    • Join us for two full days of quad instruction on the beautiful shore of Corolla, North Carolina on April 8-9, 2017... We'll be covering everything from absolute basics (pure beginner) all the way up through advanced techniques as well as both introductory and advanced team flying that is proven to help your skills along much quicker while having a ton of fun at the same time in a very forgiving environment. Testimonials - http://tinyurl.com/jb-testimonials Sign up link: http://kitelife.com/forum/store/product/73-corolla-quad-clinic-apr-7-8-2018/ Currently registered: TBA == Ideal choice of equipment for this class is any model of Revolution 1.5 (includes EXP, SLE, B-Series, printed specials, etc) or similar "1.5 platform" models (like Phoenix, Freilein, Los Hermanos, etc) - we'll go through painless equipment set up, good tuning and all aspects of flight - the goal here is to demystify quad flying and set you up to win. If you plan on trying out team flying, you'll need to also have a quality 120' set of lines in your bag. Registration is $175 per person ($150 for KiteLife Subscribers) and includes full access to the clinic on both days (10a-4p)... Please note, there are ONLY 12 SPOTS left available and we expect them to fill up very quickly. If you're coming, we start the "Quad 101" portion of this class at 10AM SHARP on Saturday morning... It's jam packed with invaluable information and first time attendees are encouraged to consider attendance mandatory, countless details that add dimension to your set up and flight experience. NOTE: We'll all meet at Flying Smiles Kites around 9am for a quick meet/greet, and to choose our flying site based on wind direction at the time. If you are unable to make it by 9am, you can text or call me directly via 503-890-0280 to find out where everyone will be. For anyone who needs equipment or parts while in town, you can get pretty much anything you need from the Cath and Eliot Shook at Flying Smiles Kites right there in Corolla, just a few minutes away from the field. Hope to see you there!
    • Thanks for taking care of mess.
    • Neil This is actually a decorative piece that is attached to the fly line between the anchor point and the suspending kite (ie: a 125 or 252 Flo Form or alike)  The below link will give you a good idea of what I mean.  Be patient as you watch as the spinsocks show up about half way through.  The lighted spinning spinsock is the 45 footer in action. https://www.dropbox.com/s/98lxccefn4qyuky/VID_20171123_123446512.mp4?dl=0 Kindest regards Pete
    • For now I will check the EBay auction.  Quick question....   how many lb test line would you say I would need to attach to it?
    • Really good to here about your journey. Breaking stuff is one of those things, nature of the beast. Good that you can grab another bird and have some time with it. Yes, changing kites will delay things BUT what you learn from one will help on the other.
