Assembled Kite

Postby Robbie » Fri, Dec 19 2014, 09:36 PM

Guy's, Is it alright to leave your kite assembled while at the house? I was wondering if it would hurt anything. I have friends that come over every now and then and was hoping that it would catch there eye. Trying to think of ways for exposure for the sport here at the house. Thanks

Take the end caps off so you don't stretch out your bungees and sail material, takes seconds to put them back on. Don't keep it in direct sunlight or a room that is very bright. This will fade the colors. Otherwise, no issues.

Mark's right about the bungies . . . .

Plus it make it easy to set up on the flying field (assuming it fits in the car assembled). I have a station wagon, so I have been known to leave them assembled between flying days . . . .

Got handles yet? :-D

Thanks for the help guy's!!! I think I will just store it in the bag and when people ask me about it I will set it up and show it to them. :-D

The handles arrived today. Now if I can get a decent day I'm ready to start learning how to fly the Rev. :up:

Probably still a bit too cold . . . . . hope you can get out soon. I think about this thread when I come in through the garage. I "accidentally" left some kites assembled out there when I was taking some pictures, and they've been that way for a few weeks now . . . need to take them apart (but it's too cold out there).
