Gary Mark (torontokiteflier?) has one here in Toronto. I almost got a chance to fly it a coupla weeks ago, but it was too drizzly for him to want to take it out, so we mostly flew FW Aerobes instead. Maybe next time.

Sometimes we baby the things we really, really love.  :-\ 

Sometimes we give them cocoa on cold nights, hum lullabies to them, and tuck them under merino blankets.   ::)

Gary
Florida
Black, white, gray and teal

Got it as a Christmas present and thank you for being such a nice guy. My wife thinks it's a cover story because she says I have never been THAT nice.

Great kite. Ken even wrote on the kite that it was made just for me.
Not sure which is more special, the kite or knowing that I have such great friends.

And you couldn't risk ONE of them on the wet field?!? Zheesh, you'd think it was a US$200 kite or something. . . ;)

I FINALLY got mine just after Thanksgiving.
I have played with it a lot but it is always dark and I haven't been able to get a good photo of it.  It is the prettiest one Ken ever made so when I get a good photo, I'll post it.

Mine should be on its way soon with an Ichiban. But I will not see them until May when I pick them up in Wisconsin.

Well there was light and no rain, so this will have to do, for now.........I'm sure backlit by Ol Sol will be even better.......
