    Found - AVIA Gforce UL

    Hi guys, I am looking for a source of AVIA Gforce UL spars, or something similar, (and ferrules) these are wrapped tapered rods, from the leading edge of an MEFM. I do not have callipers on hand to measure, so have eyeballed it using a $2 tape. I have read that sky shark nitro would be a suitable replacement ? just looking for input from anyone that has replaced these. regards. Doug.

    Thanks @KaoS the spar replacement is perfect, and has restored the kite to a pristine condition. next for me is to go over these old kites and replace the bungee, that has deteriorated over time, found that stuff here, and is on its way. https://www.ropegalore.com.au/o3mm-x-5m-shock-cord-free-postage/ thanks again. Dougie

    Found - AVIA Gforce UL

    G'day Kevin. Thanks for the info, It certainly does help. If I could purchase the 'G-Force UL at 76cm' from you that would be amazing. As for the 7.3mm ferrule to join them, I am going to attempt to extract the ferule from this broken spar. (not sure on my success though) failing that though, it looks like that 7.3mm would be available through an arrow supplier, I found one listing on amazon, that sells 7.3mm OD arrows.https://www.amazon.com/SinoArt-Feathers-Press-fit-Replaceable-Targeting/dp/B07D6MH1BL so possibly could be used. Thanks so much for the info about the sky shark also. I think that sky shark 5pt is the way to go if I am to replace both leading edges as this seems the best and closest fit the these AVIA spars. I have found them here https://www.kitesandfunthings.com/Products/Sky-Shark-Black-Diamond-Tubes__BDSERIES.aspx also, I definitely need to get a set of vernier callipers. As eyeballing these sizes with old eyes just doesn't work again mate, thanks for your info and help. Doug

    Thanks Michael, I have sent a few emails, seems AVIA is now defunct, ill see what replies come through after the easter break. another avenue might be Michael Richards up in Sydney, but he is in NZ on holidays till next month. http://www.kitesandfunthings.com have a huge range of stuff. I may have to bight the bullet and re-spar the kite with a different rod. I will keep trying and see what comes up

    Flysurfer VMG 13^3 - Game changer!

    I have to admit that I had a major pucker just sitting watching that. you would have to assume that he has a parachute strapped to his back also for when it DOES collapse ? man, that was intense.

    A hard day at work

    Now I realise that small things amuse small minds, but I found a video from a mate that sums up my day at work.

    new buggy spot near Barwon Heads.

    Going back through google earth historical imagery, it looks like it seasonally empties and fills ? the petroglyph seems to have been carved in 2017 Id be guessing though it is on private land.

    First Builds

    Hi Matt, any machine can be fine for sewing ripstop, I recently bought a singer heavy duty 4423 from spotlight for around 300, and on my latest build has not missed a beat. Easily sewing through multiple layers and Dacron. I also bought a walking foot for it for around 60 and this has helped immensely when doing the appliqué. Many stitches but I use mainly straight and triple step zig zag. A brilliant machine for the money. regards Doug https://www.spotlightstores.com/sewing-fabrics/sewing-equipment/sewing-machines/singer-4423-heavy-duty-sewing-machine/BP80304571 $299 currently

    eBay & Gumtree Finds

    @Steve if John is still around, perhaps you could coax him to come and post here. I haven't seen him since parting ways after World Cup at lakes... last heard he had moved south to Forster tuncurry to continue his locksmithing. I do miss that crazy but loveable old dodger.... the workshop used to be in the underneath the house at Flynns beach in Port Mac but that was under the 'superb flying devices' moniker back then. I have left many messages with the seller and even phoned her but am still waiting for her to TAKE MY MONEY.......!!!
