  1. Ash Frame Recommendations

    I been flying the Ash with P100 and I have found them fine from to low wind "we should just stop" to "we are a bit overpowered should we just go stright to mid-vent". I must admit I played alot more with different rod in my B's then I have in the Pro's. Just found I haven't need to. Sent from my SM-N920I using KiteLife mobile app
  2. Quad line rev Vs other

    With out seeing it first hand, I would say No-ish. The flying lines are unknown and more than likely will have more stretch than LPG so will give a spongy feel to the flying experience. The control would be more like driving a dodgem car, it will get there after a few bangs. I gave my SLE, which has seen a lot of action, on the 80 foot line, that are now 70foot due to breaks, to a guy to fly. He had flown a HQ Mojo before but was amazed how the SLE was more precise in its control. So to sum up. It would fly.…not as nice.
  3. Suggestions on Finding Indoor Places

    The hall built for the schools under the Australian government nation building program are meant to be available to local club and Community groups. May be join/start a kite club and approach the local schools in the area.

  8. Coming over to "the DARK side" ?

    I got the one rev in my bag, a SLE 1.5 for the day it blowing to had for freestyle with a dualies. But all that may change with the news IQuad is coming down under. A training session before the Redcliffe Kite Festival need a better Rev than a SLE. I could go a Barresi vented. I starting my saving now.

  11. A True "Newbie"

    Hi dpod. Welcome. I started off with the Nexus a bit less than 12 month ago. I got use to flying in all condition, light wind to heavy winds where the leading edge starts to flap like chicken when flying across the window. Once I could keep in the air I started to try and do some tricks. One it can do is a back flip and a lazy susan with a bit of luck. I could get an ugly axle out of it to but not much more. It didn't stop me trying though. The next kite was the 4D for when the wind is a bit to light. I than move on the a Sliverfox 2.3. The first thing I notice was the pull. It wasnt drag across the park type, but a big step up. The other was the twitchy ness of it. I was always over steering it for the first few sessions. The main thing is tricks can start to be done on the a better kite. I been flying it for a few months now and it's good fun trying to learn all the tricks. But if you can find some one to learn off it speed things up a lot.
  12. SDT 2.8 Power Kite (5/1/12)

    Thanks Baloo, twice now you have cheered on my number but I don't think that it will sway the RNG your way. The RNG is single minded and only look for one thing. The numbers!!! So here they are 880 880 880 960? 833? 880
  13. SDT 2.8 Power Kite (5/1/12)

    I have been trying the silent treatment with RNG and it hasn't been the successful, so, COME IN 880! I had one go on a power kite and its about time to get dragged around the park again. RNG it time to pick 880!
