GREAT FUN, thanks for posting these! :)

I especially love the mega fly video...
The fellow in the orange shirt had me on the edge of my seat, really started to dial in as the video went on, nice work.
For the first couple of minutes though, I'm pretty sure his drawers were a tad damp. :D

Hello Ant, the videos were worth the wait. Awesome job! :clap;
Just glad you got vid of my 3-stack before the #3 kite center rod snapped.

note to self: check ALL frames to make sure what each kite has BEFORE launching.

John - I like to provide some entertainment :) I'm ashamed I was so sloppy, but in my defense I was the only one on a full vent - It had been flying fine all day and then the wind dropped just as we went out! It was that or the EXP, and I think the EXP would have been a better choice...

David - Shame I didn't catch the snap - that was quite spectacular and I'd only just stopped filming when it happened!

Great videos. Wish I had been there; I could have kept the guy with the orange shirt company. Scawy, vewy, vewy scawy.

:D :ani_giveup: :clap;
