    Thanks Bbailey - doesnt change the sentiment! I actually had forgotten my forum name and was looking it up for the 81! Good winds! 8)

  3. B-Series Mid-Vent Package (7/18/12)

    While of course I would be happy for any of our kite brethren to win this fab kite....I will plug 955 one more time and hold my breath!

    Really RNG, I haven't forgotten you - I've been dreaming about this kite! (But I would gladly let any "old timers" fly it if I do win! )

  8. Hey Quad Heads! Looking for help please!

    Thanks agin everybody - I'll report back when I've got her fixed!
  9. Hey Quad Heads! Looking for help please!

    Thank you very much Jeepster and Pete, I appreciate the advice and will take it and any more anyone wants to dish out! I will try anything to get the old gal flying again, including custom making the leading edge spar if I have to! You guys are awesome for sharing the knowledge you have!
  10. Hey Quad Heads! Looking for help please!

    Hey Baloo! Thanks for the interest! I am in the Tri Cities on the Eastern side of Washington so no kite stores at all! I tried the local hobby store, but they don't have anything that would work...(they did suggest a glue and tape workaround and I am trying that now) i was thinking of getting carbon rods and some ferrule and making my own - the real prob is the measuring - like the Kite shoppe has all kinds of rods, but tapered,inner vs outer diameters and will it fit in the center fitting on the kite - I am having a hard time telling without an actual rod to see if it fits! I have sent inquiries to The Kite Shoppe and to New Tech Kites who manufactured the original Steve Laporte designed kite - hopefully I will hear from them soon!
  11. Hey guys! I managed to stay out in wind a little stronger than I should have for my old Spirit Quad line kite. It was a sad thing to see her fold up in the sky and flutter to the ground like that, and I am determined that she will fly again! But....I need help - I can't find a supply for them (the spars or rods) already made, so I am going to have to make it myself and I am unsure as to the best way to proceed. The spar (or rod) was a 3 piece with a total length of 79" (200.66 cm) and the dia is 5/16' (.312" or .79375cm). This might be part of my prob - I am not even sure I am measuring this properly, having never done this before. Listen - ANY advice at all from you guys would be greatly appreciated and humbly recieved........you would be helping a great kite get back into the sky Thanks in advance, Ed I have attached a pic of her in flight for inspiration!

    Um....how do you know what subscriber number you are? And do you have to have that to be entered? (I really do want to know, and a little part of me is hoping for "beginners luck") 8)
