Sounds interesting -- keep us posted on the results. I once got some motor oil on a small area of one of my duals that made it appear translucent and shiny. I wonder how much weight it would add to the kite if the tire shine or oil was applied to the entire sail.
Well, the weather app says 18-21 mph winds this afternoon....which is rare rare rare here...but so is the the 3" of rain expected today. The "costco sized" hummus tub that I use as a rain gauge is full out on the porch railing. So no flying right now. It has been steady and constant today, yucky day for flying but good for putting the little one down for a nap.
