UFO – Quad line flying

I went out at lunch today with my new YFO/UFO/Airyo-ish kite and had a go at flying it as a quad. The kite performed much better than I expected and there are lot’s of areas to tweak.

Le Virus – Number 2 finished!

Finsished “Le Virus” number 2 this evening… Test flight tomorrow :) :)

It holds a crease long enough to feed it through my bias binder and creates a nice finish. I will make the dacron reinforcements at the standoff positions thicker, as I didn’t leave quite enough room for the standoff-to-sail connector. The kite has the frame from my green “Le Virus” and I will eventually frame it in skyshark P200′s and 5pt tapers.

Here is a photo of the completed kite…
