Got out a pair of handles I don't use much today (They have extra long top tails so I use them in higher winds). Sure enough the rings started to pull out. Will be attacking them with pliers tomorrow - 2.99 from B&Q

hello,

Here my Christmas gift ... I played a bit with the resin and Dremel. I am inspired by the latch and nuts Prism is an effective solution. I change my settings very quickly. I have no problem with brakes that tangle. Already a few hours and not worry visibly wear friction across nodes.

Otherwise, my first bet of revo 1.5 with a modified tube 12mm anodized aluminum. To keep the tube on the stainless steel handles, I can simply force (see no evil) at the elbow that can begin to ready the bottom of the foam.

~Now this is a nice idea. I would like to see another photo of the leaders after you have flown with them some more please.

Alain, do you still fly the morpho (i think it was called) the split centre quad line kite that tricks like a dual liner?

Hello Stephen,
Yes I would do pictures after the season to see viellisement.
If you speak of Morpho, quadlines, yes I still work but very slowly.

When I removed my clips I inserted a plastic Rawlplug in each end of the handles. Then a round head screw into the Rawlplugs. Make sure you use screws not threaded right to the head. Leave 2 or 3mm of clearance between Rawlplug and screwhead. Feed the cords through the end caps, lark headed the cord to the raised screws and ightened the screws as necesssary and replace the end caps.

I did mine over 2 years ago and have been using them ever since without problems, the lip at the top of the Rawlplugs protects the cord from any sharp edges on the ends of the tube and once you tighten the screws any movement is negligible and without movement there is no wear.

Just in case "Rawlplug" doesn't translate across the Atlantic click here.


Just finished modifying my handles exactly this way!! Works like a charm!! Now to test them out in some good wind off the Oregon coast, and see if they hold up under the conditions!!! Only changed the length by 1/2" overall, since I'm not a pro (yet) I doubt I will notice any difference!!!

Just got back and those handles worked beautifully!!! Will be using this method on more after they made it through this session!!! Thanks for the inspiration to tinker with what is a great idea!!! :) Also just used them on a light wind day and they were great !! Put a race frame in my old Rev 1 and turned a so -so day into a learning adventure!!!
