Looks great Ant. How long did it take you to set it up.

What is the concept behind the sticks? I know it's been discussed here in the past so if someone wants to give me the link to the convesation, that would be OK.

Or, we could just revisit it again here.

Great job....

well im not 100% sure but after a test fly in 3 mph winds i did see a diffrence in the kite peformance . it floated real nice and is more responseive i might try and go with a lighter spar but for now its doing pretty well the other thing i like is that the kite can rest on the sticks when not in flight i didnt need a stake to secure it

Miller lite presents real men of genius. Today we salute you Mr Quad Stick flyer man... while everyone else's kites are knocked over in the sand yours sits proudly on its quad sticks waiting for that little gust of wind... many a days other kites just won't sit without a stake, yours is anxiouly waiting... so when the winds not blowing pop open a nice cold miller lite Mr multi line quad stick flyer man because when your hands arent full of quad handles they are holding a miller lite

LOL, love the can of beer on the kite construction table! :blue-grin:

One of these days I'm either going to find my missing 1.5 sticks bridle or I'm going to tie one up myself again. I only flew with it on for a week or so, thus I don't remember much about the difference so it'd be fun to relook at it.

There just isn't enough hours in the day lately. :blue-grin:

Kinda like dancing before we were married and were hanging out at the clubs or bars.

So what would the kite comparison to "beer goggles" be????

its more fun to fly with beer googles .. makes it a challenge not to beat up your kite with your drunken mistakes

Is that you wearing the goggles or me wearing 'em :kid_devlish:

I should add that all the women are above average, too :innocent:

That should start some hate mail :devil:

For maximum effect, everyone should wear beer goggles and 3D glasses.

It certainly helps me when flying with your ugly mugs.

Remember that movie with Jackie Chan... I think it was called Drunken Master??? Might be a new routine for you... you could fall down and talk smart while flying your kite in perfect control. ;) For music you could sing 99 bottles of beer on the wall, or not.

Might be more fun than Wolfman.

:kid_drool:

Vodka, Whiskey, Tequila, beer dark or light. =single line(we can have a posh drink. Got a spare hand, sometimes 2, so we don't spill) :w00t:

Dual and quad lines always have a ground stake and a wind meter.

Single line flyers always have a bottle opener and if they are really serrious...ice :blue-cool: !

At the end of the day we all have one thing in common.

The bar.

Apart from you Iquad sissy's who failed beer 101 at Lincoln City!!!! ("oh! I need my hot tub")

Luckily you can always re-sit the exam.

Life is full of constant tests! Damn, Damn,damn those exams. I must study harder.
