    Need a favor - Covid19 Melboune

    @nigel, our restrictions in qld never seemed as bad as what you are having in Victoria. And I imagine that in northern qld the “restrictions” were almost none existent, so asking someone to pick up a kite was pretty reasonable. Unfortunately what is normal every day for some areas of Australia is not for others 🙁

    Wow. That’s awesome and some serious speed. I had to rewatch the start, because the speed just kept going up so fast. Brilliant.

    Easy buggy backrest

    Needed a backrest on my Peter lynn bitsa buggy, but I don’t have easy (Cheap) access to an engineering workshop anymore, so I came up with an easy diy design. parts needed: 1m of 32mm stainless tubing. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/114008760179 2x 32mm tube jointing connector thingys (if someone knows what these are called that would be great) https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/123935778624 I do have a cheap pipe bender, so I gave it bit of a bend. Sorry @Chook, I should of done your trick of filling with water and freezing so it doesn’t kink, but it a slight bend that nobody will see 😉 then Just cut it to length and bolted it on. All that was left was wrap a pool noodle around it and make a cover. I have also been gathering the bits I need to build a composite giga axle. But that’s for another day...
  8. Are you selling any of your arcs?

    Thinking of you all!

    Well that’s all over my head. But I guess it’s been a lot of experience and learning to get to know what works. 👍

    My Collection

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jODlnE6_AY&feature=youtu.be Peter Lynn Arc Kite Collection.mov This is my collection of Peter Lynn Arc kites. It all began with a couple of f-arcs a few years ago, that I picked up direct from the peter Lynn factory in NZ. The collection and my interest in arc kites quickly grew from there. The full list of kites shown in the video is below, but some of the rarest are the 24m Charger, 6m Hi-arc, and custom size f-arcs. There are also a few kites not included in the video as they are either doubles or in the post to me now (yes, the collection is still growing) Nearly all the kites have and do get flown, with a few still needing repairs to get the ready to fly. In the video.... 600 Hi-arc 600 F-arc (fully custom made by myself) 900 F-arc (cut down from 12m) 1200 F-arc 1600 F-arc 1830 F-arc (cells added to a 1600) 630 S-arc 840 S-arc 1120 S-arc 15m Guerilla II 8m Venom II 10m Venom II 13m Venom II 16m Venom II 19m Venom II 16m Scorpion 12m Synergy 10m Charger 12m Charger 15m Charger 24m Charger 15m Charger II Not in video.... 600 S-arc (prototype) 1200 F-arc (brand new factory condition in bag) 1600 F-arc (brand new factory condition in bag) 1830 F-arc (spare) 13m Venom II (spare) 16m Venom II (spare) 19m Venom II (spare) 15m Synergy (currently in the post)
