Furthermore, isn't it illegal that so far there aren't any piccies of The Flying Squad from last weekend at either Rougham or Portugal ?! :lol:

We were too busy flying in Moledo to take pictures. There were three quad teams there, us, Quad PT and Imagina. We flew ballets back to back both days. On Saturday we flew 6 different ballets and a mega team. Sunday was a little better and we managed to teach the other two teams our Daydream in Blue ballet. We flew it in the mega team and it looked awesome.

Imagina and Quad PT are excellent fliers and it was an honour and a privilege to fly with them. oh and if you go to Portugal and some one offers you a clear drink from an unmarked bottle it's probably best to say no. It is certainly advisable to say no to the second one and run like the wind when they pour the third one. If you don't follow this advice you will be doomed anyway and so the fourth is not going to make it any worse! hic....

Anyway, here is the one photo I did take.

Fantastic you all got to fly so much.... I'm daydreaming in blue... :blue-sleepy:

Mighty fine piccie, good to see the big devils again... :)

I still live in hope that Pedro will come over to UK again with a big devil.
I think the Devil eats too many pies or summat and costs too much at excess baggage weigh in :lol:

Did I mention I had a small It business?? sounds like some computers for dummies meet up's could be required in exchange for some rev training??

Easy answer ... buy a Mac!!

Pic re-posted below see if it helps (sorry Stephen hope you don't mind)

Nice try Jonesey, but as is common when IT people try and solve a problem, it still doesn't work! So no flying lessons for you then.

Nice kites Stephen! Really nice. If jonesey would like to see the squad in the flesh, and who wouldn't ;), I believe you will be at basingstoke in a couple of weeks.

You are welcome Stephen,
They came out really great . Can't wait to see them in action at Bristol later in the Year.
Here are a few pictures from during the making process. Before they went to the factory for finish work.

The new kites arrived with me today and I have spent the last hour looking at them all.


Hello Stephen,
Beautiful New Kites !
I was looking at them also, and I would like to know where is the vented serie with this type of design ?

Bonjour Sabine :)
I was thinking the same thing.

Have you experimented with star shape vents on your FLIC kites ? :lol:

Hehe... Andy is head and shoulders above the rest of us!

Mind you , it took the commentator a whole day to work out that there was a 'chapesse' amongst the 'chaps' as he referred to TFS...

Back to topic:
As Stephen has said before, this is the only way that he can get people to fly with him, by giving out cool kites to people... :kid_devlish:

the old kites still get used (although mine have been so abused it's a wonder it's still in one piece) The venting is another project entirely. I am alos working on some ideas for the SUL version. All that extra material weighs a lot so the upper wind range is higher but so is the bottom wind range.

Watch this space for more kites soon.

That's a very striking design! I was wondering if that grey Moggie ever gets up to mischief with the ripstop? :o
