Reframe 1988 TOTL Hawaiian Spin-Off using SLE
Posted 26 August 2009 - 03:57 PM
I recall the fiberglass spreaders have an outer diameter that's about the same as the SLE's inner diameter. I figure I could make something work. Thereby using the 4-Wrap SLE for something besides an office decoration. (I actually use the 3-Wrap SLE from time to time in my Vented.)
It's lighter than the fiberglass, I'm sure, but is probably far stiffer.
This is the lovely thing I'm thinking of mutilating:
Everyone wants to know what to do with those SLEs, so maybe this would be cool, and also applicable to the Team Hawaiian?

Spinoff without standoffs was my first real stuntkite. Still have one but I'm not nostalgic enough to fly it.
So many kites; so little time.

Just thinking of replacing the lower spreaders. I'd keep the original fiberglass everywhere else. (And no standoffs allowed, of course.)
I have a recollection of the standoffs transforming the Spin-Off.
What was the history on that and reference to 'not allowed'?
[Edit] Would it be possible to structure a rev sail in some way <grins> FJM
