  9. Got one thnx! Wanting to buy a used Revolution kite! Eyeing a 1.5 B-series, midvent, 3wrap. Since it's gonna be a first ever quad, I'll also be looking for handles and lines.

Also looking for any 1.5 style rev (Reflex, Classic, vented, etc.) If you're thinking of letting one of your revs go, pm me please! Has to be RTF.
  10. Beach Kiting 2

    I messed up with the audio, still working out the whole editing thing! It was mainly wind noise anyway.
  11. The Community Kite Festival of Huntsville, AL, sponsored by AshaKiranonline.org, will be held at John Hunt Park, Jaycees building and park area, on March 4, 2017 from 11:00 AM to 4:00 PM. I'd like to invite everyone in the area to come out and participate, or just come out and watch. There will be food and entertainment, and it is a free event. (Entertainment will include watching some old, fat dude attempting to fly a kite for the first time in over 30 years.) facebook.com/communitykitefestival

  13. Hey guys! Me again!I'm here on behalf of a Mechanical Engineering Project that requires a mechanism to be built that will launch a kite in low winds so that it will be shot up to 50m where the better winds are. I'm back with another few questions to ask all of you. Any help is appreciated!1. How do you normally launch your kites? Besides tugging and running backwards?2. Were there any methods that didn't work? Why?3. At what speed do you consider low winds? How fast must the wind be to lift a kite?4. What's the weight of your kite along with the photography rigging?5. What types of kite do you use? What are their specs? What winds do they fly in? How heavy can the lift?6. What type of cameras do you use?7. What has been the smallest and largest kites/payloads you have used?8. Do you KAP on land or at sea? Which do you prefer?9. How much would a full set be? Kite and rigging included?10. Have you ever used methods that involved an energy source? Batteries etc.11. Do you fly on your own or with a group? Thanks again! Jason
  14. Hey guys! My name is Jason and I'm currently in my 3rd year of Mechanical Engineering. I have an on-going project at the moment. The design brief is this:"There are many applications for airbourne devices including kite aerial photography or kite fishing. A major challenge is providing the necessary initial lift for systems which may have additional weight to reach height with constant winds (>50m). The objective of this project is to design a low cost, low weight, low power system which can provide the necessary initial lift in the absence of wind on the ground." My questions to anyone reading this is, What are your needs when it comes to initial lift? How do you cope with low winds? If there was such a system to launch it to 50m, what requirements would you like it to have? Thanks guys! Jason.
  15. Here are kite photos that taken by fly-cam. They are "Dieu Sao", a Vietnamese traditional flute kite. Together with "Ao Dai", "Dieu Sao" is a word that not translated into English... Dieu Sao Bay (See more at DieuSao.Com)

  18. Karma Quantum 7/12/2016

    I have a nice quantum for drawing this time around . No lines or bag will be included. This drawing will end on at 7pm PST 7/12/2016 It will be drawn via RNG If you are a KiteLife forum member from the US or Canada, you are eligible to enter. You do not have to be a paid subscriber. Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize. Here is the link to the original Rules and Guidelines thread: http://kitelife.com/forum/topic/5426-rules-and-guidelines-please-read/ The mechanism for the drawing itself is entirely at the discretion of the person offering the prize. In the past, entry number has been determined either by order of entry or by the post number in which the member declares entry into the drawing. The drawings have been performed using the RNG method (http://www.random.org/sequences/) or by choosing the numbers out of a hat. The only requirement is that the method of selection is clearly spelled out in the drawing post. Entry into the drawings is done by STARTING a post in the drawing thread with the entry phrase chosen by the drawing host (Traditionally "I'm in", but "I LIKE" has been used as well). In order to remove any confusion or misinterpretation, only entries with posts that START with the phrase will be considered. As with all other KiteLife drawings, bantering is encouraged. This is for fun after all.

  20. Mid-Vent Day

    Flew my Rev B-Pro mid-vent today. https://www.flickr.com/gp/basicbill/6536H8 Bill
  21. Simple question. What kite festivals are on your list to attend? Are you going to just watch or fly? Even compete? SLK's, stunters, quads, freestyle, precision or a little of everything? Do you piggy back festivals that are close both geographically and time wise?
  22. I have an unused 60" blue/gray Into The Wind kite bag that I purchased with the intent of using but never did. Would just like $30 + $6 shipping in the US.
  23. Researcher in Anthropology

    Hello everyone, My name is Rita and I'm studying anthropology. I'm writing a paper on technics and I picked kiting. I don't want to bother your community on this forum but would be extremely thankful if some of you could tell me why you started flying, how did you come to it at the first place and what does it mean to you now ? I find this utterly beautiful that humans persist kiting for centuries. Do you all link flying a kite with flying ? Thank you for your time and good flights Rita
