Hey Y'all, it's time to let some go. We have twins due in September and not enough house for them and all my hobbies. I guess I'll give priority to the babies. Anyhow, these look like the ones that don't make the cut. Prism Tensor 3.1 has been flown once. Has dye marks on the back of the sail, apparently from the lines, but is 100% functional. $250 SOLD Prism Micron 5 Stack x2) As far as I can tell the sails are identical. One set has ripstop tails, the other has plastic tails. $175 each. $300 for the pair Gomberg Super Sled (Yellow/Black), pennant tail, 2 transition tails, ITW 11' Squid, 200'x200# line and sand anchor, 2 spiral worms. $150 Prism Stylus 2.8) I don't remember if I've ever had this one up in the air. No lines $75 HQ DeltaHawk, I've not flown this DeltaHawk yet. I was planning on stacking it with the other, but it never happened. No lines. $20 shipped with anything from above. Non-Smoking home, prices include CONUS shipping. I can take further pictures of anything that you are interested in and may even have time tonight to spread out them out.
After last Saturdays brief visit to a fun fly. I have decided to go ahead and take the plunge and and get a lifter and start a single line set up to fly and put some eye candy up In the air. Any recommendations for a mid level starter? I like the big stuff, but a line full of small stuff is good too! Plus, it will probably be good to learn with. Thanks in advance for any feedback
Hi all, I'd like to lift a large flag as line art, starting from scratch. It will be from a mountain top 250m up on a small island, 2.5km square. The flag itself is 3m long, and should weigh maybe 3lbs at the most. I'm hoping to have it ready to fly in about 5 weeks. I looked into 'flag print' kites, but I'd prefer it to blow in the wind as a flag, as opposed to just a static image on a Rokkaku or similar. So far the easiest thing seems to be just buying a white or light blue single line soft parafoil/sled, and attaching the flag a few meters below the kite on the line somehow. To be honest, I'm not even sure what I would need to consider to do that either. Where could I find small/easy to use kites suited to this kind of task/environment, and are there any DIY bridles or conversion kits for line art/laundry? My budget is around $100 at the moment. Thanks a lot, Marcus.
