  1. and you have even got port and starboard colors! Good solution.
  2. I’m sure John would also speak highly of Born kites Longstar 2
  3. Errol Kavanagh Memorial oval next to Canberra Cavalry ground.
  4. Thanks for everybody’s advice. Second attempt today on an oval in Canberra. Wind about 10 knots and sadly still a bit gusty but managed to launch, take straight up and land again. Still putting too much control in thinking it’s a power kite but managed to move it around a bit in the wind window. More practice required!
  5. Thanks @KaoS. That gliding forward you mentioned is exactly what appeared to happen after I had launched it about 4m straight up. I could not turn the kite and it floated forward. There are not multiple knots on my leader lines but I’ll look at the possibility of adding some to adjust break line length. Will try again when we get a stronger wind here. Thanks for the advice. I’ll get back to you all after my next flight. Cheers
  6. @nigel, @Chook, @igeighty, @AdrianB plus you other stunt kite experts! I recently took delivery of a Revolution Supersonic from Adrian. It looks a really great kite in excellent condition. I’ve been flying various power kites now for over 25 years but this is my first stunt kite. Today I took it to my local oval for a trial flight. As per usual in Canberra, winds were gusty and not consistent but blowing probably between 5 and 12 knots. I set up the kite but could only manage to launch it a few meters into the air before it either flopped forward floating to the ground or I managed to c
  7. Thanks very much @AdrianB . I’ve only ever flown these style of kites at Kingston when other EK members have got them out in the evenings or when winds were low. I’ve recently sold a number of my depower kites and my Sysmic buggy but still have a strong interest in flying kites! I’ve kept my PL buggy and 2 Born kite Longstar 2s, so I might still get some buggying done! Hence my interest in your kite for sale. Looks good. I am interested so will do a bit of research and get back to you with a PM. Any advice from @nigel and @igeighty would be appreciated
  8. Interested to see photos of the kite properly set up and photos of the lines and handles?
  9. No not mine. Interesting that this sale looks pretty close to the suburbs I live in and I’ve never seen this kit. Can only think it has not been used for some time or someone who has recently moved here
  10. @.Joel Really appreciate all the hard work you have put into this. Great job Joel. Thank you.

    Opened up EK for my usual morning browse and the format has changed! What have you done Joel? Us oldies can’t cope!
  14. @jhn.holgate congratulations on the Eccotourer. Great van! When these restrictions lift hopefully we will see you out on the open road. Our van has only moved when we moved house since Feb when we had a week on the south coast after the fires. Just sitting there waiting to get away.
