Yep that sure is mine.  Jenny sold hers to Andy at Australia Day fly. I haven't used mine a lot in the last few years and after a small stroke early Jan thought it wise to down size a few toys and give me more room in the shed now that we are semi permanent living here in Kingston SE. Cheers to everyone in these strange times.

its a quadrifoil.

As it states in the description.. 

'Mentone 3194. Quadrifoil "Party" model power kite. Super fun either just to fly or to pull buggy, skis, etc. Comes with instructions and bonus 13 editions of "Kite Passion" magazine from the 90s...Contactless pick up.' $120

Quadrifoil were a huge brand back in the day, the 2m and 3m were great high wind kites and I did my fastest buggy speeds on a 2m in 30+ knots.

The designer now designs for F-One, and his early race kites under the Quadrifoil brand were extremely fast. They had a lot of paragliding tech in them and were designed by Robert Graham. Manufactured in the Gin factory I think.

If the kites listed are not overpriced they would still be heaps of fun and good value.

Very unusual power kite. Anyone know some history here?

Hi everyone, first post. Thanks for having me! I actually just bought this very kite (the Quadrifoil 3M) and came here separately to check out your site and *maybe* look for a second hand buggy ;) Nice coincidence to see it mentioned here! It's in good condition and flew well in its first outing today. Cheers all!

Well done @Angus Johnstone I used to own a 6 metre Quadrifoil. it was a very nice kite for its age.

I hope you get some airtime with it during the lockdown 2 hour exercise period :) 

Keep your eyes out in the EVENTS section here in normal times this is the season to buggy.

We get down to Sandy point often (in normal times) there are still a few buggies laying around the place, hopefully one comes up that suits your needs.

Welcome to extremekites. you will find a wealth of knowledge within.

 

regards.

Dougie..

I just saw this buggy and kites for sale in Canberra and thought it must be yours @Tiger37!

But not so on closer inspection: https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/651839022197228 

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

      THIS KITE IS SOLD,
      YOU MISSED OUT, HIT THE FLOOR AND GIVE ME TEN

       
      This kite is on ebay UK. 
      See my ebay listing here >> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Flexifoil-Blade-II-4m-Power-kite-/281747784657? << PICTURES.
      ***********************************************
      Flexifoil Blade II... The best Blade they made imo. The widow maker!    No damage. No repairs. Just perfect!    *** SHIPS WORLDWIDE *** Ask me for postage costs.  Hi,   This Blade II 4m power kite is the perfect size and ready to fly!    It's big enough to give you a good workout in the park but small enough to still be fast and fun.  This size works perfectly with the original 4 line bar that I'm including but I will also be including small Ozone handles for even finer control. Both are harness ready!    The original bag is completely gone. The zippers have corroded and the bag material has split, therefore I am including a nice slimline draw-string harness bag from Ozone which I think is better than the chunky overkill rucksack n.   Wind range of this kite - min 3mph  - max 20mph.   Includes - Kite, Ozone bag, Ozone handles, Flexifoil bar and line set, kite killer and line winder.
