Title: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: tpatter on October 10, 2012, 11:59 AM
We've been very good this year - Christmas appears to be coming early.  :) 

Lam is working on a new kite.   

He tells me that this one is so good that he was hesitant to produce it - I think he's worried that he can't top it's performance!   :)  Described it to me as being bigger than both the Fearless and Trans and also that it was designed as a team kite that delivers all the tricks.  In particular, excellent precision as a primary strength and combining the strengths of both the Transformer and Fearless. 

I've seen prototype pictures - looks good with a very aggressive style.

Should be out soon, more details to follow.  I am excited to get my hands and lines on one soon! 

Tom

Does this kite employ an improved and refined version of the "little bit of bridle line near the base of the spine" (LBOBLNTBOTS) ?

That's really all I care about.

Mike.

DOA = Dead Or Alive.   :)

Sort of a put up or shut up, live or die attitude as I took it.

I have a picture, but I'm sworn to secrecy.  He may be still be tweaking things, although I am really liking how it looks.    I can't wait to get my Kung fu on!  :)

That link has "Dead or Alive" (video game series ) as the top result, above "dead on arrival". Maybe it doesn't for you. Google should know by now that I like video games, even if I've never played that series.

Looks like another chance to use DuckDuckGo (https://duckduckgo.com/?q=define%3A+doa). (They don't customize results.)

When you precede a Google search with define: you should get, stick with me here, a definition first and then whatever links they throw up. It's one of the neat tricks with The Google that a lot of people don't know about, like unit and currency conversions. If you don't get this you may need to reinstall your internets.

How do I do this reinstall you speak of? ;)

I am aware of these features. Perhaps it doesn't show the definition because it's google.no, and I'm in the US? Google.com does show a definition for me before the search results. Your link (as I said) does not, however.

Post by: Fearless Object on October 11, 2012, 01:38 PM
I had a movie call TEKKEN DOA is very cool to watch, Bought the movie in Aisa. Also just buy the DOA 5 lastest game for Xbox 360. Very cool fighting game. So the kite will do the same thing combo tricking action none stop. Just like Kung Fu fighting style. That is where the name come from. Wait until you see the graphics on the kite and you will understand why the kite name TEKKEN DOA. I give the name to match with the kite. Few year back when I compete, some time we have no wind at all and we have to Fly or Die that is the story come from. Thank you for reading this.

Here is the link on Amazon where you can buy the Movie if you are interested. The movie just like Hot trick shoot out in kitting. The last fighter standing will be the champ. Very cool and great story.

Hold on...10 vents, but goes low?  Hmm, not what I had thought.  I was thinking it was vented for the high wind days and getting excited...


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: RobB on October 11, 2012, 05:52 PM
So, if you all ready have a Fearless vented light, what does the FearDevil SUV do better ? Is it just a looks thing ? Should I just forget the FearDevil and start saving for the Tekken DOA ? Can't wait to see the design...


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: justinpwheeler on October 11, 2012, 06:59 PM
I had the impression that the FearDevils were basically Fearless kites with extra appliqué work...am I wrong in this?


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: rudyy on October 11, 2012, 07:17 PM
I think the SUV has more vents and more artwork.

Post by: tpatter on October 11, 2012, 10:24 PM
They are all Fearless.  The venting in the ultimate does add something for sure, but I don't think you need a vented light and also an ultimate.   Rob, if you don't have the reverse turbo on your vented light (or your SUL for that matter), I would try it out - very sweet.

Go for the new shiny Tekken - I have it from a very reliable source that this new kite is 'all that and a bag of chips'!

Almost all of Lam's kites will go very high, with or without vents.  Our SUV will fly easily at 2 MPH because of the light framing and the vents add to the tricking and smooth out the inland winds.  Lam told me it will fly low to medium, which tells me I probably wouldn't want to fly it higher than 15 MPH........I have flown it in 12 MPH at the coast and it was wonderful......really smooth............ ;)

Post by: RobB on October 12, 2012, 04:52 AM
I have the reverse turbo on my Fearless Tattoo, and yes, it's sweet. Just flew it yesterday, and it just keeps getting better with age. That kite's been in my 'A' bag for three years now. I am looking forward to getting my vented light back from repair, I haven't flown it in over a year... don't even remember what bridle it has on it.

I love the Kool Aid and this newest flavor is looking pretty sweet to me. I have been known to drink my share, tuck a little pinch between my cheek and gum, maybe run a Kool Aide IV drip once in a while too. Ahhhhhhh chock full of trickin' bliss baby.

I like the look too, Lam made it and anything form him in the last decade or so has eyes. When I see eyes, I see tricking fun, so it looks even better. The more I fly them and enjoy the tricking the better and better they look.

All kidding aside, his kites have a far eastern whimsical theme to them that works for many of us. Some just can't handle but I can just fine. They look good in the air and are definitely unique and super well made. Lam cares how his kites look, every one. He'll talk you out of color combos he thinks don't work well. But the bottom line is they trick bad ass good ;) I'm kind of anxious to trick the Tekken.


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: Fearless Object on October 19, 2012, 12:13 AM
I am in Toronto now, it is raining very bad here, that is life what can I do :)

I am sorry for who does not like eyes on the kite, to me it is a focus point when you fly the kite, bewteen you and the kite are eyes contact to each other, The flying and the tricks make you fly better I think. TEKKEN is the one, fly so smooth and the trick are so easy then ever. Precision and Taz is like no tomorrow :) as right now I had tested in the light and std version are very good sofar, Next one will be SUL and vented and I am done. Of course a little video that would be great to show you what is TEKKEN DOA meaning :)

Have a great day fun out there :)

Mr William, please tell me where is this place where we are going to fly. I will be meetining Rudy at the Uper Canada Mall on Young Street and David Drive in Newmarket. Rudy told me at Bayview and where ??? I forgot.

Thanks a lot

Hi Lam,
It is the Bayview Reservoir on Bayview Avenue and Sycamore Drive in Richmond Hill, just south of Highway7 ( or the toll highway 407 which runs parallel with #7 ) on Bayview Ave.      
                                                                                                                                                                                        William.

A review appears (http://v2.1.kiteclique.com/wordpress-3.0/wordpress/sky-sport-designs-tekken-review-by-tom-patterson).

Kudos to Tommy P. for this and his grasp of understatement:- First off, let me get something out of the way and confess that I am a big fan of Sky Sport Design’s kites.  ;)

Hey Tom, Thanks a lot for taking the time writen a very nice review about the kite. I do appreciate.

Tempest, EdMond and I were fly again yesterday, the wind was not to bad, we had a great time:) I have a short video for the TEKKEN, I will post it when I am done the work :)

BTW, are you coming up this weekend to Vancourver BC Right :) Please let me know when and what time ? Maybe best you come straight to the park and I will meet you at Gary Point Park in Rich Mond. we will chat before you go.

Thanks again and you have a great day.

You are welcome - Eli and I have been having a lot of fun with the Tekken.  Lots of rain now, but we get out when we can.

Can't wait to see the video.  Thanks.

Hi Tom, I check the video and Edmond had zoom in and out all the time, missing a lot and also out of focus, I might have a minuts or two. too bad, if he didn't zoom in and out then I have more video air time. Anyway I will wait for you to help me video when I am flying. Or you and Eli flying :) that would be awesome.

BTW, Mr William did so many Taz on Monday with the DOA. I never knew he is very good :) Way to go my friend.

Thanks Tom

Hey Lam, you are too kind .  :)   You flatter me  :D .    Maybe it is just that the DOA makes me execute tricks more easily . You do not have to be so forceful with your inputs, and there is good feedback and pull with the kite.  8)  8)   The TEKDOA, ( pardon me, if i may ) just flies beautifully.   :'(         tempest.

Impressive freestyle flying in this video. However, I was under the impression that this was a polyvalent or team oriented kite. There wasn't a single straight line or sharp corner to be found.

I don't mean this to be a complaint about this video in particular, it just seems that a vast majority of videos displaying what a kite can these days do forget that precision flying adds that extra "umph" to a video that makes it awesome.

As my flying ability has started to progress, I wouldn't even consider a kite that will not cut a good corner. Mostly because there are kites out there that can do just about everything and cut a corner and display straight lines.

I have no doubt that this kite can do it, but we won't know until we fly or see it.

The first day was bumpy 30 + Mph, can not much in crazy wind in the city. Tempest, Edmond, Rudy and I just fly for an hour then go to the coffee shope, the second much better, wind was 3 to 6 mph, But Rudy already gone home, too bad. Would be nice if the wind was smooth both day. No big deal always next time to come :)

I have been tricking for many year now and for some reason I forgot all about the precision, I use to be precision flyer champ at the AKA:) I love fly precision but the tricking stuff so much fun and it took over everything. I will get back to you with precision video as soon as I have it. Thanks.

Good day.

Lam -

You are killing my budget  :'(. As discussed my next kite is this one to be ordered in February 2013:

Fearless Devil Ultimate Suv 3.2 Custom.

Or in simpler terms a Fearless SUL - Vented. I like this color combination. I do find the larger Fearless giving me a different fly than the Transformer or Tattoo but do not have a Fearless SUL yet in my bag - just a LIGHT - so it might as well be a custom vent. Each with its own kind of flying ... but of the same family or not requiring too many adjustments. I think the vented SUL is worth experimenting as I fly into the Spring of 2013 with something a little different.

Its too bad most people on the other side of the pond will never fly a Transformer/Fearless SUL or Tattoo (SSUL).

Willi kochs woven design kites have 1/3rd more lift......that is due to the holes in the skin create more 'working' surface area....sort of the same thing where dimples on a golf ball increase distance...

Willi kochs woven design kites have 1/3rd more lift......that is due to the holes in the skin create more 'working' surface area....sort of the same thing where dimples on a golf ball increase distance...

... not wanting to hijack the thread too much, but the dimples on a golf ball increase lift because they optimize the pressure difference between lower and upper surfaces as golf ball spins backwards - something that shouldn't be happening with a kite.

Yes, the dimples increase distance too, but this is more to do with the reduction in drag due to the creation of a turbulent boundary layer. This allows the smoothly flowing air to follow the ball's surface a little farther around the back side of the ball, decreasing the size of the wake, thus reducing friction drag.  Would a similar reduction in friction drag improve a kite, or introduce another set of problems?  Not sure - something to ask Peter Lynn.

Lemme tell you about this new trick I've been working on....  ::)

So venting a kite's sail improves both its low wind range and high wind range. More vents increases both of these effects. Hmmm..... by logical extension and I use the term quite wrongly in order to get the maximum wind range for a kite there should be more and more vents until there is no sail left and just a frame and bridle.

I can find no flaw in this logic.

Mike,

Sound reasoning!

Just like if I ride my motorbike through an intersection at 30 kph I take, say, 2 seconds to get through.  But if I travel at 60 kph, I get through the intersection in 1 second.  And if I travel at 120 kph, I get through the intersection in half a second.

So, the faster I travel the less time there is for me to get hit by a car going through the intersection other way.  Hmmm..... by logical extension, the faster I travel through an intersection, the safer I become.  So I should try pegging it whenever I come to an intersection  ;)

There is a theory of risk assessment called Time Exposed to Danger (TED). Hammering it over a busy crossroads is a good example of that. However, your average lawman may not be familiar with this concept and many are reluctant to hear a reasoned argument on the subject.

Really ? If I double my speed, I travel twice as far in the same time. If I halve my speed, I travel half as far. Choose your multiples the relationship still stands. That's a linear relationship that can be extended infinitely, both logically and naturally.

Once you get up to relativistic velocities, you may have a hard time continuing to double your speed, and the elapsed time depends on whose watch you're consulting.

More seriously - linear relationships are often simplified models that are only useful within a restricted domain. Galileo's various weights all hit the ground at the same time, but a feather would take a lot longer.

This old engineering joke seems relevant:

An Engineer and Mathematician (males) were given the opportunity to compete for a very attractive woman. There was one condition: "You can only run half the remaining distance between you and the lady". The Engineer sprinted forward while the Mathematician didn't. "Why aren't you running?" asked members of the Committee. Because, said the Mathematician, by definition, I will never be allowed to reach my target. And you Engineer why ARE you running? Don't you know the same? Yes, said the Engineer my learned friend is correct, but I will get close enough for all practical purposes.

To all my friend, Have a wonderful Christmas and a happy New Year. All the best in 2013 :)

Here is the link for the Tekken Doa Vented video on Vung Tau Beach VN, close to the end of the video will show you how to learn the Comete trick from France, I hope this is the easy way to see and learn. Enjoy !

I am just wondering if the video helping anyone learning the Comete trick at all ? Please let me know so I know. Thanks. Hopefully next time to make another video for the Roller Coaster trick. BTW, I will be return back to Country in few day :) Here is too hot, good to be back to the cold weather for change :)

Have a nice day.

Your video helped me to UNDERSTAND the Comete. Any other time I've seen the trick it just looked like broken kite in a high wind.... OK, that's not fair, I've seen a few people do them nicely, but the way you split the trick up really helps. Not that I'll be able to do the trick anytime soon, but at least I understand it, now. Thanks !

Thanks Rob, I am glad you understand the each two part 1, 2 first then 3, and 4, the rest just put all together, slowly you can do it faster. Happen to me too. I have to do one step at a time, because our mind can not think and do it all at the same time. so the best way is break it a part, 1,2 then ........ 3, 4 and then 1,2, 3, 4 :) after you understand.

I will asking Tom Patterson to help me post the video for me, because I don;t know how. Sorry about that.

Have a nice day

Thanks for posting the video!  That helps to simplify it. So the comete is essentially a series of half axels in quick succession?

My new Bird is shipping out tomorrow...

Meet a new breed... The Tekken DEVIL... Where a fearless Devil meets Tekken DOA, and awesomeness ensued. Taken at Lams local Japanese Garden. I can't wait to get it in the air...
Should be here by next week sometime...

I have to say the Tekkon has not been something I could say I liked the look of.... but I think this kite is looking very cool. The black on the white is very classy and I can even live with the eyes. Nice!

Thanks for the information my friend, I understood, that is why I do differently for Kirby kites :) Maybe I should do two different style of graphics to make everyone happy :) always another way ... Thanks again.

Have a great day :)

Fearless will win "hands down" Tekken is not a trickster any where near the fearless.... The Transformer on the other hand could give me a run for the money...

I could not give any comments on Tekken and Transformer, but Fearless is indeed a trick machine and is better than the Sea Devil.

Tekken Devil has arrived in record time from Canada here in Texas.

Its a work of art in its construction as is typical of Lams Kites. I am told Lam is looking at how to Vent it. :-)

It is a Tekken

I believe it is the first of its kind. Maybe we will get lucky and see a picture or video of this new creature it its natural element.  :D


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: rudyy on February 20, 2013, 09:57 AM
OK.  So the frame is a Tekken frame with upper Sea Devil and lower Fearless appliques and Tekken eyes.

Anyway, the kite looks cool.  I would call it Tekken Fearless Devil.


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: kepople on February 20, 2013, 10:13 AM
Lam and I had many discussions on the subject of what to call it, and we settled on "Tekken Devil" or Tek Devil.
I kept the eyes and asked him to add the blades at the wing tips for more Tekken identity. I like the way it came out and a perfect alternative for those who are not a fan of the Sabers...
next I believe he has a vented plan in the works for this scheme...


Title: Re: New Sky Sport Design Kite: Tekken DOA
Post by: Tmadz on February 20, 2013, 10:56 AM
IMHO, that is the best looking kite by Lam I've seen yet and you guys post a lot of pictures of Lams kites. Crisp contrast between the black curves and white sail. Just enough elements of color to complement. Truly beautiful piece of art and we haven't even seen it fly yet.

'Vented' is my downfall :-[ :-X :'(

I realize George Orwell's 1984 Newspeak was not real.

But this phrase has got to be doubleplusungood:

Vented std/Light/SUL Tek Devil

Is that one kite model with all those attributes (as only Lam could do of course),

or is there more than one model buried in there?  ::)
