  1. Peter Lynn Arc Comprehensive FAQ

    Lubing zips, hm I just cleaned them with fresh water if salt crusted.
  2. Eco Charging....

    I thought you need to wear corderoy pants for that? ... and use round pebbles for toilet paper. Ya ok, I play one of those as well. Fond memories camping out at Bungonia Gorge (NSW), playing music by the camp fire at night.
  3. Eco Charging....

    Like bring a harmonica or accoustic guitar along.
  4. Eco Charging....

    and then there is the perfect bliss of camping without being bothered by a mobile phone ...

  6. Need a defrost button.....

    A balmy 11 degC in Christchurch New Zealand, and about -3 degC at Mt Hutt ski field on the weekend. Actually today is warmer than it was on the week end. Last week on the way to work it as -2 degC early in the morning.
  7. My new hardware from last years ‘ flight off the buggy’ episode.

    Ouch, how did you manage to get back to your car and to hospital? All the best for you to mend up. By the way, what lead to the OBE?
  8. Multi-Rotor Thread

    Not bad Mezz, no crashes and a safe landing is a good day. More practice on smooth rations and avoiding pointing into the sun. So when will the flips be done? Na just kiding. Nice weather for the filming. The surf looks absolute magic, brings back happy memories.

  11. Snowboard Yaw wobbles

    Snow season just about to begin in the South Island of New Zealand, hmm what’s on the check list and to do’s ... On one of my last snow kiting sessions on a snowboard, Zac and I decided to try altering the snow boot angle from the standard alpine stance to a more duck orientation when we snow board with the kites. Zac liked the change and I hated it. For me it immediately induced yaw wobbles into the board that I could not stop, so I changed back to the alpine stance. So has any one else experienced the same instabilities? What was your solution? Sure my board for kiting with the alpine stance as a bias depending on whether I kite left or right but seems to work for me. Or is this a case of the fabled kite specific snow board .... really? Akak marketing ploy to get you to buy another board.
  12. Flysurfer Boost3 Kite

    no swivel? Just looked at the FS site, kite comes without bar standard, so you can pick which bar. Bars still available with swivel. Am I missing something? Did notice in the advert for the Boost 3 they also put in a mention good for Foilboarding, hmm, though when looking at the specs for each kite, they are still promoting the Sonic 2 for foilboarding weapon of choice. Hey @Spartan are you up grading to the Boost3?
  13. Funny Videos

    Some things were just not meant to be in the water. Just love the miss guiden mind set, press that accelerator pedal just some more to get out of trouble, err um more like dig deeper. Like the guy with his 4wd drive jeep getting boged at Altona years ago, in the end the police and tow truck arrived.
  14. No wind toy ideas

    My son does this, well sort of, with his quadcopters with an eye set. Not just the similator, but flying out there in the real paddock.
  15. Sit Stand Desks, Anyone have one?

    Interesting read, perhaps the best thing an office layout can do is purposely place some needed items out of reach from where you normally sit, to force you to get off your ars@#&#$&@ and move around by walking.
