Re: new adventure

It's inevitable, you know......teacher.......apple.......big apple........the progression is only natural, and expected.

Good luck to both of you on your new venture. Will you be flying tomorrow at Montrose?

Re: November 1, 77 degrees!

And a dual-line at that. Wow!

Of course, I spent the day at work.

Re: Flying Saturday 10/22 or Sunday 10/23?

It was good to see and fly with the Busse regulars, Steve Anderson and his wonderful wife and his Dad (84 years old) and his son David Anderson, David Illescas and AdventureDog, Edmond Dragut, Bill Meier, Karl Kitemeister (whose real last name I can't remember), and a couple of new guys, Shawn, and ...

Re: August 20, Pontiac club fly

Really great photos and video. The time lapse is hilarious! It would be cool to compress the entire day into a two-minute video, wide angle, showing the whole field and all kites and fliers. Shari's Cody looks even better in person. Those of you who missed it, well, I guess you missed it. Good day w...

Re: August 20, Pontiac club fly

I'm guessing the field is the Rec Complex west of the baseball diamonds.

Re: Finally made it to IKE

It's nice to have you on the IKE forum also. IKE is not limited to Illinois flyers, although it is based here. You'll probably recognize my avatar from the other kite forums, and will probably see a few other ones that are familiar. Some of the club members make it to Wildwood each year, so you may ...

Re: Kaixuan Kite 11-ft Centipede

The spars are really quite good. The sewing leaves a bit to be desired, and lack of hot-cutting the panels will allow almost immediate fraying, but the motion of the sail in flight will be delightful. I just realized I have no flying line for SLK's, so I'll need to get some. I was captivated by the ...

Kaixuan Kite 11-ft Centipede

I bought two of these, one red one pink. They're cCc (cheap Chinese crap), but they're really cool when flying.
