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

Flew my new B series tonight. Perfect winds, finally. Only had an hour but I could have went all night it was so much fun. Moved lines out to the ends of my top leaders and everything went well there. I feel much more confident with this kite than my smaller non-rev. I tried flic-flacs a few times ...

Flew at Busse Woods on Sunday, new all-wht rev imitation, blk/red 1.5 sle and my avatar. Wind varied from 0 to 9 every 10 minutes; blasted thermals (I actually loved them when I was flying rc gliders). Made adjustments on all of the above, practiced bicycle spins, flying backwards, and inverted hove...

Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/10-7/16

Is is the trailing edge that flutters? Maybe change the curve? I think you're right, but I'll have to make other changes as well.

Re: Who is flying what & where this week? 2011-7/10-7/16

Flew at Meinecke Park in Schaumburg just an hour ago, really lame wind, 0 gusting to 1, new build flew bueatifully. Sail still flutters even though it's stretched quite tight. Any suggestions anyone?
