Ha ha, just logged on at a fluky time mate.

Pure luck as they had been listed for only 7 minutes.:dance: Angela who owned them was stunned too. She was great as there were over 20 phone calls she said.

Cost $67.50 for the bubble wrap and postage from Sydney, but still a good deal for a 4 stack of new 6 footers in their bag.

So what stunt kites did you get?

Sounds like a buggy engine to me brm brm ... post some pics  as you run down the salt pan with them. You’ve got a bit of kiting history there, good buy.

My first "buy" from Gumtree and this week I will obtain an un-used Prism Nexus Stunt kite. Couldn't say no to the $10 price tag! Thank You @Bill who will "do the deal" for me (might not be un-used by the time it gets to me - go on...have a fly)

:round-thumbs-up: Proper Job!

If you can't wait for Branson or Musk to get their act together or you might not be able to afford their ride, here's a cheap way to get into orbit . . . . .

Here is one sweet kite at a fantastic price. I wouldn't hesitate if I didn't already have one. So well behaved and huge amount of depower. One of my most used sizes.

Anyone know what the Albatros is from Flynns Beach. Looks huge. 

 

 

Never heard of them.  But probably worth the money just to find out what they are!

Never heard of them either and last time we were up at Flynns Beach (Christmas time) They weren't there. Hasn't been a kite shop in Port for years!

Pretty sure I know who it is, name is John, he had a kiteshop up there years ago and organised some kite festivals in the area, this is pre kitesurfing days back around 1995-1997. 

They are a large 2 line delta I think.

@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.......!!!

      THIS KITE IS SOLD,
      YOU MISSED OUT, HIT THE FLOOR AND GIVE ME TEN

       
      This kite is on ebay UK. 
      See my ebay listing here >> http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Flexifoil-Blade-II-4m-Power-kite-/281747784657? << PICTURES.
      ***********************************************
      Flexifoil Blade II... The best Blade they made imo. The widow maker!    No damage. No repairs. Just perfect!    *** SHIPS WORLDWIDE *** Ask me for postage costs.  Hi,   This Blade II 4m power kite is the perfect size and ready to fly!    It's big enough to give you a good workout in the park but small enough to still be fast and fun.  This size works perfectly with the original 4 line bar that I'm including but I will also be including small Ozone handles for even finer control. Both are harness ready!    The original bag is completely gone. The zippers have corroded and the bag material has split, therefore I am including a nice slimline draw-string harness bag from Ozone which I think is better than the chunky overkill rucksack n.   Wind range of this kite - min 3mph  - max 20mph.   Includes - Kite, Ozone bag, Ozone handles, Flexifoil bar and line set, kite killer and line winder.
