MEFM heading home


Recommended Posts

yep, its small 2.5mm carbon tube that slides through the spreader and is kept taught by the bungy and line, not sure if this is what give them the unique flying feel, but it Is pretty neat :)

The black one was a shop model that was left over stock from the kite shop when it closed in 96. so I took it home for dad. he loaned it back to me last year.

the middle yellow one I got from Prawnstar and is fairly well used,, but very much flyable. and the top one came from Kevin and is pretty much brand new still. I would age them all at 1996-1998

I used to have a very early one it was grey and white, it had vented panels and was very very nice to fly in all winds. one day I will find another vented one somewhere.

I also had a microlite version it would fly in zero wind with a bit of walking. 

You can fly them at Kingston. I promise you will be hooked.

Oh Me Gosh! 🥰 The best Precision stunt kite ever made! Probably. WOOT!

I too love these Most Excellent Flying Machines! I was lucky enough to be handed the lines to one of these by an American gentleman at the world famous 😁 Blackheath Kite Festival in SE London more than 30 years back. Thank you my man, I have no recollection of your name. I was getting into precision flying, but not competitive. I was flying something I had made myself (being relatively poor) and paused to watch the MEFM. I then moved across and had a convo with it's flier, and was allowed to have a go. My Tim Benson Fizz Phantom, (acquired later) is the best stunt kite I've ever owned, but the MEFM is absolutely the best I've ever flown. Hmm, maybe that's because I hadn't flown anything expensive at the time. 😉
