#91842 First rev flight.

Posted by SparkieRob on 02 March 2013 - 04:27 AM

Wow! My first flight was a year ago today! I sounded like a total noob. I don't get out as much as I'd like to but I'm still loving every minute of air time. To celebrate, I did a little bit of short line work on my front lawn! Kids absolutely loved it!!!

Thanks Guys...

The Purple Vented had a 4 wrap.
The Lime Mid Vent had 3 Wrap
and the Blue Standard had a 3 Wrap.

I'll pit yours against mine, in a duel sir! Dueling stacks, that with freak out the early morning runners....

Can't wait!

#91800 Short Lines in Moderate winds for Tight Spaces

Posted by SparkieRob on 26 February 2013 - 11:34 PM

I was out this week with West Australian and the wind died for a bit, so I pulled out my newly made up 30 footers (give or take a foot). Saddled up the good old EXP with a 2 frame and took it for a spin. WOW WOW WOW! Being up close and personal like that is a real buzz! Just working it around was great fun. I thought I'd have a crack at some 3D work. Now THAT is cool! Catch and throws on 30's now is one of my favorite things. Swapped set ups with Ian and had a go on his Std with #50 x 50's, after a bit of practice I got a couple to work on that as well. Great morning light wind flying all round!

Can't wait to try my B2 on these shorties!

#91697 Frames in progressively vented sail stacks

Posted by SparkieRob on 17 February 2013 - 07:43 PM

It should not matter at the back.

It will be awesome to get the stacks in the air together.

But who's going to take the photos?

We'll make Kev do that!!

Light wind is hard work, but GREAT practice. Getting it to work in light winds gives a real sense of achievement and a real buzz.

Every shift I'm a little closer. If I don't make it to Redcliffe, I'm dragging the family to the states for my (our) 40th. There's bound to be something on. Oh, that and Disney Land!

 

Ian, I'll be getting tips from you soon.

This should help with those rods that are the older ones.

It was great to finally stand in my, our, own line and have more than one kite it the air. Talk about fun!
Great that I could help and that I could give a few tips. Nothing like having someone to share it with.

#91274 Rev B2

Posted by SparkieRob on 30 December 2012 - 04:27 PM

Since getting my B2 Standard, I have been neglecting all my other kites. It's first out and last back. With the 2 frames, 2 & 3 wrap, it will fly in almost any wind. And it is sooooooo much fun to fly. If you can, have a go on one in some good wind. I LOVE mine in 30km/h plus!

#91156 "B" series vs. "B" series pro

Posted by SparkieRob on 19 December 2012 - 05:51 PM

I think that B Series kites are a little light on the right wing, this is corrected when Bazza signs them.....

#91088 Upgrade coming!

Both Kitelife and here, I had to keep logging in when using Tapatalk. On IPB Mobile, Kitelife was all good. Now I don't have to keep re-logging in. There was an update for Tapatalk just before all this happened.
Glad it's all going again.
