wraps LE and 4 wraps spars.
  14. I thought at the stress on spars and you are right Wayne. now seeing black on white seams to be a bad idea especially do the big surface of the kite.
  15. i have a spool of 150# so will not be a problem to make some bridle and test them, i have full thrust on your skills and judgement Mark so i am on. Till then i will also try JB method for indoor ,no bridle at all. i will keep tided just the spars points and see what is happening
