  1. I’ve gone away from using grommets and now use pieces cut from plastic milk jugs. I read about doing that here and it works great. I just put VHB tape on the plastic and then cover with a self adhesive nylon patch and sew around the patch. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Very nice work! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. My wife entered this in the WSIKF novice Kitemakers stunt kite competition and one second place! I’m very proud of her. My Eye kite got third! Made for a great day today! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. finally got a good picture of the “tails” kite. Was flying it last Tuesday with Andy from Ocean Shores Kites. He took this awesome picture. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Andy at Ocean Shores Kites has some PC20 Icarex. But it is very spendy. The least expensive Icarex I have found is Emma Kites. But I’ve yet to order any.
  6. Actually, she can’t seem to get the flying down. We’ve tried and she just doesn’t get it. So for now we both build, but I’m the only one who flies. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Here is a picture of the first flight of my wife’s first attempt at making a full size Quad line. It flew great in a moderately light wind. Sail is 3/5 oz Spinnaker cloth from Seattle Fabrics. Art is hand drawn using Sharpie permanent markers. IMG_0973.HEIC Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Using your idea of making a kite out of tails, I made one using the 100’ G kite tail. It flies great and has been a lot of fun! I’ll upload a picture later as I only have a video of it at the moment of the maiden flight that I posted on FB Quad Line Kite Group. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Here is a picture of my new applique kite. I drew the pattern based on the Seahawks full face logo. The kite is loosely based on a Rev II.
  10. I was in Ocean Shores a couple weeks ago and picked up a custom OSK low wind version for my wife. It was blowing too hard to fly it effectively but it sure flew well. I'm heading back down this weekend and will hopefully have a chance to fly it again, as well as my personal design that is smaller than a Rev II. I have to say the build quality is on par with my Exp and Old Rev II (circa 1994).
  11. Thanks for the welcome. I flew my first Rev in 1993 at the Long Beach Wa kite festival. I was instantly hooked and purchased a Rev II. A year later I made my own version and sized it down just slightly using Icarex for the sail and window mesh on the leading edge. This turned out to be a great flier and flies in very low wind. I’m currently working on my first kite with appliqué on the sail. I should have it flying this weekend.
