Re: Lam Hoac kite bag

Thanks!
It rolls up fine. Ends up a little fatter on one end but it is perfectly doable. Functionally it came out nice, it wasn't the easiest thing to sew on. Rather thick and unwieldy.

Re: Lam Hoac kite bag

Re: Lam Hoac kite bag

Nice! Looking good. I have spent the past 4 nights making some modifications to my Rev bag. I figured I could improve mine until I could afford the Lam bag. Here is what I have so far. Put the strapping and a hanger down the middle, credit to the Lam Hoac bag for that. I added 6 more mesh pockets to...

Re: new from indiana

It was good to meet you and talk with you at the beach. Welcome to the club and forum. If Big Mike didn't get you a card at the retreat look give your buddy his info when he is ready to buy a Rev. www.thekitesite.net. Hope to fly with you again soon!,-- Mikey

Re: 3rd annual IKE Kite retreat! September 21st / 22nd

Agree with Steve, all the 1.5 revs are nice and fly well.
Also I believe Big Mike is coming to the retreat and he is a licensed rev dealer. I am sure he probably has a few revs also.

Be worth calling him to see what he has on hand.
Looking forward to this weekend!

Re: 3rd annual IKE Kite retreat! September 21st / 22nd

That is funny, Somehow Shari and I will make this trip, Kites and all, in our Miata. Although we have taken to strapping the rev bag behind the headrests when the top is down. I may be calling my buddy Big Bruce....Er Mike... to toss a couple things in his slightly larger vehicle.

Re: New Tech M-80 - any information would be great

Hello,
The line that is hanging is probably to tension up the trailing edge. It is not uncommon. I may have one of those. I will look around and see if I can find it. If I do I can post a couple pics.

Re: Blown Cell Repair on Parafoil

I would like to do A rok but I won't complain too much as long as we stick with a kite. Another idea would be a banner?? be cool to have a couple more to put up at fests. Just a thought.

The people from the chamber of commerce showed up on Sunday, filmed us for a while, Interviewed you. Said they might put something on their web site. Said to call them this year to let them know when we were coming.
And don't worry I had forgot also.
