  1. Hi, thanks for your reply. I haven't been flying in excessive winds for the kite but she has had a few bumps. I have fixed this now with the help of another forum member oapbillf. They very kindly sent me some dacron and I have made 4 patches and reinforced both sides of both wing tips. I have added a picture of the original damage. All the washers etc are in place IMG_7942.heic
  2. Hi, looking for some help. On one side of my rev xx the holes that the bungee passes through on the lower wing tip have elongated by about 8mm. Now I wan to repair this to stop it getting any worse. The sail material has given as well as the reinforcing / fairly rigid sheet plastic on the back side of the sail. My thought is to try and find some of the same material that reinforces the wing tip and glue (CA) this over the damaged area, then make a hole in the correct place and pass the bungee through the repair. Any thoughts / advice? I think this may have happened on a very clumsy high speed leading edge impact landing that snapped the vertical spar on that side. The tension isn"t excessive in the bungee. Any thoughts let me have them, cheers .
  3. congratulations to the winners enjoy those lines , very generous to throw in a second prize.😀
  4. Thanks Stephen , we have a chandlers in town, I'll pay a visit in passing.... .................picked up some bungee and replaced partly on a couple of kites,. Much improved no flutter and no lumpy knots catching on the ground at the leading edge
  5. good point on using what's available as a supplier🙂
  6. Evening everyone Picking some brains here. I need to replace some of the bungee cord on my rex RX and XX. I don't want to buy the rev spare endcap kits as it seems a really expensive way to get hold of some bungee cord. So I had a look on eBay and a couple of other places and I can buy bungee cord in all sorts of lengths. But what is the correct spec? Sizing seems to be in diameter. Anyone know the spec used or I can rely on a rough measure, or do I go for the spec I think is right and then tension as I think to get the desired tension in the sail etc. Hope this makes sense as it appears to be a bit of a ramble
  7. Thanks for the reply detailing your experience. I still think its worth doing as it opens up the choice beyond a genuine rev. Only problem then is too much choice🙂
  8. Anyone imported a quad from Europe or the USA? Can you remember the import tax %? I'm thinking of importing any pitfalls or problems or particular sellers you would recommend or not?
