Re: *IKE, THE RED BARON."

Next thing to do...is to start practicing with TDStk. Me and my family went for some fun at Huntington Beach, CA. and passed by Dave's store, I bought some SLE's leading edges, that I might set on IKE TRB. Or maybe on my Space Stations. Okay, that's my report from Southern California Hector Herrera....

I hope you like it and maybe other fellow kite fliers will follow the idea. TODAY...was the first time I experienced the wind going ...

*NEW DOG.STK. DESIGN*

As promised!!! My new Dog Stake design was meant to do this flying technic easier . My idea is that we have four lines and it just didn't make sense to me, to have only two rings togheter and four lines in the same ring hole...???

Amigos!!! Just before Christmas I contacted Texlon, but I haven't been able to send you the proper info. I recently received some SAMPLES from Them. and I am sharing it with you.
