  1. Kaiju - coming soon!

    Looks like a promising alternative to the now unobtanium Itrix. Would love to play around with one. How is it for relaxed, more floaty, graceful style flying or did you specifically go for a kite to compliment the tricky aggressive style? Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

  6. Break down in mesh panels.

    All depends on which mesh and how bad the holes or tears are. I've done everything from a baseball stitch along the tear to the screen patch you can get at Home Depot to full panel and LE mesh replacement. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

  9. Spectra sports solution

    That's a possibility. I can't find specs so I don't know what the wind range is. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  10. Spectra sports solution

    No but you may be on to something. Being the prototype there are probably changes that went into the production model that I need to make. What happens when t tries to collapse is the LE bow rods bend up and down between the center t and outer verticals allowing the wing to fold. If only one bow rods bends I get a bow tie like effect. If I go by the video close ups, it looks like the standoffs are 90* to the spine and le. Mine isn't so my center le tie line might be too long. It's a place to start.

  11. Spectra sports solution

    Yea I know most of those rev flyers and fly with em once in a while. It's hard to say what's wrong. I did find some loose stops and fixed those. It's framed in Easton carbon AFC so it has a lot of flex. The top and bottom bridles are 3 point linking to the center and outer verticals. There is no vertical link line tying the tow points of the top and bottom like on a rev. It does two things in flight I can't figure out that should be bridle related. First is it will try and collapse one side of the kite pulling the outer vertical to the center. Second is akin to the rev bow tie. I can't figure out if the bridle is supposed to go outside the frame to hel P support the frame or not Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

    it is a symmetrical quad. The top and bottom bow rods are linked at the center with a link line to keep them in place that's separate from the bridle. I'm in central Cali. Usually fly out at mistlin sports park in ripon. That is who designed it Jon. I'll have to try and find someone in that club that might know more. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
