Title: Wala specs?
Post by: cbs2010 on November 14, 2010, 12:44 PM
My little nephew stepped on the center spine and broke it. Does anyone know the specs for a replacement center spine ?
 Cheers

Corey

First, for $2.50 USD plus shipping, Flying Wings will send you a new one.  Contact Anne Palopo <annepqi@yahoo.com> or call them @

Pacific Quest, Inc.
dba. Flying Wings Kites
1141 Ringwood Court, Suite #130
San Jose, CA 95131

They were very helpful and nice.
I would have them send you a new nose piece too, since it is hard to get the spine out of the nose.  It is glued in and unless you are better with a drill than me, you can easily wreck the soft poly.  The dihedral and knock at the tail end slide off (the latter takes a sharp smack to pop it off.)  Altogether, the shipping costs more than the parts. :D
If you have a good kite store nearby and can get there rod, it is 3mm x 109 cm.

Good winds.
