    Buggy and Kite / Kites Wanted to Buy (Vic, Tas)

    Hi @Tassie Flyer this topic reminds me very much of a topic you started 2 years ago WANTED! Kite Buggy and Kite. TAS. I always assumed that you must have either purchased the buggy and kites that I found for you in Tasmania back then, or purchased new. i wonder if you will have better luck this time

    eBay & Gumtree Finds

    There is a flexifoil buggy for sale on eBay (not mine). Current auction price is at only $56, so it may be a cheap buggy for someone in need. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Fliexfoil-Kite-Buggy-/161226777819?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item2589dd64db&_uhb=1
  6. Ok, it gets said a lot, but this new kite may actually be the biggest game changer since depower race kites were introduced. its the new Flysurfer VMG 13^3 13m2 surface area 13m wing span 13.0 aspect ratio It has a claimed wind range of 4-40knots, so it would truely be a one kite quiver. if it can actually be solo launched, flown and relaunched by the average user it will truely be a game changer. One ultimate kite. https://flysurfer.com/2019/04/vmg-13³-the-real-game-changer/ Edit: Ok those sneaky Germans got me. April 1st 🎣 😅

    Flysurfer VMG 13^3 - Game changer!

    I just googled deathblade paraglider and watched the video below. The jelly fishing of the wing at 30 seconds is incredible. I was just waiting for it to collapse UPDATE: there is a notice on the flysurfer Facebook page that it was an April fools joke (sort of) the kite itself is real and flys at intended, but the “joke” is that it’s not for sale. It is simply and r&d project. Sons of bitches. 😠

    I know those rev storage bags aren’t cheap to buy new, but $100 is asking a bit. Or maybe I’m just a cheap bastard 😄

    Kite GoPro mount

    do you want to mount to the strut or the lines just above the depower? strut mount = head strap. Google a how to video line mount = line mount. There are plenty of options available. Head strap as strut mount Or a purpose made option

    Chain lube for kite lines

    I sold my mountain bike a few weeks ago and I was going through the bits and pieces I still had for it (deciding what to sell or throw out), when I came across some chain dry lube. A wax based, solvent free lube. That is designed to not attract dust or wash off with water. Hmmm, What could I possibly use this for? it was obvious really. So today I grabbed a length of old kite line, wiped some on and let dry for half an hour. this is the result. The chain lube was applied to the left half obviously. The coated line has a nice slippery feel, that didn’t want to rub off. I also ran my finger nails up and down it to try and get the little frayed bits to stand up, but they mostly stayed stuck down. A bottle of this chain lube sells for about $15 and 120ml should be enough to do at least 10 sets of lines. So now it’s just a matter of time and motivation to coat some full sets of lines.

    No odour. I can’t say about staining fabric, but will see.
