  1. Thank You El Señor Barresi! I am very fortunate to have found this forum and I appreciate the time and effort involved with maintaining this space for us winged-folks. My kiting experience took off in 2020 when a stunt kite quiver became a refuge for my spiritual and mental well-being. Lasting joy and many hours of flying since the stunt kites as well as one power kite (training for kitesurfing) and single line DeltaBox and gliders keep me excited for the future windy days. I love the idea that flying kites can get us outdoors and enjoy the time safely together. Social interactions without the need to wear a mask because our lines would cross! Here in Minneapolis, MN there was plenty of time to dwell on issues beyond kiting—but, who has time for social media when we can fly together? I have aspirations for increasing exposure to this uplifting sport in my city and communities. Especially when I have the fortune of having kites. If there are any of you here who has experience and knowledge to share about creating kite clubs or other types of organizations dedicated to flying our framed-friends, please o am all ears🤞 Let’s get off the ground together and have fun! See you out there in the sky, Eric

  2. Thanks for offering this open format forum. I have been making miniature half scale for years. Love flying the fast and furious ones. Enjoy my dual liners so started making my own. Two complete. One high aspect trickster 98 inch 8.4oz. 6 stand offs. Other precision 8 ft. Very arched LE. 8.2 oz. Both cxl 150 for lighter wind which I prefer. Zero ok too. On to another. All are going to be very taut with no baggyness ie extra wing battens and micro carbon anywhere needed even pocket to pocket sewn into sail. Enough rambling will share my knowledge about fighter kites after making hundreds of different sizes and designs. Will need help with stunt kite design. Totally reckless experimental homemade kind of guy. Look forward to maybe helping or being helped. Thanks Michael Marmarase

  3. New to forum first post. Have been making fighters for many years. Hundreds Experimented with every conceivable design and size. Only make a few now but mainly miniature hata or buka. Hata usually 7x10. Buka 7x11. Can't really bet the simplest designs. All made of bamboo and metalized polypropylene ie. Foil wrapping sheets. Keep a few on hand always give away rest. Started making 2 line stunt kites. One high aspect light wind trickster 8.4 too heavy. Second precision very curved L E. 8.2 oz. CXL 150 both kites. Both are extra taut 3 standoffs on one. Don't want any baggyness in one I m making so will add s.o. after built as needed and putting battens near tip and micrcarbon from trailing edge pocket to top cross or tie into leading edge as needed. Post when done. Micheal
