Title: My new Talon UL just arrived!
Post by: Ara Ararauna on May 16, 2012, 01:24 PM
I'm so, so happy!   :D
My new Talon UL arrived just today!

Isn't it beautiful?   :P
I would like to thank Mark for his craftsmanship in bringing my design to life.
I think it is even better than I imagined!    :)

Now I'll have to have a lot of patience until I get to fly it. It will be a truly Zen exercise...   ???
I hope this weekend is not especially windy...

Cheers,

N.

Awesome! Congrats.

You definitely made the right the choice in the colors/pattern. It gives off a robot/alien vibe, I dig it.

I would wish you luck on that "not especially windy" weekend, but then I'd be jinxing everyone (ME) who doesn't have a UL!  ;)

Don't worry, I'm in a different continent from you and, in any case, I don't know anyone in the forum that is closer than 1000miles from me...
So do wish me luck   ;)

Good winds to everyone!

Hey congrats on this Ara :)
For sure this is another kite which require even more precise inputs and sensitive movements..

Have loads of fun ;)

That is really sweet (drooling). I hope I can get one when I move up to the big boys table. I'll have to start saving my aluminum cans and checking between the couch cushions.

Not true - the UL is forgiving and hands out tricks for free.

Woot! I'm so happy for you-- the Talon is a beautiful kite and is on my "someday" list.

One of the best looking Talon's I've seen. I have a UL, and a Vented. Have Fun!

Nice!  One of my favorite color combinations.  It is good to be able to appreciate the design elements with natural colors and a bit of color splash.  Well done.

I still need a UL... :)
