  3. Image? You might be right about it having come from an impact. It also commonly means you've been flying in strong winds. It's tough to know or guess at the cause without an image. They're just a hole melted into a bit of reinforced fabric. The bungee should also have a washer on top, and much like a button caught on a button hole, even if the hole rips/stretches a bit and turns into a long hole, the washer should prevent it from sliding through. You can cover it up like you described to reinforce it and melt a new hole, and that doesn't need to be the same material. Any light and strong fabric that you can secure to it can work, with Mylar, Dacron, and Kevlar all being commonly used strong fabrics. Glue and stitching both work. Reinforcements can help but probably aren't strictly necessary if the fabric is otherwise intact.

  11. When kite piloting occupies your mind outside the field between the sessions. After the session: What do I want to continue with the next session? Any insights that should be remembered? Did I miss rehearsing anything that has not been practiced in a while? Between/before sessions: Watch videos and read forum posts - is there a new move/sequence/style that one can attempt to borrow? Sometimes figure on hand movements, both on things that you can do and want to learn. Are there similarities/differences between different moves that can be used to vary the moves? Is there a new sequence that can prevent one from pŕacticing "only" the std things in the ordinary way?
  12. View Advert Lifters, pilots or Foils I was curious if anyone had any lifter, pilot kites and or large foils. Preferably whales, sharks, dragons or anything ocean related. I'm interested in doing displays for events and or charities Thanks in advance, Jeff Advertiser Jeff Skelton Date 07/25/2022 Price $123 Category Kites (Single Line) Brand Model  
  13. I just joined as well. I am waiting for my 1st Djinn ST to be sent to me but this Cool VT would go real well in my kite bag!

  15. By caribeener on a short tether line maybe?

  18. Each you've described has places you can latch onto from behind. I'd go with the 3-point method attaching wherever needed with a simple knot you can remove if/when you want to go fly it. A single hanging line could flop around or wildly twist every time there was motion in the room from an open door, an HVAC vent, or someone walking by.
  19. Assuming you're attaching them frame to frame, sure you can attach them. No telling how it will affect flight dynamics, though. Assuming it's relatively similar in shape and size, it probably won't throw things off too much.
  20. They come/came from Dave at the Kite Connection shop. I had a few of his “shop customs” over the years. One was in these colours but vented....long gone now. Check with him and he may be able to help. I was perusing the site and the ones he has now are NYM in the colour scheme. The B ones are probably long gone but ya never know...as he has found kites tucked away...;) bt
  21. Stick to it. It doesn't seem like you are getting anywhere till near the end. A good put together kite will last a long time unless I get a hold of it. Error on getting little stronger spare if weight isn't a big issue. Let us know and send pictures! Michael
  22. Had a hot tub delivered and they could not use the truck Crain so the used an inflatable bladder to lift 500 lb up 5 feet. It worked great. I noticed a couple repairs with tape and they used Flex Seal Tape which has some stretch to it and they love it. They tried Gorrila Tape also but with out some stretch don't work. Might give it a try. Ace Hardware sells Flex Seal products around here. Worth a try? Michael
