Years ago on vacation in OBX I picked up an HQ Bolero. Every summer it would get flown for a week than packed away till next year. Fast forward to 2020. I'm retired and just moved permanently to OBX and plan to expand my flying. I pulled out the old kite and made a few repairs until I can figure out a new model. I would like to work toward a quad and learn more about building kites.
So latest update:
All fixed! Good to go! Just need to build up some coordination and endurance in the leg. May even salvage a little outdoor flying this year!! If not, at least indoors.
For all of you that had me in their thoughts - Thank you!
Thanks to Bill, for letting me lose on personal kit, and lending me some longer handles. Thanks to the rest of the guys at Dunstable today. Confirmed my suspicions the Rev copy I bought wasn't all that, thanks for the improvement tips for the kite too, lines, spar repair/replacement. Definitely nothing like anything I've flown before. I'll be back with my Frankenstein'd kite soon, Covid permitting...
