Re: Club Fly - August 6th?

If you haven't already been there go to the rev forum "modifications" , click french bridle. Very interesting, and the way I understand it, the increased lift more than compensates for the added weight. In addition they say axels, flic-flacs, float and other things become "no brainers...

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/31 - 8/6/

Flew my full-vent Phantom at Montrose Harbor yesterday. Alden couldn't make it, so I flew alone until this big, grey, ominous cloud started moving over me from the northwest. Winds were strong from the south/southeast, shifting constantly, gusting and disappearing. Alden, you didn't miss a thing. Ho...

Re: Club Fly - August 6th?

If anyone who's coming to the 8-6 fly has a French bridle + magic sticks set-up, I'd love to try it. (yes, guilty of being all over the rev site) Tons of info that'll take much time to assimilate; hope I live long enough!

See you at the fly. Have we decided on the location yet?

Re: Forum Etiquette

Thanks for the input, I was reluctant to do it, and now I'm sure I shouldn't. Neat forum there, lot's of tweaking info. I'm in heaven.

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/31 - 8/6/

Drove south yesterday and make it all the way to Kankakee. Had "chocoholic" blizzard at the Dairy Queen (good stuff, after 2.5 hours of scenic-route driving). I took my laptop with and posted that I was flying at Limestone Park, and, I'll swear on a stack of bibles, "Darkspark" w...

Bumping the thread up again . . . so far we have me, Captain, Darkspark (possible), and Makatakam. Did anyone get a chance to check out the South Green Belt Forest Preserve? Captain - where's your Improv group? Downtown? I flew at Limestone Park in Kankakee yesterday. Intended to check it out on th...

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/24-7/30

Well, I headed south on 53 from Schaumburg to 113 south to Kankakee. I'm sitting at a picnic table in Limestone Park if anyone wants to join me. Wind is 0-4mph right now.

Re: Fly near chicago - 7/31

All the leaves on all the trees are moving here in Schaumburg,
Let's get going, the wind is blowing,
And the last line of this poem don't rhyme.

Pick a card spot, any card spot.

I'm getting into my car now and heading south. Call 847-340-0366 and I'll join you.

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/31 - 8/6/

I clicked the link to the rev site and got there, but I saw that I could not post (small print somewhere near the bottom I think), and I looked for some way to register so that I could. Found nothing, gave up and posted what you saw on the IKE forum.

Re: How to post a link in a thread

Ok, yeah, sure, no problem. Do you believe you're dealing with an internet idiot? Wait a minute. Yes, I am. Duh.

If we get around to flying today, I'll bring my laptop.

You can buy bricks for just a little bit more at Home Depot. They're a 100 times larger, but unfortunately, 1000 times heavier! :rotfl

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/24-7/30

I went to the QC RAGBRAI today. It's 10:20 pm now. Just came through the door 5 minutes ago. I was the only one to set any quad-lines; the other guys pretty much had their hands full trying to keep the flexifoils up. I helped a bit now and then getting them back up. The wind was blowing from the sou...

Re: Who is flying what, where and when this week 7/24-7/30

Flew today at Busse Woods, full vent Phantom, 1.5 blk/red sle, both on 90#x120', Symphony 1.4 (dual line foil) on 70#x90' and my "white bat" (quad line) on 90#x85'. Damn, I love flying the Symphony; fastest little foil in the West, East, North and South. Turns on a dime and is easily recov...
