  1. These are fairly popular in the far east. You can spend a little or alot on these. I got to try one it was pretty impressive, you can really make a kite dance with these. Probably easier than trying to reinvent the wheel chopping up an old bike. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app

    Arch

    Here's my prototype, I'm happy with the spacing, tail length etc. It flys well, bit of a bugger to get back down. Now to take it apart and do the art work! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  3. I will hang my laundry from a second line on days when the wind is fickle i.e. Little to no wind at ground level. You get your lifter up and then raise and lower your laundry like a flag on a pole. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  4. This is what I use for anchoring my larger kites on grass. It is based on a design for holding aircraft down. Simple to make and the longer the spike you use the better the hold. And yes, I highly recommend gloves. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  5. Defiantly, mines hardly been flown indoors. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  6. So how did this project go? I didn't contribute as Makatakam and Edmonds answers pretty well covered things. I'll add a few pictures of one I did. I had to put 3 holes in each kite . 2 holes in the sail, one on each side of the spline, and 1 in the keel. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  7. Making your own can be very rewarding and frustrating , I'd start off making somthing smaller than an 8m puss If buying do your home work, some fly better than others and details on the smaller ones are generally not as good as on the larger ones. I bought the one in the picture it is around 90 feet, has 3d suckers and eyes. Smaller versions of this kite have flat eyes and suckers . you can also get squid and jelly fish. Good luck with this and happy shopping or sewing . Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  8. The local paper enjoyed the kites too! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  9. Just a few out taking advantage of a beautiful day. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  10. A very good show here this afternoon! Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  11. I'm kind of late replying to this. Anything further apart than a yard makes launching and take down difficult. I space mine a minimum of the length of the kite and tail apart from each other. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app

    Icarex

    She is definitely a beauty, and looks like she is a well mannered kite. So how many quads do you have now? Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
  13. An arch is one of this coming winters projects. Sent from my SM-G920W8 using KiteLife mobile app
