  1. Would you be able to post the kitewing?
  2. yeh was nice to see lots of kites together there, although would have been a lot easier if everyone camped in one place!
  3. Im a student, going into my 4th year to get my masters in aerospace engineering, then hopefully be a comercial pilot, or an air traffic controller
  4. Very interesting idea, but with air traffic increasing all the time I can see some conflicts occuring
  5. Its going to be flying at the Farnborough air show (18th, 19th and 20th July), I assume it will probably be its first public showing, going to be epic
  6. Well you could use it 50% of the time, and just let the public onto that area when you are not using it, as long as everyone is told that at certain times they will not be alowed in that area it should work. was it just me or were the competition fliers taking up quite a lot of room at the 'back' with just their kites parked over quite a large area
  7. Yeh dont think I have ever seen that many people at the festival! the one time there was a decent amount of wind at LH and theres too many people to fly! Im surprised alot of the kids didnt get hurt, there were a lot of stunt kites crashing all around me when I was walking round.
  8. What happened to you guys? I got down there on Sunday about 4pm just when you were all packing up, then the guy on the loudspeaker said 'we were going to have the buggies out in the arena again, but it looks like they have all packed up after most of them getting injuries, just goes to show how careful you have to be with this sport'
  9. Firefox 3 for the win! im liking the improvements, just have to wait for all the extensions to be compatable!
  10. Is there a limit to the amount of bags per person? if not then just spread it out as much as possible. saw this product, might be a bit easier to weigh your bags instead of the bathroom scales! http://www.iwantoneofthose.com/digital-luggage-scales/index.html
  11. Do the pants come with flying lines?
  12. Blue with white go faster stripes!!
  13. Hehe yeh I definatly would treat it with respect, I remember the first time I took my blade out, the wind was so slow it barely flew, but it still pulled a hell of a lot than my stunt kites I had been flying previously! Ill have a look at the frenzys, esp if I can get one cheaper, just found out I might have to pay about £500 to get my laptop fixed/upgraded, ive already spent £2000 on it! *******s lol oh found a sabre cheap on ebay http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=160145190527&fromMakeTrack=true&ssPageName=VIP:watchlink:top:uk
  14. Lol yeh it wasnt very tangled to start with, i made the mistake of taking off one of the lines, which i forgot when tethered will cause it to take off slightly and spin like hell, so i was in a right pickle! took me ages to sort out, the joys of kiting eh? when will they bring out wireless versions, computers are becomming wireless, why cant kites! lol
  15. Well when you started this thread I was inactive, but now im back, so ive messed up the numbers! heres a lil toilet humour for you all I needed to pay a visit, so I found a public toilet that had two cubicles. One of the doors was locked. So I went into the other one, closed the door, dropped my trousers and sat down. A voice came from the cubicle next to me: "Hello mate, how are you going?" Although I thought that it was a bit strange, I didn't want to be rude, So I replied "Not too bad thanks." After a short pause, I heard the voice again "So, what are you up to?" Again
