Re: New 180GO! Team Kites

ok, here's a thought (i still get some now & then)..... regardless of the final sail design(s), what if "we" (meaning the expert kite makers/sewers of IKE) add custom vent panels (triangles, circles) to the sails? The sails would still be the factory SLE panels but perhaps the venting ...

Re: New 180GO! Team Kites

after some serious thought...I would fly any kite you allow me the privilage to fly.
But really, the "Striped" ones (as in Isaac's post) would have a dynamic look in the sky.

Re: New 180GO! Team Kites

yea Mikey, it is hypnotizing....kinda reminds me of watching a saltwater taffy machine. Anyone else?
Mr. Kory...could you please make an animation with an assymetrical layout? I've been wanting to see how they look when lined up vertically and doing the Benifits move.

Re: New 180GO! Team Kites

Do you have a blank template for the SLE sail layout to play with color arrangements? Or are you thinking of completly new custom sail layouts? I use Paint Shop Pro at work on occasion. Then I could make 3D models and animate them in formations to get a virtual look see.

Re: L'il Lee Stack

Very nice work!
So, are you going to get more material to make 2 more so that it's an 8-stack?
Are you using original Rev endcaps for your minis?
Now, you just need to make an indoor stack - hmmm

Re: Illegal Kiting

Mike, I did not run into any trouble. What happened was when I was ready to fly, right next to the Colloseum, a police car drove by and stopped about 100 feet away, facing my direction. So, before I launched I went over to the police car and simply asked if it would be ok to fly for a few minutes. T...

Hello, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. If you haven't heard, I also got MARRIED :!: last month. Anyway, here's a video (with music) of what I call a Rev 1.5 Evolution stack. It's a 3-stack of a 1.5 UL (pre-SLE), an SLE, and a B-series. The stack lines, 100# blended spectra (old dual-line se...
