Thanks for letting us know! Wish I could make it, but I don't have enough free time right now. Some year I will make it - indoor flying is one of the things I had hoped to work on this winter, but it didn't happen. Of course . . . . that means . . . . I "need" an indoor kite ;)

P.S. - I added it to the IKE Calendar.

This is only a couple hours from me but ironically I'll be in the Chicago area that day.
I decided I needed a signature line, so I wrote this.

I'll try to get some pix & video of us indoor flail-ers, I mean flyers.
I recently made a couple of glider kites based on the Emong... it's in the Into the Wind catalog and website. Roughly a 1 meter spine x 3'10" wide using 3mm dia. carbon rods. I scaled some pictures of it to get the dimensions. I also made a 1/2 scale version.

Good to hear it! I don't think I will ever be confused with smooth, especially on an indoor . . . . ;)
