  1. KINGSTON S.E 2019 Its that time again everyone, to start planning the main event of the Extreme Kites Group. (Correct me if I'm wrong @.Joel as the earliest thread I can see dates 2003) For the last 15 years, kiters have got together for the meet of the year and the best way to start the year with a catch up in Kingston S.E in South Australia. Kiters come from all corners of the country from Experience, WA to Canberra, ACT to buggy the long stretch of beach from The Blackford Drain up to the Granites, or if the weather is perfect, a ride out on the Lake Nadzab aka The Clay Pan. Members usually stay at the Kingston Foreshore Caravan Park for the duration of their trip, a fully equipment park with unpowered/powered sites, basic/delux cabins and decent bathroom and kitchen facilities and on Australia Day, put on a fantastic Ariel kite display for the general public. This is a non-organised event, it just happens as a way to celebrate a great meet up. This year, myself and @igeighty, along with @roblukin are planning on a slightly longer trip over. Arriving onsite on Saturday 5th January 2019 and heading back home on Sunday 27th January 2019. (Of cause we don't expect everyone to stay for 3 weeks, but its general idea of the dates) We have already made our site bookings and are now on the exciting countdown until we can head over. So if each year you've ummed and arrred about heading over, do it and you'll find that you'll return again and again each year as we have. Looking forwards to seeing you all! Mez

  4. Multi-Rotor Thread

    I dreamt of Budgie last night - time for a fly somewhere @igeighty - I guess after you've finished making up the cases (Doug bought some Kaizen Foam, which pulls away in layers, so a quick trip to Bunnings last night for another case, he'll be spending this weekend designing and creating the foam inserts) I think we've found the perfect hobby for when the winds and tides (and temperatures) are not at their best. Thanks for your comments @SoutherlyBuster - I just couldn't get enough of that sunset, it was soooo pweedy! That fly was just a general "get to know your drone" I can't wait to capture some kite buggy action along the beach. Should be well practise come our Kingston trip. @igeighty Prepare to get buzzed!
  5. The curve of your tail bone in that last photo is incredible @Jase Shepperd
  6. Big kites for sale

    Hi Emily, Welcome to the forum! My husband @igeighty (above) is SO passionate about the MEFM's (Most Excellent Flying Machine) so if not already sold elsewhere, please can you provide us with the cost to purchase? And its his birthday in July, so would make a wonderful gift. In regards to the other kites, like you have with the MEFM, spread out the kite for a photo and we will do our best to try and identify them for you. But certainly, any MEFM's in your collection, we would love to take them off your hands as they will certainly be flow.
