  10. Wow! But the chart is missing the wind values from the moment you decide to go flying and pack your stuff in the car. During this period the wind is "silky smooth". As soon as you get out of the car and stand on the field, your neighbour's chart is correct.
  11. Hello PDF, I know this is a longshot but the advertisement does not seem to be cancelled or expired. Is the kite still available? Thanks John

  14. 🙂😄, I couldn’t help smiling at this childhood prank. (OK, since all kite pilots are very visible ambassadors I probably shouldn't appreciate this…). Naah…, get some spare spars, repair tape and a bottle of CA-glue. You can only fully learn by doing. How to know where the limit is if you don’t crack something occasionally? You seem to be relaxed interacting with the public. I always see that as a bonus (except once when a very drunk person stayed for far too long with “non-brilliant” questions). Allow yourself to fail in public (if you don't do so already) so your progress rate isn’t reduced. Good luck learning!!!

  16. We still have a Classifieds section for just such inquiries Images are not required..And there's no charge..
  17. Thanks Gammoray, I set it up with the spar next to the sail. Not an problem that it's not a Gomberg, it was free and it works. Looks like a decent copy.
  18. The helix spinner given to me by my local kite shop, not sure if it's a Gomberg or a decent copy. The SLK is my ITW Delta Conyne 20210724_144653_1.mp4
  19. Don't remember the kite, but definitly had the rubber band plane.
  20. I've tried to build this kite 3 times - the first 2 times, I crashed them "fatally" before I was able to get bridle and tail adjusted. The 3rd time worked!
  21. We may be traveling to the Big Island and staying on the North West coast near Hapuna Beach. Is it worth packing my dual-liners? I honestly don’t know if there are places to fly, or what to expect in terms of wind. I read a VERY old thread somewhere else that mentioned that kites aren’t allowed on beaches there. I don’t know if that’s still the case?

  28. New to SLK as well, I happen to see the storm force anchor system on line before I saw this post. I have anchored to the hitch on my Jeep a couple of times but thought it was worth a try. I decided to make it myself with 2" aluminum angle, I bought a 1/4 inch U bolt and 12 galvanized spikes (the one that comes with the storm force are 13"). I made it 14" long and drilled 5 holes opposite the anchor point and additional 2 on the anchor side if needed. I was out this past weekend and the winds were 9-10 mph, I put up a Power sled 24 with a couple of Tails. The pull was easy enough to hold with on hand on the yo-yo, I had already set the anchor so just clip in and sat back and let it do its thing. After about an hour of fiddling with other stuff I brought the sled in packed it up and did a final check on the anchor, it was still solid on the ground. I was so pleased with it I made two more when I got into work this morning.
  29. 65 is fine. If you prefer, it can be shortened. Long line, 120', would be fine too, and slow it down a bit and give you a much larger window to fly in. If you can afford it, get both, or a bulk spool to tie your own and save money. 50# is sufficient for a Rev II; it just doesn't pull that hard, and in lighter wind it will have trouble getting the extra weight of 90# line off the ground and its speed will be dramatically reduced.
