    I convinced myself that I needed this bug for when I'm travelling abroad. The bug packs down into a bag. It is of course BS. When do I ever get to go anywhere? I'm averaging about one holiday every 15 years. šŸ˜‚ Truth is, I'm a sucker for shiny rims wrapped in fat juicy tyres, so I decided to get one after seeing both Haakon and Bobby O post pictures of theirs on here. Mmmmm, shiny rims šŸ˜µ

    Thanks, Joel. The truth is, and this is strictly between you and me, it doesn't quite fit in the boot with the swan neck in that position. šŸ˜‚ I just pretended it did. No, I'd have to push the swan all the way back for it to fit but that would have ruined the effect. That's why it's already half out of the car when I go to grab it. šŸ¤£ Then of course you'd have to put the bolts in where it hinges. So not as smooth as I made it look but certainly the easest bug I've owned to assemble.

    The way that folded out from the back of the car was just brilliant! Here I am buying new rear light clusters for the buggy rack so I don't get a fine when driving with it on and you just pull this thing out of your boot and kick it Looks like you had some decent wind too, great video.

    FREE- REVO truck parts

    To complete @Parioffer above, I also have a pair of OG Revo axles up for grabs if someone is looking to get into running a revo setup šŸ˜ƒ . Plummet has a post on here about fashioning suitable bushings as well, which would be the remaining piece of the puzzle.

  14. Hey Pele. Ive used a 10 inch hub motor in a buggy, it worked great but was pretty heavy. Climbing sand dunes with a kite and full throttle front wheel spin is great. It was a gearless motor, they have no freewheel so there's some extra friction at high speed. I see there's 8in versions available now, haven't tried any. https://www.aliexpress.com/wholesale?catId=0&initiative_id=SB_20220725012117&SearchText=hub+motor+8+inch&spm=a2g0o.productlist.1000002.0 Geared is lighter and no friction but i haven't seen them in 8 inch. Could use a small geared 350w bike hub motor and replace the spokes with 3d printed wide 8in rim. Hub motors all have plain steel axles so they dont love salt water. I use a home made friction drive kit now, can keep it in a dry bag until its needed, and swap it between bike and buggy.

  16. Hello all! Now this might go unseen as I am not sure how many people may remember my father AndyFly (Andrew, Andy) who sadly passed in 2011 from a seizure. His passion was kiting, buggying, and mostly, being apart of the BrisKites & Extremekites community. On the long weekend of Easter in 2012 my family and I travelled to Yeppoon to meet with many of the kiting community as we remembered dad for who he was, alongside an event that he loved attending (with us AndyFly "maggots" joining the fun šŸ˜‚) as we scattered some of his ashes on the beach out the front of Driftwood. Our family has so many fond memories of so many different people within this community, and the joy that it their friendship brought Andrew. For the first time since 2011, my mum Linda and I have travelled to Yeppoon to spend the last few weeks remembering the adventures we use to have with dad on these kiting trips and the people that we met. We walked along the same beach today, in front of Driftwood, drawing his name once again in the sands that he once loved. I watched a kite surfer today and it reminded me of the times I use to go and kite with dad in Canberra at the Amaroo ovals at 14 years old, learning how to kite and watching dad fly through the sky in his buggy for hours. So here is a big thank you from our AndyFly family to everyone who remembers dad. To everyone who brought such strong friendships, fun, banter, love and support to dad's life. For everyone who left such kind words after he passed, and who posted such amazing pictures of dad (some of which I am only seeing for the first time ā¤ļø) We are all doing well and hold these memories of you all close to our hearts. Hope to see you in Yeppoon sometime in the future! Jess

  17. Hi All, New to land boarding and after some advice on gear. After lots of reading between the cons and pros of FB Vs Depower, I think Iā€™d like to go down the depower route long term. Do you have some recommendations on kites I should look at, and also some recommendations on control bars? I'm Tassie based, have access to both beach and inland and weigh around 100kgs. Iā€™d like to work upto being able to jump and trick when more experienced. I will also be putting tine in on a trainer kite as well. Thanks in advance for the info. Cheers, Donkey

  18. Handles or bar? Both sets of equipment have a safety mechanism where you can completely lose all power from the kite. The bar will have a "quick release" of the power lines and the kite will behave like a plastic bag in the wind. Handles will have "kite killers". In either case, the first thing you should do is to become familiar with the safety! Then you can fly with the confidence that you can easily get out out of any situation. And practice using the safety when you can, so that your confidence in the equipment grows. BobM
