  1. CA Glue does not flex and is generally not good for non rigid surfaces.. Does something attach to this Velcro or is it just a protective wear spot?
  2. Good to be back behind the machine.. Planning to experiment with a few frames.. We will see what works best..
  3. Looking forward to it..
  4. It wouldn't be the first thing that flew there for the first time..
  5. Kite # 92 in final stages..
  6. Bring them to the Rogallo.. I'll help you any way i can..
  7. The Advantage of the Rev EXP is it comes with Handles and Lines.. For all other options those are usually separate.. The Kite is indeed quickly outgrown but you will likely be crashing a bit at first until you get the hang of it. Freilein is an excellent kite at a reasonable price point. If you go with Freilein go with OSK since they control the QC for their brand and have a higher standard.. (I've never seen even a stich out of place on an OSK Freilein. Handles.. Freilein Handles are my personal Preference but there are other options availalbe. Length is a personal preference but the standard is 13" as you stated. (I personally Prefer 15" but that's just me) Lines. - Laser Pro Gold (aka LPG) or Skybond are the way to go. 20-30 meters are good starting points. Words of wisdom. When it comes to cheaper lines or cheaper kites you generally get what you pay for. Get in touch With Eliot, Cath or Cassie at Flying Smiles Kites. They have Freileins, Handles and Custom Linesets. Honest Business with Great Service. https://flyingsmileskites.com/

    Corolla President's Day 2022

    An Event hosted by Flying Smiles Kites. GREAT company and an incredible day of flying. Could not have asked for a better wind range from near "indoor unlimited ceiling early in the AM" to "We can bridle and fly the chair" later in the afternoon.
  11. FWIW, The Sewing Machine I've used for the big majority of these kites is a cheap Brother SM2700 that I only use to sew kites.. Very pleased with the results for a $100 sewing machine..
  12. I use the Refractive properties of the fabric to control how the panels flash.. These first two videos are using offset directions so the individual panels flash is a sequence. This kite is made of both Ripstop and poly.. Notice the Shimmer effect. And this is what happens when you align everything. The Whole panel flashes at the same time..
