  3. Your talking about Martin Lester’s guitar kite. I think Into The Wind still sells them and other kite shops might have one laying around too so you have to search. Theresa Norelius would be a good person to contact as well Sent from my iPhone using KiteLife mobile app
  4. If your in Vegas, check out new silverbowl park. That’s where everyone in Vegas flies, usually on Friday nights. Next suggestion is to get a lighter frame like a 2 wrap. Vegas winds are regularly 5or lower so you have to gear for lighter wind. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
  5. This is such a loaded question. I have too many that are tied for the top spot. Prodancer, Vapor, Tattoo, Ocius, eclipse, Echo, ozone.......all depends on my flying mood.

    Bowtie remedies

    In fact the only two quads I've flown that didn't bowtie are the original Mquad that just happens to have curved edges and the airbow. My Solution quad will do it, my Hypnotic quad does it and of course my revs.
  9. So I've seen some fixes for the bow tie issue revs are prone to and I'm curious as to why the dual angle outer edge is the chosen fix. Lam does it on his ABS quad, Jon on his Djinn, Mat on his home builts. Jon stated in another thread that the trailing edge of the sail is where the problem is in that as you give brake there is a point where part of the edge flips before the rest causing the upright to flip. I noticed this on my rev today but where I saw it happening is along the trailing edge from the tip of the up right to about half way to the center panel and the more the center of the sail billows out, the easier it is to bowtie. How does that dual angle on the outer edge stop the bow tie or is there another mod to the sail shape that does it? I've toyed with the idea of a curved trailing edge inbetween the up rights as a fix but haven't tried it yet.
  10. Got everything worked out and kite received today. DH works long hours so if your trying to work out a deal be patient as it will take him a bit to get back to you. I'm quite satisfied with the deal.
  11. Last response I got asked for shipping address and said that he would be working long hours this week so might not ship until next week,but he forgot to give me his PayPal so I can pay him. He works a lot of 12 hour days so I’m trying to be patient. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
  12. No. I’m just waiting on PayPal info to get the eclipse. I think Desert is first and Rob next on th Oz unless someone pm’d and didn’t post. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app
