Re: Where Did The Wind Go?

I caught a gust, I think. I'm not entirely sure what happened, because one minute I was flying the kite, and the next IT was flying ME. The impact with the ground and the subsequent drag (near as I can tell, about 15 or so feet) happened so fast that I'm not sure of much of anything except that I h...

Re: IKE travel to a kite festival in the UK? France? Spain?.

my 'no way in Hades' explanation... I'd go except for the following issues... job security - pretty dismal looking at this point money - we are barely hanging on... goes hand in hand with the above time - getting a week or more at my convenience is impossible right now... Jenny is self employed and ...

Re: 180GO! Fan T-Shirt help

Sorry, no time to draw on this one... Simple simple simple! Here's a thought... Think of the existing IKE shirts. Logo in the front, IKE text on the back... now... We have black shirts for the team, red shirts for 'fans' (I still hate that term). Let's not even think about what the shirts are going ...

Re: 180GO! Fan T-Shirt help

I don't care for the term 'Fan Club' either.

I personally don't think there is going to be all that much confusion this year with the team shirts being black.

I'm ALL for keeping things simple and to the point.

Re: Saw You Guys At The Naperville Kite Festival

The best place in Lisle that I've found is the park over off of Short St. near the Police department. If you take 53 to Short, go West and over the small bridge and into the parking lot on the left by the baseball diamond. Lots of room there when they don't have kids sports going on. Best if the win...

Re: New Blast & Supersonic Rods

Yep, that's what I was meaning. And then they spring back, and sort of bounce for a while in rather sickening way too! that was it! I was flying in about 5mph winds with a few gusts of 10-12... in the light winds, it handles really well. The springiness was rather disconcerting when the wind picked...

I noticed that.. The LE tends to bow towards you and it was a little unsettling when it did that the first time.

New Blast & Supersonic Rods

Revolution is now selling a Race Frame for the Blast and is testing a 4 wrap skinny LE for the Shock Wave... Somehow, I was able to get a set of each that just happened to show up today! Basically, these are skinny rods to replace the SLE on both of the kites. The existing down spars remain as is. E...

I've had virtually ZERO problems with it and it is faster, better and runs every single thing I've thrown at it and believe me, in my line of work, the software we use is pretty hard on the OS. I'm hoping the backward compatibility works well in 7. I have a DVD authoring program that is supposedly ...
