Thanks for commenting.

It was a lunch time fly with some Work friends.

Nice steady mild wind.

So what has everyone else been flying?

With the winter weather systems, it is NOT SLK friendly here in the middle of the continent. All of the big kites are cleaned and put away for warmer weather. I need to get a big DC that can handle strong winds.

Must be nice to have workmates to fly with. Not many fliers around here.

Tmadz:
What strength winds are you getting?
Perths strong winds usually only happen when the North coast gets Cyclones.
The main problem is rough/bumpy winds.

I have only managed to get a group out 3 times in 2 years though.
The other Flyer from work has retired now too.

Hi Thief:
Sweet Kite and great location shot.
That kite is awesome......

20 deg C would have been nicer than 20 Deg F.
My picture above was taken on a nice 38C (100F) day.
Much nicer that 20F

Thanks for sharing.
