Re: Dog Stake Rig

So I have been working on a second version using 4 pulleys. I have the majority of it roughed in.

Re: Dog Stake Rig

You guys are right, no matter how the lines are situated they will rub against each other or the pulley. I am hoping to get the pulley polished and waxed to the point that there is very little friction between it and the lines. About the same as having a twist or two in the lines during normal flyi...

KITES ON ICE

I have never flown an indor kite, but I allways tought that it would be easier to do it on ice, since, while skating, one can create more wind speed, when going backwards.
