Friend Pete had a nearly new unvented B sail that did not set so well and decided to do something with it

I can't believe you/your friend did that! :w00t:

(sorry grape juice = loose tongue) :blush:

Hope it's good in the winter winds!

Perhaps it was grape juice to blame for the kite, just drunken vandals over here :lol:
David it flys really well, surprised me how well, hovers rock solid in any orientation, it took ages for me to paint that picture and it never moved...a bit
Stays, reinforcing strips sewn along the line of the uprights to kill sail stretch, just like Bri's vented Sedgwick has over the mesh ;)

Not sure ... with all the snow you've been getting, it could be cabin fever. Will it get off the ground in anything less that a gale force four wind? Well, I suppose you do need something to hold the rods together. Shouldn't fly it with the kids around ... looks a little naughty. Probably should name it Cabaret Dancer.

Or was "WADA YA THINK" a retorical question?

And here all I want next is a simple mid-vent kite ...

Cheers,
Tom

It looks sort of agressive, in a kite type of way.

Hope it flys as well as it looks.

I am sure it will.

I like the way you can still see the Rev 1.5 SLE bit on the middle. Although it is heavily vented.

Nice job Bruce, I be it flies as good as it looks.

No Problem Pal.Its in the Bag

I csn say,it flys so,so well.Flew in a 30/32MPH Today and it was awsome,outstanding and looks superb.Would have taken Loads more.Im so impressed with the kite after Today.Flew it down to about 12/14mph when the winds dropped and it was SWEET as a Nut.

Thank You Bruce,,,,

Looks good Bri.

Of course it might not behave as well for you. :nopity:

After all Bruce is a REAL good pilot. :plane

Still with any luck you might be able to make it take off and land OK.

Promise not to laugh at Ant too much if you get a chance to let him fly it though. :sign_oops:
