  1. Windoo1 Wind Meter -- 10/27/2017

    Finally have tie to catch up on forums. I hate 16 hour work days. I'm in.
  2. 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

  5. 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
  6. 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.

  7. 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
  8. Spectra sports solution

    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

    I'm in. Been wanting this one for a long time. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  11. I picked up a solution quad in a kite trade and don't know much about it. It was the prototype and all I got with it was a drawing showing the kites parts. I've had it together and tried to fly it with no success. I've tried rev handles and airbow handles but really have no idea how it's supposed to be set up as far as the bridle. I've seen pics and vids but no real good detail. One pic seems to show the bridle on top of the frame. Anyone know anything about this kite and possibly have the original paperwork?

  12. Reasons for Multiple Kites in Quiver/Arsenal?

    There is also the way you want to fly that day. For example, some days I want the easy floaty feel of my vapor with its super flat and slow axels and pinwheels and sometimes it's my ocius sul or fearless light for the trickier stuff. Some days I want to tell myself I'm going to make my stranger L7 do what I want it to do (pipe dream I know [emoji23]). Other times it being dragged around by my tensor or a stack. The variety keeps things fresh. Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
