  5. Sweet! That looks soooooo professional compared to my Rube Goldberg contraption!
  6. Finished mine today That it all made up now. Have put Handlebar Tape Non-Slip Shock-Absorbent on the handle part here's a couple more pictures of it together and broken down.
  7. $125 +postage Brand New from the Peter Lynn factory in NZ. This was purchased as a spare, but has never even been unfolded in the years I have had it, so it’s time to move it along to someone who wants it. These kites are the fastest arcs ever produced and are legendary. Kite only. No bag. No spars. No pigtails/leaders Spars can be made from fibreglass tent poles and I can supply measurements for making pigtails.
  8. $300 +postage Peter Lynn Synergy 12m (kite and bag only) Great condition. All original zips still work. Original spars Original bag Canopy material is still bright colours and crispy fabric.
  9. FREE!!!!! NOT COMPLETE PARTS/MATERIAL ONLY DOES NOT FLY! If anyone wants an 18m Phantom to cut up and copy the wing profiles, just pay the postage and it’s yours. This was a 2nd hand kite that I got a while ago. But after replacing the zips, I found that the webbing is breaking down and it’s not safe to fly. I have removed the new zips and one wingtip to make a bit of wall art for my kite storage room. The rest of the kite is there and would be perfect for someone wanting to learn/copy the secret wing profile of the legendary phantom.
  10. Nice one mate. Portable and lightweight. @Chook would be proud of your ingenuity.
  11. Hi. Got mine tested a few weeks ago, and then made a few permanent modifications. The first image shows the whole thing 'packed up' (small enough to fit in the bag on my buggy). Then it is shown released but not assembled. Then there are images of the various parts of it ready to use. I changed the rods from being four rods long to being three. That still seems to be long enough, and reduces any bending when going downhill. At the 'handle' end you have the choice of the handle to grab, or a couple of shoulder slings. And pulling it along by the shoulder slings is so easy that I'm unlikely to use the handle much. To fit it all I have to do is (push the rods forward in the sleeve and) tie the straps to the buggy foot pegs. This should make it flexible enough to be able to fit it to any buggy.

  13. Hi Barry Pardoe am in the process of making one out of 15mm aluminum pipe. Use a pipe bender make in the shape I want. Not finished it yet have to get a bolt lathe down to 13mm so it will fit inside the pipe. It breaks down into three parts. Here's two photos of it. More photos when it's finished.
  14. Hello, I'm sorry for late reply. Are you still interested?
  15. Great, Thanks for your reply, havent seen it before... so how is the ride without kite, for windless days with only 350W I guess its slow and only on flat? And how friction works? You made any video? I have home spots not acceseble with car so i have to pull buggy long way to get to clearance and and back so wouldnt it be nice just to ride with buggy there... Chers David
  16. We're booked in, 21st-28th. Need a name for this one, thinking it should be called 'shoulda boughta buggy' for all the new puff-karters. Apparently even @The Duke is now riding between safety rails.... I wonder if they put pool noodles over those things too... 😂
  17. A few years back we had Trevor from Canberra come and have a buggy on the field. the kites are inside the local horse track. And there is a massive area for any kind of kites. I will see you there. Look for the yobbo with the mullet. PS al the fields are bright yellow at the moment. Making a surrea backdrop for any kites. hope to see you there Matt. It’s been a while
  18. Got a few questions if you don’t mind Jason. I have a large 2 string I think around 1.5 with good strings and I have also been given an old surf kite with several bars and strings. If I make 4 matching lines/lengths ,do you think they will be ok or will surf kite strings be to heavy? I realise I will need different handles and should be able to make something up from aluminium. If you think strings will be ok, how much do you want for the kite please?
