#93245 Have 1.5 SLE. But... not as stable/precise as I would like. How about B Ser...

Hi MarshallPlacid ,

 

Have you been flying long? I found it took many hours on the lines to Start getting the hang of Quad.

I know I am not the fastest learner, But don't expect too much  too soon.

 

Also have you watched all of the Videos that JB has done. Heaps of great tips in there.

 

Now for my personal experience.

I find that Using a vented kite in stronger wind is less "twitchy" than a Standard Kite in the lower winds.

But this is caused by a more continuous sail pressure, I think.

 

Keep up the practice, and experiment with different methods and setups.

It will come to you.  :)

#93186 Supersonic Stack Advice

Posted by West Australian on 02 July 2013 - 07:28 PM

We Did It !!!!

 

With the Help of my Co-Flyer Rob, we got the Supersonic Stack Flying.

I think the wind was a bit light for it.

Most of the flight time I was moving backwards to keep them in the air.

It got very hard keeping the sails loaded, wind was too light.

 

When the Wind came up the Stack flew fast, but felt controllable.

I have not flown my Sonics in a while and I did not feel comfortable with them.

Lots of oversteer.

It will take a few flights to get back in the swing.

 

 

Rob did some great flying on them too.

Hopefully he will post about his own experiences

Thank you sir...

 

Yep smallest at the front...

 

I also have a dream of stacking all of Rob's 1.5 sized kites with mine :)




#93053 Supersonic Stack Advice

Well Rob, if the wind is gusting over 25kmh, I was going to use you as my test pilot anyway. ;)

I also need to make sure I bring my Landboard along too

 

It is a good thing I have a few sets then.

Good to hear it is a LE ratio thing, it makes sense

 

I am VERY excited to try these out.

Black/Purple/Gold and Blue/Pink/Gold will look nice together.

Awesome Wayne,

 

Thanks for sharing.

I like to mix it up, keep the old kites fresh.




#92819 What's your favorite time to fly?

Posted by West Australian on 23 May 2013 - 04:44 PM

Any Free time, is the best time to fly.

Wind or no wind.

 

Dawn and Dusk are great though.

Less people around.

 

 

Great to hear you caught some air Rob.

Sweet Pictures Bro,
