Thanks for posting. Nice, but a bit small for a kite festival - those Wisconsin Kiters put on a bigger show on one of their slow weekends! We should get ABC to cover our retreat (we just need an octopus or two . . . ).

Just like Americans, eh? It's always about the size!

Yeah, I guess. But I figured if ABC was going to cover it, it was going to be a huge festival. Still, props to KV for sharing.

I was hoping to fly soon. Need to aquire some hard land stakes whick i am making right now. Gomberg reccomends about 80' of 800# - 1000# line and i picked that up today. tomorrow looked good, but they are talking gusts up to 30 mph. I dont think first flight conditions will be optimal. I will post here when it will debut.

Dont know if many SLK'rs have ever seen the Hoffman Bow Kite, but aquired one of those in Blue and white also set to debut soon. Sounds like tomorrow morning early i might be able to fly the quad for a bit.

Yeah, I was just joking about the "slud"

GIS'd the Hoffman, that is one cool looking kite!
