Re: Flame Quad

The paint is holding up pretty well. You have to be careful not to get it too thick or it will crack. It has started to crack a little where the kite folds, but once it is assembled, it looks great. It was painted in September of 2004.

We used 3/4 oz ripstop nylon and Craft Master paint in a spray can. Penny Lingenfelter put us onto the paint. She paints her old Revs when they become faded.

Flame Quad

Thought this might be of interest to some. Lynn and I decided to combine our love of hot rods and quad line kites. We cut two quad blanks, one white, one black. We laid out the flames on butcher paper then traced them onto the white blank. I then painted the areas of the flames using yellow, red an...

Re: *NEW DOG.STK. DESIGN*

Hector I'm affraid so. Eric Wilson has been flying for some years. His dog stake looked several years old and has had lots of use. It is very much like yours, but welded to a steel stake and can be driven two or three feet into the ground. His rings are all in a row, and quite close together. Probab...

Re: *NEW DOG.STK. DESIGN*

Hector Your design is very much like one I used last June at Fairview Park in Costa Mesa. It was made by Eric Wilson. I flew his RevI using 200" lines. That makes for a wide window, making it a little easier to learn. I flew for about half an hour and was still not comfortable standing behind t...

Re: *IKE, THE RED BARON."

Hector, that funny word is supposed to be anxious. I had Mrs. Hunt for typing in High School. She was a very good teacher, but I was not such a good student. :-)

You bet I'll fly it. I'm anxios to see what I can make that red airplane do. I have not seen that picture before, but I remember it being taken at Seal Beach in February 2006.

Your new quad is really something. I can't wait to see it in the air at the kite party.

Re: Dogstaking

Babbman A while back in Crescent City, Barresi had a dog stake set up on the beach with a Rev I. The lines weren't very long, perhaps 100' which is like flying on 50'. I found it very confusing and a great way to loose some teeth if you're not careful. Only tried it for a short time and thought it b...

And yes, Lolly does has known for a year and a half that Lynn and I make our own sails. Now Joe, Lolly's brother, knows that we make sails as he was flying with all of us in S...

Re: Homebuilt Rev

Last August I flew a six stack of 54 inch homebuilt Revs. Bob Serack of Astoria Oregon made a 24 stack, but had trouble keeping it all together so he broke it up into smaller stacks. The stack I flew was on 130 foot lines. My wife was also able to fly the stack. It flies very well. Jim :revspin:
