Looks great!...

questions... did you make the tails and drogue? How long are those tails?

Hows the pull? Will it be a decent lifter?

It has about 20-30lbs of pull(guessing). The drouge is just an 8x12 bag to store the kite and tails in. I think the tails are about 12', I forgot to post pics of the tails :oops:

All I did was use the scrap pieces I had left over. This is similar to the technique I used- http://www.kite.com/kite/miscpics/gradtail/gradtail.htm

As for lifting things, small line laundry, tails and spinsocks, probably could handle a messenger too!

I guess I'm gonna have to build one in order to fly all the sky crap I'll end up building.... :up:

BTW, I'm sorry I missed your call... was watching Blues Clues with Elie and didn't hear it ring... and I really wanted to see it too....!
