  1. Great info…does he still produce them in some manner?
  2. Took a crack at my first diy kite project and finally got to fly it today. Worked great! Special thanks to user @Outlaw for a bunch of pictures and measurements. without those this wouldn't of been a success. HELIX 2.mp4
  3. Sounds good to me! One thing I will say…is rather not send out a kite into the ocean because I “experimented” and lost. Are there line symptoms when they are under stress and I should pull it in ASAP? I think I read somewhere that lines can buzz when under to much stress and about to snap? Is this true and any other symptoms I should look for besides physical things like line damage before it goes up?
  4. Little confused, so I shouldn’t use over 200 pound line for line laundry? Why is that? What does it do that would make the bigger laundry “unhappy”
  5. Awesome thanks. That’s the impression I got I just didn’t trust myself 😳
  6. I’m just getting into some more complicated kites and have a few questions. I was originally in the market (still am) for a lifting kite like a foil. I have bought some tube tails that are 20 feet and the bigger laundry pictured below. Since I can’t find the foil I want I ran into a 10 ft ddc kite. The into the wind stratosphere see picture below. It says it can hold 6 tails but wondering if it will be able to do the tube tails and the laundry I bought. Also it’s recommended to use 150# line I have 200 and 250 is that’s a big difference in weight that would affect flying? Should I use heavier line with laundry or no?
  7. Man, I was hoping that one was legit as it seemed better. We’ll see what happens…

  10. I recently just dug out a Parafoil I had since I was a kid and had a blast. I decided I wanted to give a bigger lifting kite a try with some laundry. Being new to quality kites i learned quickly there’s actually a lot of knock off websites selling the kites I’m looking Into(crazy) i purchased a kap 3.0 from here http://www.kapshop.com/Lifters-Kites/c75_3/index.htm anyone ever used them before? Orders still pending so just a littler nervous. I also bought an ultrafoil 30 before I knew about fakes from this website (https://kitesmall.myshopify.com) which seems alot more shady than the kap shop site. It does have returns and i used PayPal so not too worried about losing the money. Will anyway one be able to help verify if it’s a fake once I receive it? Thanks in advance!
