    Still playing with colorizer

    I had a love hate relationship with the colourizer when I was working on a B Pro set. Fell back in love doing my Djinns though. Sent from my SM-G950F using KiteLife mobile app

    Nose Landing

    I am going out on a limb and say it might be similar to a pancake landing followed by a belly launch. But that does not answer the hover question.

    Pro Kites USA?

    Hi FreePistol, I just saw this thread and wanted to personally apologize for the delay with this order. We ran out of the specific color you ordered and had to bring more in stock. By the time the shipment arrived we had some planned warehouse changes, which further delayed the order. I sincerely apologize for this perfect storm of delays. Upon checking into the order I do see that the kite was delivered and I hope you are enjoying it! Please let me know if you have any issues and if there is anything I can help you with please let me know! Thanks Brendan Pro Kite USA

    Karma - Delta Hawk - Black/Red - 8/24/18

    Probably more of a 51/49 in my favor. Beings how I'm not self centered or the like but there's no one in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD that needs that kite more than me. I'm sure the rng knows and understands. The black models are a little narrower at the wing tips and nose. They're 58" and the newer rainbow is 57". So I've read.I prefer the black and red. Surely that ups it to 52/48.

    Premier Wolf or Widow for 2nd Kite

    Spin that kite up and zoom close as you can to the ground in 20 mph winds. You will gain some control skills for sure. Some days when winds are 15+ I still grab my 1.4 and go bombing around for a bit. Always will. Dang it man now I'm thinking about getting a bigger foil.

    Started a colorizer for my Diamonds.. Will be pretty rudimentary compared to the Djinn work from Watty. A quick sample of some of the pre-art going in place for this..

    Action Camera

    Took awhile but after much deliberation camera is on it's way. Didn't want to go over $100.00 and the research was tedious at best. Not that into electronics. Cost was at the top at$100.44. Includes shipping and a 32 gb card. Aluminum chassis,6 axis gyro, 4k at 60 fps(not interpolated),1080p at 120 fps, 720 at 240 fps. 20 mp photos. Not all all the bells and whistles of a Go Pro 6 but with the newest chip technology should compete really well at this price point. Does not come with a ton of accessories I'd never use either. 1/4 female built in for a tripod. Never had anything like this before. Hopefully I'm not one of the first suckers for this new stuff. If I guessed right by Christmas 2019 Go Pros will be 1/2 what they are now.

    Looking for someone to fly with in NY!

    Welcome to the forum. There's a couple of guys in NYC very near you and a whole lot scattered up and down the east coast. Hang tight. They'll chime in soon. I'm sure they're out flying over the weekend.

    B-Series VTD package (9/25/18)

    Didn't notice the lines. That's okay, I've got plenty of line sets in my bag. I knew the kite would work wonderfully in my bag. Here's hoping for the win.

  22. I don't mind modifying the E2, I am not going to get rid of it anyway. I went to Prism the other day, and they punched a few holes in it for me in the area I wanted. They said to do it in the reinforced area, and do it in between the trailing edge zig zag threads. I am going to be at the beach in Newport Oregon for a few days flying next week, and Keith at The Kite Company there has the Skydog Thunderstruck, and Freebird in stock. I might buy one just to have. He thinks they would be a good choice for what I am trying to do with it also. I would like to know if it is capable of doing sharp turns and squares or not.

    Hello from Ontario, Canada!

    Hi, and welcome to the forum. Ontario is my favorite province. Spent lots of time in my youth west of Thunder Bay in the Shebandowan area, fishing of course, with a bit of water skiing thrown in. If you have any questions about any aspect of kiting, this forum is the right place to be. You're going to love dual-line kites and what they can do, and maybe even get into quad-lines someday. It's a journey that will make you smile.

    Welcome MineshP

    Hi everyone,We've had a great summer in Ontario this year so far - earlier in the year I rekindled my love of kites and gotten my kids into it as well. Recently got into 2 line stunt kite - been challenging so far to get more than 1 minute of flight time - we have lots of hot days, but not many breezy days to let the wings soar!Fell in love with kiting as a child back home - built my first sled kite at the age of 10, and particularly love single line deltas - we recently flew a small delta (50 incher) about 500 m (~1500ft) over Grand Bend Beach - out on Lake Huron. What a feeling to have my kids look at this kite so high, holding the reel, feeling the pull on the string....then as people pass by asking "What are you doing?" - and watching as a 7 year old says "Flying a kite...look way up - see that yellow dot in the sky?"...........the response and reactions are just amazing! Even more amazing when they look at the reel and ask, how much more string you got?.... another 500meters!Hoping to learn more about Dual line kites and explore such a simple yet humbling hobby again!

    1993 AKA Convention in Seaside

    John, Here is a link to my video files just uploaded to YouTube. This is the 1993 AKA convention. I also uploaded the files from the 1992 Northwest Regionals, and 1993 WSIKF events. I placed them in separate playlists with index in the description. Let me know if I can do anything to improve upon them. I was a novice in those days, and didn't capture everything I now wish I had. Please feel free to share the url's wherever you wish. Oh, sorry I spelled your name wrong inside one of the videos. I corrected it in the description. -See you in Long Beach next week maybe. I'll be with the blokarts and buggies. -Steve Irby
