Re: 2008 Glenview - April 5 - Glenview, IL

:mrblue: GREAT TIME today at Chillicothe - average winds, but Rick's MAKR project flew well! Introduced a few people to the fun of flying and both my Dad and Uncle got into flying kites today. I learned that they had a cool box kite when they were kids! We saw 4-5 kites flying over a campground on t...

Re: Trains To Archs - Possible??

Mike & Jim - This is very helpful info...so is Rod using the line as the horizontal spar or is he tethering the 10 kites along the arch line kinda like Mike's illustration? That's my biggest dilema at this point - I may put something together as an experiement and see what happens...I'll be sure...

Trains To Archs - Possible??

So I'm making my 2nd set of "train kites" - not sure if that's what you call it. It's 5 stars that are separated by a couple feet of line and you fly them as a SLK and not as line laundry. Is there a way to connect several sets of them and stake out as an arch? How would I go about that a...
