Unusual Kite

Here is a photo of a Kitemandu kite with a nine foot wingspan.
It is old school but will trick.
Strickly a higher wind kite.

BIG Kites

Show us what you have. This is a Kitemandu Predator, 14 1/2' kite with a Kitemandu 800 high wind kite in front. Have flown a stack of four but did some shoulder damage, so don't fly big stacks anymore. http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/posted_images/user_190_kites003_1_.jpg http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums...

Golf Ball Spike

I use a hollow fiberglass rod in .261-.298 for the shaft, a pink golf ball, drilled and glued on and a metal arrow nock insert. You can also use a solid fiberglass rod and sharpen the tip.

Re: Revs. Stack Lines

Found that five feet between kites works well. Cut pieces of dacron 12" long and burn ends. Make 7 per kite. Double line and tie an overhand knot near the tips. Measure link lines to 54". Cut. Place a mark 10" from each end, fold end to mark and tie overhand knot. Seal ends with a lig...

Making Line Sets

Well, you asked for it, so here it is. I use Ashaway dacron line for the sleeving, cut 18" long. Also use Skybond line. It is kevlar line sleeved with a red striped dacron. Cut to length and remove kevlar. Haven't seen any of this for a while. Place a small awl or nail in each end and use a lig...

Rev Stack

I've got an idea to fly some Revs. :?: Don't know if it will work but will give it a try. First kite, right side up, second one, upside down, third one, right side up. Will try using only four stack lines on the uprights instead of seven. I'll post photos and let you know how it works. If you feel a...

Re: What Lines

I like to use lines between 100 to 150' long for flying stacks. It depends on how big the stack is. The more kites, the stronger the lines. It gives you plenty of wind window to play with. Add some 100' tails to each kite and watch the people crowd around you. :mrorange: Here is a mixed stack flown ...

Show Me Your Revs.

Let's see what you fly. This Rev is named "Beau" after one of my black cats. Note the green of the eyes is in a different place than a standard Ninja Eyes kite. Homemade Revs? You judge whether you want to post them. http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/posted_images/user_190_ninja_nov__19__2008_...

Re: Short Quad Line Sets

Have tried 10' lines on a Rev 1. :rotfl Too short, hit the ground every time I tried to make a spin. For catch and toss I prefer lines under 50'. Throwing is difficult if lines are longer. Lines 90-120' long are what a friend and I use to team fly. Flying a stack requires longer lines, up to 150'. H...

Re: Hello There

Hi, guys. Yes, we've had a good 24" of snow in the last week and another 3" this morning. Ninety miles south of here in Victoria the winds are gusting to 60 knots, good wind for a 4' Flexifoil. Yep, have been making lines a long time. Will add something later. Oops. Some of you misspelled ...
