Re: Finally made it to IKE

You and I have some shared things with kite flying. I used to set up two or three kites as well to swap out based on the wind at the moment. I haven't spent enough time on dual line though...... Pretty much stuck on revs and single line. Need more flying time......

Re: Finally made it to IKE

Howdy, and happy to have you here. Gusty and thermals (or no wind) - sounds like Illinois in the summer! But without the mountains.

Re: Revolution reflex?

Nice kites! Mike is right, our forum participation can vary quite a bit, and it is pretty quiet right now. Glad you are here. We'll probably get a bit more active heading into the fall.... I'm still distracted by that four letter word.. .WORK.

Edmond, I like seeing a Rev 1 in your profile pic. We'll have to fly some time (and I'll bring a Rev 1). I just can't make the fly today.

Re: IKE Retreat 2016?

Yes. We've usually had it towards the third weekend or end of September. I'll see what the festival calendar shows and also see what the Wisconsin kiters have on their schedules to see if we can get more of them to come as well. Also maybe other people can put their thoughts down here.....

Re: Kaixuan Kite 11-ft Centipede

Those are pretty great visually. It's an interesting design, really captivating for people watching because of the movement of the kite. I like it even if it's cCc. I hope the cCc is not too crappy. You can always reframe it if the spars suck.

Re: Milwaukee

I've never gone to that one, and I don't think many of the Wisconsin or IKE kiters go. My concern is don't think they rope off any of the field for sport kite flying, and because of the fireworks, people will be covering the field. Of course, you can always go for the fireworks and see if you can ge...

Re: Club/Fun Fly Pontiac, IL June 19th 10 AM

Go. My advice. Fly. A lot. With other people. I'm still working on stuff because I don't fly enough. Had something click in my head this year that somebody told me several years ago, so now it will take two or three more years for me to make it a natural part of my flying. Slow to get stuff into my ...

Re: In the chute - Jamestown, ND

Well, it's a really long drive, especially for one person. It is a great festival, but it's a really long drive (which I've never done). You can fly into Fargo or Jamestown, but I doubt there are cheap airfares this late. Did I mention that it's pretty far?

It's held at another park across town. Not the regular kite field.
