Re: Powder coat oven

Do you bake or fry donuts? Donut oven? It is like a miniature of the stuff I normally design and build for work. Anybody need anything powder coated let me know! I can also paint exhaust manifolds and pistons with ceramic heat barriers!

Powder coat oven

I finally got an oven made to do some powder coating and cerakoting. So now I will be able to powder coat my handles and stakes! The oven is almost all recycled and re-purposed.

Re: Indiana Flyer

Welcome!
Like Mike said. Shari and I like to fly at the dunes. It is a bit over an hour and well worth the drive. We like to go up Mid day, try to get there a bit before the swimming closes. Then everyone else leaves the beach to us. Come down this Saturday if you are free.

Re: Club Fly, 6/29/13

Sounds fun to me! Although 10 people unrolling lines and putting together kites might spoil the surprise.

I always have wanted to fly at the friendship fest. Draws alot of people on Saturday. Would depend on if they mowed the grass in the big field.

Re: Dragonfly Micro Kite

That thing is cool. If I am not mistaken Donna H. made a micro kite using a real pair of butterfly wings. I think she won a category at convention last year.

Re: A very nice article about kiting

I am in agreement. She also used some of Shari's nice photos. Hopefully it will bring some interest and members in from the Lasalle area.

Re: Check This Out!

Looks like fun. It has been popping up on facebook lately also. They had a pretty skilled group to keep that many Revs in order with no major crashes. Makes me look even more forward to WSIKF.

Re: Saw You Guys At The Naperville Kite Festival

There are a few club members on the west side of chicago that may be close enough. If you can do the interview over the phone or Skype I could help, and I am sure some other members would be willing.

Re: PPG - The next level of Kiting

That would be a barrel of fun. If you don't mind me asking what does a basic setup cost? If you have an engine failure can you descend and land as you would with a standard parachute?

I have been there twice and both times I have been able to fly most of the day. As long as you are capable and comfortable flying around people. The strip of beach is where I usually fly during the day. I have done most of my flying early and late in the afternoon, but flew off and on all day. 75' l...
