  1. That's the one! It's in the name! 😄
  2. Jojowing still make parachutes, but they long ago stopped making kites: http://www.old.jojowing.com/powerkiting/products.php Very kind of them to leave the old site up, though! I thought Elliot would have gone the way of the dodo, but no, they're still producing kites while far better-known brands have fallen by the wayside... https://shop.elliot.de/shop/liste/-4039000DBL/1.htm Does anyone remember the name of those cheap, patchily manufactured, but-when-you-got-a-good-un-it-was-good kites with the zebra stripes and red pattern? They only ever came in that design. Popular around 2010 maybe.
  3. "The shit", or just "shit"?
  4. ...and when your lid has had a knock, you bin it, right? Lids are not for life, they're for Christmas. That doesn't mean you should scrimp, it just means you might have to write off that hundred quid purchase sooner than you think. Don't trust your head to a lid that's had a knock and don't buy second hand lids.
  5. Being rude about asking for features on a free resource is really going to make people want to help you. Why not ask nicely, and offer to help with implementation or testing?
  6. I was a subscriber for a few years and enjoyed the amateurishly-written trip reports, but the reviews were a joke. They were too beholden to their advertisers to really say it how it is for any gear they reviewed. I'm amazed they lasted as long as they did.
  7. Just like my daily commute to work. See how many GoPros you can see flying off at various points.
  8. What do you call those balls? Is that a bit of chandlery too?
  9. Hi folks - For the record, there are the prices which the kites finally sold for on eBay. Postage in most cases was around EUR35. In retrospect, I ought to have specified free shipping, trusting buyers to bid up a little higher and assuming that it'd be enough to cover postage. Scrub Vapour Mountain Board - hardly used EUR112.50 Ozone Access 2 8 square metre power kite RTF EUR280.00 Ozone Access XC 4 square metre power kite RTF EUR325.00 eBay charged me just over USD100 in fees, which was a surprise. Signing off! Good winds! regards Ben
  10. Hi folks - For the record, there are the prices which the kites finally sold for on eBay. Postage in most cases was around EUR35. In retrospect, because of the cost of postage from Ireland, I ought to have specified free shipping, trusting buyers to bid up a little higher and assuming that it'd be enough to cover postage. Ozone Cult 6.5 square metre power kite RTF EUR 96.50 Ozone Samurai II 2.0 two square metre power kite RTF EUR 41.50 Ozone Samurai 1 three square metre power kite RTF EUR 59.15 Scrub Vapour Mountain Board - hardly used EUR112.50 Ozone Samurai II 5.0 square metre power kite RTF EUR 96.50 eBay charged me just over USD100 in fees, which was more than I expected.
