Re: July 30th - Impromptu fly with lots going on

Will we be flying at Centennial Park? Looks awfully small from the satellite view.

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

Flew today at Turner Park in Roselle, Supersonic, 1.5sle, and my ex-white ul home-made rev. Squirrely winds in that park, don't know why I keep going back there. Was there for about two hours 'til dark. May have novice joining the dark side. He was amazed you could do that with a kite. Wrote dowm so...

Cool! Very kite-like in the way it hovers! i collect fossils and have a lot of cephalopod fossils. Many i have, from the Silurian period, are well over 400 million years old. i have both coiled and straight forms... and semi-coiled too. They've been around for a very long time! :mrblue: Hi, Tom. :c...

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

Flew today at Busse Woods as I mentioned in the "Who is flying..." thread from last week. Home-made rev that's pictured there, used to be all-white, got un-white during the weekend rains. Broke it again in 6-7 mph wind towards evening, flying on 85'x50#. Switched to my other ul home-made w...

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

Well . . . where I am had mostly rain all day. There was a break mid afternoon, so I went out to fly for a bit. Vented 1.5 on 3 wraps and 120s . . . and it was WAAAAYYYYY too much wind for that kite. I was having a fun time . . . until the cloudburst. Soaked to the core, wrapping up the lines in bl...

Wendy: cool! Photos! Mark: nice looking kite! What's it made out of? Mike, It's made of kitebuilding materials -- seriously though, it's ripstop poly on a rev race frame, with stick-pen end caps. That's the all-white ultralight I built before. It got un-white during the weekend rains. Decided that ...

Thanks, Steve. Thanks, Mike.

I'll try to get the camera software into my laptop today and give it try, or figure out a way to link my laptop to my android phone.

Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/17-7/23

Flew yesterday evening at Busse Woods. Winds were steady at 0 - 1/2 with an occasional gust to 2 mph. Tried to fly the blk/red 1.5 sle on 85'x50# and got it up in the air briefly two or three times in the gusts. Pulled out my low-wind home-made revs and flew them on 50'x50# and the 85'x50# lines and...

Re: Rev, beach, stones . . .

He flies incredibly well with amazing precision; almost as well as I flew all night long. (had my eyes closed, snored a bit)

What country is he from? Is that Belgium?

Re: Kite Bags/How to carry ?

I'm ready for a second bag. My first one is a 60" with shoulder strap and cinch straps at both ends made by premier. It holds all my early kites, but it's too short for duallies unless I break down the leading edge spars, and it has no pockets for lines or handles. I've seen the roll-up bags th...
