  1. That little bit of slack is normal... at least it is on all of mine. Try pulling the nose forward just a bit. so it doesn't hang perfectly flat like you mentioned. It is a sensitive kite, but this *should* help.
  2. exactly! and it should fly equally as well in 7-10 deer farts! My first guess is that the bridle is tucked under the t-fitting or something as obvious as caught at the tail piece. It really shouldnt be acting like that. Maybe the nose tipped back too far? hmmm.
  3. hey no problem! John, You've got some airtime on a Desire UL too dont you? Something isn't quite right with upnet's...
  4. Something is wrong. Check that bridle closely... the Desire UL is generally a smooth kite, not too squirrily... I mostly use mine in very light wind but even up to 7mph it should be stable...
  5. Yes, this is huge. What a loss for the kiting world.
  6. Thank you! ...as do I to yours! Sadly, we wont be there. Too many conflicts this year and it's bummin' me out!
  7. ... and we were planning to be there... but the gas prices! oh the gas prices!
  8. Hey Steve!! great to see you here. I cant wait to see the vids. anything new?
  9. Your bad Carl. Oregon and WA are great. Ocean, mountains and desert in WA. Walport, OR (sp) is a great place for power kiting. It rains in WA, but wait 5 minutes and that will change. BB Penny Yes you're right Penny, I am bad! And you raise a good point, so I stand corrected. Although Oregon is full, Washington still has some room!
  10. I dont know if this happened to anyone else, but when I clicked that link my browser opened up in a million new tabs! they kept going and going and going... had to crash out. I gotta say... I am a wee leetle bit leery of looking again. has this happened to anyone else?
  11. I also have 2 Hawaiian Team kites that I could possibly part with. They are presently set-up for a 2 stack and the individual bridles are around someplace These have not been flown for many years, and have been in safe clean storage. From what I remember they are black with warm scheme chevrons at the trailing edges. Conditon GREAT! no rips, tears, or fading -at last look. I'll listen to offers. Photos available soon.
  12. hmmm I have one. They ARE nice! Sure wouldnt mind another though!
  13. yep... we'll be there again as well. It's important to mention for the newcomers ...that this is a show... tightly scheduled with invited flyers... there is bsically no free flying area near the demo field -other than at the end of the day, when it's a free-for-all! I encourage everyone that can attend to do so... Like Penny mentioned -for her, our first trip was also frustrating... We drove a long way and we expected to be able to fly and demo... not the case. It is a great show!!!
  14. Indoor flying is not an area that I am too familiar with... This link was posted on the AOK forum and I though it was pretty impressive . Sorry in advance if this is an old vid -or- a repost! http://www.myvideo.de/watch/1266928
  15. Workin' on it! I hope to be there... Just have too much stuff going the on right now...
  16. You all are going to be pretty upset when I win that Rev! done a little winemaking myself... seeing that set-up got me thinking about getting another batch going. Ok, so here's my best wishes for a safe and happy holiday... to everyone, wherever you are, and however you might celebrate. Carl

    Ghost Town

    Friggin COOL!!! nice nite vid... great music... looked like a helluva lot of fun, Monk!
  18. umm Penny? are you going to be there? hope so! My other gig may be somewhat subdued ... While doing some paint prep on a jobsite, I took a bad fall from a balcony a couple weeks ago. Still very banged up on my elbow, hip, and ankle... The plan is to fly -as usual... hoping the strain on my arms wont be too much. AnyHOO... we'll be there! looking forward to it all, and hoping for great weather... C'mon Sunday!
  19. Agreed, it's cool for quads, and I am more than happy to dunk a team kite in saltwater The river and it's southern turn are somtimes problematic for my "other" gig. We get what we get...
  20. As of last weekend the river was turning south. Sooo..... we'll see!
