Re: Light wind kite

Welcome to the club young Dan! Hope we get you up to some of our flys now and then. And we'll save you a nice spot at the IKE club lounge at Grand Haven.

My latest is a Della Porta, about 3' x 4', with a fuzzy tail. Spars are two 60" .2540 pultruded carbons that I had around. I sized the kite around the spars so I wouldn't have to cut them. It was overcast today,but here's its inaugural fly: [albumimg]31[/albumimg] for those who've made fuzzy ta...

I guess I'll take the cold, because there are a bunch for great festivals here from April thru October. We'll be putting them on the calendar and going to these as a club. Next year will be ...

Re: Line weight
