  1. So.. it's January 19th.. and I'm STILL looking for a Rogallo FlexiKite. anyone have one they want to part with?
  2. so still here and still looking for a Flexiwing Kite. btw I'm also looking for a used affordable and flyable Target Kite.. And a Corner Box Kite (also by Rogallo) I already have a Gibson Girl kite hmm might as well post. also looking for an HQ Satellite Kite. (yeah I like odd ones) and a REAL Marconi Jib Kite (I have the modern one that Gomberg sold) Rob
  3. Yes I am interested. Where are you moving to?? Still in TX? and yes I am patient hehehe Hey.. I'd also love a REAL Marconi Jib kite.. I'm a bit odd.. I like classic kites and the designs.
  4. yes Still Looking for a Flexikite or Rogallo Flexikite
  5. I'm still looking! Flexikite anyone?
  6. hehe Those aren't beaches. Those are slight trails against sand cliffs. Now. If you want a beach..Robert Moses.. now that's a beach. Kinda like when the Friends of Fire Island Lighthouse asked if I wanted to be "their" kite guy from the front of the Lighthouse. I declined citing 2 reasons. I said "..there are a lot of sharp pointed trees in front " ( the scrub pines)..and then I said (seriously) " 2. There's this big ass building in the way" (the Lighthouse). They laughed and sorta agreed..and I stayed as Rob the Kite Guy at East Islip Marina and Park.
  7. figured I'd come back to this thread. I attempted to turn my tetra into a 16 cell.. and it fell apart. so after two years I rebuilt it as a 10 cell.. and of course Covid comes by and I;m stuck home. As I stated in another forum listing.. I'm looking for a Rogallo Flexikite the ones that came in a tube made from Mylar. (yeah I like odd kites). But I really miss heading out. plus.the Beaches are now closed!
  8. Well here's one. I picked up a Kite-A Maran some years ago.. and finally put it together last year. I took it out to fly several months ago. and ..well did get it to fly.. barely. and also damaged one of the pontoons. Well I was able to repair it.. But lo and behold.. I can't find the instructions. Anyone have a copy or can xerox a copy for me?? yeah I like unusual kites Rob Friedman Port Jefferson Station, NY
  9. Well.. I'm looking for a Rogallo Flexikite (from the Flexikite Company in CT. Anyone have one they would like to part with? Rob Friedman Port Jefferson Station, LI, NY
  10. hey.. let's not forget my "sort of" KAP rig.. using a kite fishing kite and a bait ferry to carry a small action cam up and down the line
  11. hehe I meant an actual kite! haha oh got more photos of the kite up at Cedar yesterday posted them on FB
  12. Well.. i still need to work on the bridle ..but it can slide up and down (I made a prussic knot with an overhand and a loop. Personally I would have preferred carbon fiber, or fiberglass, and some proper connectors, as well as ripstop sewed sails. Hey if any of your local driends have an unusual single line kite they want to donate..... I'm up for it.
  13. the hard part of the 10 cell dense pack vs the 16 cell open.. is the 16 cell version only uses the 6 way connectors. so it's all the same pieces.. Actually a 16 cell is just 4 4-cell kites all stuck together. The 10 Cell only adds the 3 layer (counting from the top of the tetrahedron) and some of those require a 9 way connector!! That was one of the bits to accomplish..again with zipties and micro fuel lines. Oh the other bit of it being collapsible is that all this fits into a Fiat 500 with the rear seat folded down.
  14. well since I am new here.. let's see if I can post images: not sure how they post here.. but you can see how I made the connectors from 3/32ID micro fuel line and zipties using 12"bamboo skewers. The first version is a 4 cell using garbage bag plastic as the sails. I was hoping to go to a 16 cell open version.. but I didn't have enough skewers..an all the rest I found was 10". so I made a 10 cell Dense Tetrakite. I looked for sail items.. then hit upon using giftwrap ..which is often mylar.. and went that route. Earlier this week I brought it out but the wind was too strong and snap a fe
