In Topic: removing excess color

06 October 2011 - 09:33 AM

I know alot of you may disagree with this post but one time i has an issue with getting "bag bleed" from a damp kite bag bleeding color onto my Prism power kite. It stained the white areas with black magic marker looking stains. I called Prism and they recommened i try a product called "K2R". You can fiind it on the internet but my local hardware had it in stock. They use it for marine purposes, etc. It is in an aerosol can with a fine brush on top and comes out almost like a spray powder. Believe it or not it worked well getting off all of the stains and did not damage the material. The said that they use it all the time when they clean kites for customers. Hope this helps anyone.......

In Topic: Zen 1. impressions

I'm hoping to get an Indoor Rev for Christmas *wink wink, nudge nudge* After watching the Singapore vids JB posted, the Indoor looks like the way to go when there is 0-wind outdoors.


my order of attack goes 0-2 mph indoor rev, 3-6 mph Zen, 7+ mph 1.5 series, 12+ vented. Sounds a bit routine now that i look at it on paper but for the most part if there is hardly any wind at all or no wind or some swirly light wind the indoor flies great outside and the new frame they come with is fatter than the old style so they are made quite a bit stronger. If the winds are light to steady, ill get the 1.5 out and see what i can do but if i struggle with keeping it aloft, then i pull out the trusty Zen and it never lets me down. The Zen flys in some pretty bad wind conditions in my own expierence and handles diffrently but much the same. I was uncertain about my Zen at first but it has been my go to kite in horrible wind condtions and never dissapoints me. Like john said to me...." I am glad you found some Zen".

Hi badinfluence-

Sounds like a great festival.

You said lots of stacks...I'm pretty sure that this is Lee Sedgwick's "playground". It's always special to watch the best pilots in the world in action. Lee is, definitely, one of the best!

Enjoy!

Next year, please post this festival a lot sooner to give folks a chance to decide and make plans. Thanks! Posted Image



I will take some video of Lee to post for all, if i can "coax" him to get a stack out. A few weeks ago when i went up, the winds were too high to fly a stack so he was kite surfing instead. Supposed to be 7 mph winds which is looking good! Again, sorry for the last minute. I am glad to see there is an interest which if planned right could make for more organized flys in the upcoming months with some long distance friends!

My apologies for not posting earlier. I just recently learned it is importaint to take a "pro active" position in the kiting world. Would have been an honor and a surprise to all. Thank you for your thoughts.

man..... i loved every minute of this video. Amazing control demonstration, beautiful rev, awesome camera shot, artistic setting. Made me smile, made me laugh. Got the illusion that the kite looked like a animal flying on its own. Loved wthe way you worked around the camera and the rock. Thank you!!!
