  1. Today
  2. just ordered a pair of Ticas, should get them in a month, i hope. i chose a simple color scheme to sort of match my other pair of Skyburners, but also to mimic the native birds, mainly eagles and vultures.
  3. @Cot51stStateIf you have Photoshop or Paint Shop Pro (anything with layers capability), I'll gladly show you how to make them..
  4. As long as the camera is fixed and not panning around, sure.. That's the big requirement to make these. The camera has to be still..
  5. If I send you the video clip, can you document the moment I broke the leading edge in my B-Pro? I'd make that the background image on my cell phone to use as a reminder 😫.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Very Happy with this kite. Hopefully a bit stronger breeze soon to test it out.

    Photos of my home made kites and accessories. Many made from Gomberg Kite tails.
  9. No, not nearly as nice. This is a field adjacent to the local high school. The marching band uses a portion of it for practice. With all the recent rain; weeds, clover, and fireant mounds are trying to take over. East Carolina's intramural athletic athletic fields drain a lot better.
  10. @Cot51stState Is that the ECSU field you fly at??
  11. wellcome to the forum Andy, its a great place to learn and grow, been at it myself for a year. ive also got a few Prisms , (none that i would part with right now) i'm a big fan of the E3 and Zephyr and fly them often. good luck in your flying and collecting.
  12. @riffclown Awesome. Thanks for the snappy response. The photo of the size difference really bring home the point. I had read your buying guide before but was still mistaken in thinking there was't much difference between a 2.2 sport and a 3m traction. Thanks again. I'm gonna buy the Symphony Pro 2.2. now. Will let you know how the conversion goes. Thanks again for your advice.
  13. @LeMac I highly recommend the Symphony Pro. The Bridling is much much sturdier. Bridles on the Beach models are simply tied Dyneema. The Peter Lynn Hornet is a traction kite and not really a stunter. The Symphony kites are Sport size. The Hornet Kite is SQUARE METERS.. There is a huge difference in size despite the incremental number difference. Here is an Older Symphony Pro 2.2 laying on top of a 2M Crossfire for size reference. Here is that same 2M Crossfire on top of a 4M Crossfire. As you can see the sizing difference is not only noticeable but considerable, especially in the amount of force these kites can generate. If you are going to get into the traction side of things (Buggying/Landboarding) then a 3M is going to end up in your bag since it is the baseline standard for traction kiting. Just be ready for the huge pull these kites can generate quickly. FWIW, the 2.2.4 is a good intro into traction and will pull a buggy. My first buggy ride was with one.
  14. Hi Riffclown. Love the videos of your 2.2.4. I'm getting into kiting after my son was recently gifted a symphony beach 1.3 and it's re-awoken a passion I had for my basic stunt kite I had when I was a kid. I'm tempted to try your mod, guess the models have changed since your originally created your mod. Of the existing models would you recommend the Symphony beach 2.2 or the Symphony Pro 2.2? I also have the option of buying a second hand Peter Lynn Hornet 3m which I'm quite tempted by. I'm most likely to fly stunting but wouldn't mind building up to a landboard as I build up my flying skills. Lee
  15. Hi everyone. I'm really new to the sport but already have a few dual line kites. I'm already madly in love with our hobby. My favourite kite that I own is the Prism E3 but also love my 4-D. In the coming months/years I'm very keen to collect a couple of vintage Prisms. So if anyone has anything they'd like to part with, please get in touch. Thanks Andy
  16. That’s incredible! Can’t wait to hear how it flies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
