Re: Craft Project

The only thing missing is a bobble on the top.
Better still, a propeller. :twisted:

If you look closely, you'll see a couple of Quail on the lawn on the right hand side and one under a bush.

Re: My First Flight

Jynx. Ugh! Hate calling you by that name. Would prefer to call you by your first name, but don't know it. Practice, practice, practice. Before you know it, you'll be outflying everyone. Have some really outrageous ideas for a stack, just have to get out. When you're ready, find someone to partner wi...

Re: Making (or Fixing) A Line Set

You can also dye the sleeving any color you want. Have used Rit dye for this and even dyed some vinyl tubing on some of my old school kites and homemade winders. Have heard that the lines can also be dyed but would think they would be rough. Time to experiment. Not sleeving lines make them less stro...

Re: Revs. Stack Lines

Have seen some Revs made of Xmas wrapping paper, silver was the color chosen. Looked really
cool in the sunlight. Having no mesh at the top would be a good idea.
Don't think Xmas wrapping would be very durable but quick to make.
Putting 7 tails on the back kite really adds to it.

Re: Golf Ball Spike

The arrow nock insert is what the arrow nock is glued to, not the end the broadhead attaches to. The broadheadfitting is glued into the shaft and the point is screwed into the fitting. Have seen some interesting camoflaged arrow shafts. Should be able to get colored ones. Use whatever you want for t...
