Re: New 180GO! Team Kites

To eliminate the mustache, we can fill in the center. Or maybe it's a Fu Manchu now. http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/posted_images/user_224_rev_1_5_kite_sample_2.gif I like the use of alternating colors as I think it will show turns and spins more to the audience than a solid color. I think the eye is...

Re: New 180GO! Team Kites

Good news is they've already done a red center. Into The Wind has a custom colored mid-vent they sell. I know it is a B-Series, but I would think they would do the regular series as well. http://www.ikeclub.org/Forums/posted_images/user_224_itw_kite.jpg In playing with the template, it pays to keep ...

Ok Mike, You got me with the headline. At least I can help with a template. I've attached a .gif file with the outline of two kites that can easily be filled in with Paint (in Accessories on Windows machines) or other simple program. The colored version is to illustrate all the triangles and not my ...

Re: PIT BULLDOG PRE CUT PROJECT On Kitebuilder

Nice job!

You must have been well rested from Cabo to order material and finish in 5 days.

I like the color combination. Should we call it McBull, or maybe McSled?

Hope to see it in the air soon. You might need to find a KAP rig to hang under it.

Re: Where Can I Fly In Portland, OR?

You are in Barresi's backyard. Looks like West Delta Park is his home field. They also suggest contacting Theresa at The Kite Shoppe to find other flyers. See more info in Rev Forum link and also Google map link. http://www.revkites.com/forum/topic/996-portland-or/ http://tinyurl.com/22gw7s Have fun.
