Re: Hello from West Central Illinois

Hello Robbie, welcome to IKE.
Get yourself an iflight, indoor glider kite, from Big Mike. You can fly it from your chair while you're web surfing for more kites!

Re: N.Y.M. Flutter

I do not have a NYM, but I fly with 3 wraps all the time in my revs, even in 3mph.
It's all in the technique.

Re: Fighter Kites in the New York Times

I'm guessing the spears are bamboo, hand shaped.
There's a huge event in India where the whole town has hundreds of people flying from rooftops.

Re: KOLM Questions

Go! It's kites! Go!
Plus, when the flyers get back to the Holiday Inn, we turn the large atrium into our own indoor flying field. Glider kites, indoor Revs, rc helicopters.... or a fish that goes to the ceiling!
Go!

Re: Help 180GO! design our team kites

What about having an asymmetrical layout, mostly red/black on the right and the left side has white mixed in to get something sort of like the current team kites.

Or edit #6 to have a black center v panel in the red kite and a red center v panel in the black kite

Re: New York Minute "Colorizer"

I think the 70% refers to 70% more venting than to the full vent b. Not 70 % of the whole sail.

Re: Treasure Island, FL - January 18/19, 2014

Hello kids... I get in Friday morning and leave Tuesday afternoon with rental car.
I have a studio room with a single queen now, but could probably change it to a double queen if you, Jeff, want to share a room.
I could take you Monday if you need a ride.

Re: Quadcopter!

there is also a quadcopter made by the Blade company that can carry a GoPro. One of our rc sailboat guys flew it over the pond while we were racing our boats. I have not seen that video yet.
