  1. Sat Sep 30 16:38:39 CEST 2017 GF, forecasted 3-4m/s Fazer XL and XXL stacked on 35m 180kg lines Two 23m (75 ft) prism tube tails To carry stuff After the soon 3 months on QLKing I decided to end that test/project and return to DLKs (and "at the same time" continue with QLKs). During the QLK time I got kind of "transportation spoiled". I only had two kites to carry around: B-series 1.5 std and full vent. The full vent venting holes are patched with removable thin sheets of cellophane attached with (centimeter wide strips of) tape.* Included in the package was two, three and

    This session was a work out. Most of the time it was from the low wind requiring work to keep the stack in the air, but now and then there was some "traction action". For this session it would have been an advantage if the frames were a bit lighter. The double tails (Prism 23m/75ft tube tails) looked great when flying straight forward or when making a wide turns. Tight loops however caused the tail on the inner side to stand still.

    My latest project is my first stack. Yes, I probably should start with something smaller, but too much pull has not been a problem so far with these kites. I've had much respect for the wind when using the Fazer XXL (or rather when choosing to use it or not) which has resulted in much physical exercise when keeping it in the air. Slightly remarkable IMO is the opinion of my mother in law: "The green kite looks better than the blue one". I've been flying the Fazer XXL in spite of its look. I have also ever heard that it ever looks good from anyone anywhere any time. However I've gradually gotte
  4. So i have a custom set of 7 rev ii kites stacked all of them have pink leading edge the stack goes from light pink to black all solid color kites are in a custom bag . Does anyone have any interest there are 7 in the stack . Will post pictures later .
  5. I recently acquired a stack of TRLBY kites that needs a little bit of work. I'm sure much of it is fine, but I'd like to take this opportunity to learn more about stacks anyways so I have a handful of questions to the experienced flyers of stacks. What kind of line should I use to make link-lines? Dacron? What kind of knots (and configuration) should I use for the lines? Clips or not? The TRLBY setup typically uses these paper clip type things to attach the bridle to the spars. Should those be used in stacking setups, or should I make little leaders that I larkshead lines to?
  6. 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
  7. The sails on my Trlby 4 stack have finally reached retirement age. I have plenty of ripstop but I need a pattern for the Trlby sails and I have not been able to get a hold of a ripstop Trlby to copy. In my travels I have collected 8 more frames, including 3 heavy duty main spars. Today, I found 8 more singles online and bought em immediately. I should have everything needed for a 20 kite Trlby stack! I know this thing is going to be under some heavy duty stress so any help on what gauge the kite to kite links should be would be awesome. I have a belt rig made by Kiteman Jack for running big
  8. The B2 stack chat got me craving another multiples creation. So as stated...a Progressive was thrown together. B2 (2 wrap) B (3 wrap) Rev 1 (4 wrap) at around a 4' spread. I test flew on some 50#x50' Shanti Skybond in a light breeze and all felt good... The next day brought on some highly variable wind..up a down..all around.. but it gave me the chance to get some long lines out and let the 3some breathe. I flew 90#lpg x80' for a few. The gust were pretty strong and I have broken 90# several times with stacks. So I switched..200#lpgx100'. Here are the results... Of course the wind dies when yo
  9. Hi All, I am interested in Stacking some Indoor Gliders. Particularly the iFlite Vented. I had a quick attempt this morning and found they required constant pressure to keep in line. As soon as I Let them glide out, the front one would tip and get pulled on its side, or flip over. I had a connection from the Back Kites tow point through the front kites vent, and onto the front tow connection point. I would like to hear from other glider stackers, what they have tried and learnt.
  10. A little news clip from Friday. Mr. Boyton stopped in town. Jacksonville, Florida and we did some kiting. Started out geared as a K.A.P. run but the wind was non cooperative....so Rev play indeed This is right next to Everbank Field..Home of the Jaguars...also right on the banks of the St. Johns River... Downtown Jacksonville
