I've used this to take them on airplanes.  Not one gives it a second look.


In Topic: Difference between EXP and B-Series

11 June 2014 - 05:19 PM

My two cents from someone who's been flying semi-regularily for about two years.  I've never flown an EXP, but I do have an SLE that I'd usually fly with the thinner 3-wraps (not the SLE).  I can tell a difference between my SLE and the way my various B series kites fly.

 

That said, I couldn't tell you exactly WHAT that difference is, other then they feel ... different.  It's a good different, but my skills aren't anywhere near the point where I could detail it.  ... or probably fully appreciate it for that matter. :)

Where do you live, SlyDancer? I'm in Holland quite a bit over the summer.

Reviving an old topic ... I'm staying at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco next week near Sue Bierman park.  I won't have a lot of time while I'm in town, but I was hoping there might be some place close (walking distance ideally) I could fly for a few hours on Sunday morning, or a bit during the evenings?  Any suggestions?

Percy,

Where in the Netherlands are you? I'm going to be spending some time in Germany (Papenburg, about 45 mins from Groningen) this summer and would be happy to show you a few things. I'm far from an expert, but I could at least get you started. :)
