Okay! This is a dual line kite that I could enjoy. I'm sure Susan and Dave would want me to have it John ... just have a private talk with the RNG.

Cheers,

Tom

This is great John. It's a dual line I could set up, put on auto pilot and do all sorts of tricks.

I have been trying to do this on Lam's kites but it never works kid_cussing.gif

Wow, looks real cool. ;)

Sorry I meant, huh, don't suppose I will win this one either. :P

See, I am trying to make out that I don't care again, just to fool the RNG. Clever, don't you think?

This looks awesome!

Thanks for all the great resources John! Whilst watching youtube I fell in love with Revolution Kites whilst watching your stuff, and I knew I had to turn to the "dark side". I'm almost sure I'm getting a B-Series for my birthday in January, but will just have to wait and see w00t.gif

Well this is my first post...maybe the RNG will favour me??? tongue.gif

Look up in the sky, its a kite, no its a plane, no its a plane kite that should be seeing the nice Oregon and Washington coast with me as the proud owner.

Its for the moments when you put down the handles or straps and kick back with a cold beer and ...........

Wow, I won! Awesome ;)

Guess it's time for me to come out of my shell and say hi to everyone instead of quietly browsing the forums. And thanks, John, for all the great resources on this website and more importantly for the prize!

Alright, it took a while, but I finally got someone to help me out with this, and got some pictures too. So for those of you who were giving me a hard time in that other thread, I hope you are satisfied now. ;) It was pretty awesome when we got it up. And almost from the get-go there were these 3 little boys who were extremely excited about it. They wouldn't leave until the wind died down enough that we couldn't easily relaunch. Once again, thank you Kitelife.

(And yes, the grass is very dry at the Berkeley marina this year, for anyone who's wondering.)

Yeah! that's neat. Get 'em hooked when they're young. The best part is when you hook 'em when they're older they become young.

WOW - super bonus this weekend...

Not only did we see Joanna (winner of the airplane kite), not only was she friendly and passionate about kites...

She also jumped into some 4-person team with some of us "pros" and she kicked BUTT.

Really, I don't often see someone digest and adapt to our team maneuvers so quickly.

Truly impressive, great work Joanna - you're welcome on my team line anytime. :)

Thanks for the compliment, John. I'd love to fly on your team line again. Thanks for getting me started on team flying. I sure learned a lot, and it's super fun too. :D
