three of a perfect pair

Finally it got nice enough to go outside and take a few pix.

Just took possession of a vented Aerie Air FX which matches a standard, plus another makes three.

btw for the trio pix I did not install the winglet battens.....

such a great kite,

I sold my AirFx when a coworker's mother asked me for it as a holiday present to her daughter (Amy was interning with my office and having flown several times with me always used that kite whenever given a choice)

filled with power = seamed as a straight line against a curved one, like how a tent would be made, a 3 dimension sail without framing it.  Ken McNeil was super innovative then and still is NOW! 

enjoy, I'm envious for sure!

Yes they sure are amazing kites crafted by an amazing kite maker. I'm an Aerie/BMK fellow for sure. 

Well "if" I ever decide to let one go I'll send a note to you....there ya go folks first dibs go to Paul.....

Or do as I did and use the power of will as that's how I acquired the vented and the white sailed one(s)......both in the last year.... Actually for the vented I was doing research on Air fx venting and came across a couple of pix and realized the venting was pretty daunting. Besides it's a KMac sail. 

No offence to Revs but I've self vented a couple of those....a Sedg 1 and a single panel 2, with most excellent results......
