  2. I've heard of guy's putting full bags of kites to cover all wind ranges. Never heard of anyone having issues with heat damaging kites. Fly on🤙
  3. Hello frob Thank you for responding to my post appreciated, yes WTB but not necessarily that specific kite, just that design aspect in a dragon kite . Like an old White Bird, ITW assured me that they have the very best in quality, and performance, in a dragon their Kirin line of kites, closest you will find to the design of an original White Bird, however only to found out that their line of Kirin dragons have been out of production ? So this has sent me looking again. Any help appreciated
  4. The more you do the easier it will get.. I still hesitate every time right before cutting fabric. and attaching that leading edge. those are still my two catch points..
  5. I managed to find a pro 2.2!! I think I will just fly it as a 2 line for now and watch to see if HQ releases a new batch sometime soon. If they do I would buy one of the new ones. As for learning a quad I like the idea of a foil more than replacing spars. I'm still so new to all of this that I don't know what I don't know but I'm learning. May end up getting a 2.5 just to have one.
  6. Hi! I'm looking for other flyers in the Minneapolis area. Reach out and say hi!
  7. Hi, Thinking about selling some two line kites and hopefully getting another quad. I'm just not sure what I should list them for. These are like new with no more than ten flights between them. I have a bunch of pictures for when I list them but for now I'm only putting up a few. The Quantum was purchased down in Nags Head in 2013 The Micron - I purchase in 2015 I think The Widow - I got around 2016 maybe Any help would be appreciated.

  12. What a nice welcome! Hi all, my name is Phil and I live in Minnesota in the Minneapolis area. I bought my first quad about 5 years ago AND NEVER FLEW IT TILL THIS WEEK! LOL. Probably because I knew I'd be hooked. And I am. Badly. 🤷‍♂️ I find myself starting out of the window at work looking for a breeze every day. I'm slowly discovering how hard and rewarding this sport/art is. Would love to hook up with anyone locally to see what a real flight looks like!

  14. Hello to all. I’m in my mid 50’s and have loved kites since I was a kid. I don’t fly very often but enjoy going out with my son and his family to fly kites. I have several single line kites, a quantum and a hq symphony 1.8. A few years back I was flying powered paragliders so than should count as a really big kite. Hope to learn from others and get back outside more. Denis Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  15. Indeedly....how right you are!! I'm sure a whole slew of us have been lucky in acquiring some nifty flying units that just aren't around or made anymore. Some being cherished more than others....I have some kites that I will not let go even though they may be flown very rarely. Having said that.....never say never. I always said I would never sell my old Moog Minimoog, or a '63 set of Gretsch drums....but I did so there ya go. These were tools of my trade and were looked at a little differently than kites....lol. For example an email addy I have goes kites and drums.....NOT drums and kit

  19. Earlier
  20. New Video of the Kip Landing. Kite is a Shook 135% Started the move a bit higher than usual since it isn't my kite.
  21. Ethereal --lol Since I "was" Flying NIKA on Sunday it made sense to at least grab the rainbow of colors in the sky.

  23. I’m glad to see that the old fashioned blue car (the avatar) has returned here after a long pause. Nice to hear from you again!!
  24. I would probably like the Hugo and Veyron if they weren't too light on the lines. I like some pull so I can feel the kite. Doesn't much matter because there are plenty of kite options in the US and I will probably never see a Hugo or Veyron around.

  26. View Advert ISO: B-Series Pro I am looking for a friend B-Series Pro in the design as John Barresi flies it for example in his video "Great Sand Dunes" from 2014 (see photo). Condition and what kind of sails do not matter. If someone wants to let go of it - another one would be happy :-) I also have here a bad screenshot of a Rev in red/white, which is also still wanted. If anyone happens to have this, please feel free to offer anything. Advertiser Bunduki Vlieger Date
