Title: Adrian's Big Mana-Ray .... Belle Isle Detroit 5-12-12
Post by: vertigo2u on May 14, 2012, 07:49 AM
Take a minute to stop video to see his craftsmanship... Guy is incredable ...  I will post more info in him when I get O.K. from him.  Not Sure if he sells these beauties.

Tony in the background are the Windjammers Kite Team. (btw if you haven't seen them youtube them)... I got a chance to fly the 13 stack dnyo's...WHAT A RUSH ... Pull was less than expected.  They don't turn sharp like the vision stacks.  But beautiful to fly.

Would that be Adrian Conn? (I think) I was drawing up somewhat similar plans for a Manta Ray type kite combining a delta & foil back in 1990-91 when he came out with that design beating me by a year or more. Fantastic kite, sadly I was never fortunate enough to see it or meet him in person. Thanks for the vid, I sure enjoyed seeing more of the kite then a static photo. There was either a write-up on the kite or plans available back in the 90's.
