They are good toys and a wonderful company to work with...

'Keep on playing' is what I would say to everyone and keep the world in perspective.

When that photo was taken the FLIC guys were really 'goofing' around to a funky track
and "chicken" (?) was faux hit by all the FLIC kites :lol:

this was letting off steam before the mega fly on Sunday afternoon.

The seams are clearly visible or at least I presume that they are not printed...

I understood that it was structural and that stress degradation was built in to prolong the effective utilisation window and to improve interim performance.

I was amused by comments about single panel configurations but appalled by everyone being let loose on a blank canvas.

When I had a good long look at them at Berck, they were definitely stitched seams.

They are not printed.

The new sails are 'built' with individual panels just like the Bazzer pro-Bs.
Not one section of black, but many panels especially on the standard sails.
So naturally the seams are noticeable.

I've exagerated the colour balance, brightness contrast and shadow to try and show the seams up more, in a pic here

I'm surprised no one has mentioned the extra weight of the thread for all these tiny panels :kid_devlish:

That's a lot of extra sewing :blue_wink:

I LOVE the look of seams (panels) on an all black sail, always have... Reminds me of a tattoo or something.

I can't wait to seeing the all of the printed sails to see what everyone comes out with.
There are so many artistic people out there who have just been waiting for this opportunity.
Well done Rev , Pedro and Estaban for making it possible.
However for flight performance they will not compare with The B Pro's.
It's all about the performance of the sail. We have worked allot on the grain direction and panel layout on the B Pros to load the sail perfectly.
It was a pleasure working with Flic on there kites. To turn The B Pro layout into a Flic Feel was so much fun.
I agree Chocy all the things people worry about. That thread is a real anchor. :kid_devlish: :devil:

Wow! This is amazing technology - I've heard of "sky hooks" and now we have "sky anchors" - to prolong the hover in all directions? :devil:
