  1. Kaiju - coming soon!

    @justin2kites You might try using a spare winder if you have any. If not, it would be easy to cut an 8-9 inch length of pvc. Thats what i used to do.

  3. i need to get the batten rods for my 1st big wing!
  4. Handle length

    For myself I will use 13' handles on most days, like a standard setup. If the winds are light (0-5) then I go with 15' handles for more throw. Conversely if the winds are up say 15+ I'll go to the 11' handles giving me a tad more stability, it keeps the kite from getting away from me, allowing for more control. My thoughts anyway. I'm curious to hear thoughts on this.

    Nice one, enjoy!
  7. Adjustable wrist straps

    Awesome! Thanks for the info, and the links.
  8. Adjustable wrist straps

    I'm trying to find wrist straps that would be able to cinch up around my wrists. I have a tendency to hold too loose, and at times the strap just slides right off. If you've ever played on a wii those would be ideal , can't figure out where to find those clips though. Thank you in advance for any info!
  9. Looking for info on a TOTL kite.

    If I remember right, the spinoff was the next in line following the Hawaiian. It offered more precise cornering, and not quite the pull. The frame was the same as the Hawaiian w/out the battens. Originally in fiberglass, but later modified w/graphite. I even had a frame of A2400 carbon rods, it could fly in low winds. Of course thats all relative. In a good breeze say 10-12 plus I used 120' 150-200lb lines. Though more precise than the Hawaiian, it still needed room to work.

    Stunning, not sure I could tame my inputs enough... It would be fun learning to though! Inspiring
  11. Quad Count (they all count)

    @riffclown i do hope you spend more time flying than building. however i have watched with interest (ok i'll admit it sometimes real anticipation) the builds turn out, and i'm never disappointed.
  12. Quad Count (they all count)

    @photomom I know the "hakuhata toru" was a special edition. At the time they came out I was in no position to get one but, I absolutely love the moon dots, think thats what it was... for me, the most beautiful quad I've ever seen. Looking high and low for one, yours is the only one on the list unless I'm missing something.
  13. Quad Count (they all count)
