  1. I haven’t seen any of the issues you mention with my Widow NG. Shortly after I got my I broke a tube and had Jon T. Send me the framing plan for the kite. This should help you make sure you put the stop in the right place and allow you to check all the other frame and bridle dimensions. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

    Vented Kites

    I love my vented Mamba. Flies similar to the standard, so if you like the Mamba (as I recall you got one last year) this would be a good option. Ken makes them with removable windows that cover part of the vent so you can adjust to the wind speed. I have had no problem flying mine in winds over 20 mph with ease.

  3. Like Mark said lean back and in the center of the window. If you are near the edge of the window the wind sometimes flips my kite over and then I need to walk ☹️.
  4. I would add my recommendation for the Widow NG. Very capable and will take you quite a while to outgrow it. Starts to pull pretty hard past 13-15 mph - that’s when I put it away. Should be able to get it from kites and fun things in a few days (not Amazon fast, but less than a week.) Consider coming to the Berkeley Kite Festival at the end of July.

  5. I have some tape that I will bring tomorrow in case the super glue doesn’t work. Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

  7. Fear not - we still have another 2 or 3 months of good winds in the Bay Area. This weekend was surprisingly light, but still good enough at Shoreline to fly my UL (ok dual line and not rev, but still...). Sent from my iPad using KiteLife mobile app

  9. I have the same problem on my iPad. Just reloaded the app on the chance it got corrupted - no luck. I get the same error message as jaydub2000 gets on android.
  10. should be at 100 tickets now! I are ready to schedule my weekend
