Title: Stan's BIG BIG HUGE KITE ( a must see for "Rudy" fans )
Post by: vertigo2u on April 23, 2010, 07:44 AM
This was shot Wednesday at Schoolcraft College in Michigan... Stan owns and operates this Big Puppy.  He also designed and crafted the 175 foot tails.  When asked why ??? Stan just said... " ...I had nothing to do that day...".  Stan is a brainiac from the Kites and Fun Things gang.

Stan has three four foot steel poles.  He dives them in the ground against each other on a angleand through a steel ring.  If the force of the kite is too strong.  The three poles tighten against each other and don't allow for problems...  Gromber kits teaches the technique.
