Just a shot of the 50 count Prism Micron Stack that set the new world's record today at Ocean Shores WA. 'Festival of Colors'.  The stack was flown for over five minutes and performed more than the 3 required full loops to shatter the previous record of 26 or 28, said record not fully understood by this reporter at the present time.  Paul Debakker was the pilot and the event was documented on video by the owners of said Microns- MTP Studios, which is currently documenting indoor and outdoor kiting.

It was a brilliant day, a brilliant event and fun was had by all in attendance.

Ahh! Good, good, but it is too artistic and allows us to see little performance and flying...  :-[

In any case, great record!
I like the image of the strong man helping out the pilot  :)

They might be Microns, but of course there are fifty of them!

That video was taken last month at Rockaway Beach.  It shows the stack in the air, but was there for a short time.  The pilot was Spence Watson with Matt Cyphert holding on to him.  I'm sure Matt is working on a video of the Ocean Shores record.

2003 Berkeley Kite Festival

205 stack of hyper-kites IIRC.
He didn't make the required 2 loops in opposite directions.
Although he did fly the stack for over 5 minutes.
The launch dragged his body forward about 30 yards.

Several pictures start here:

I have a video of the record, but don't have the time to process it and get it up online.
MTP productions will have it done proper before long, I'm sure.  ;D

I would have the video up already but I've been busy flying 50 microns all day.

What would be the world record for stacked Nirvanas? Two maybe.

Can you take world records for specific models?

I'm sure Mike must have several world records for some

of his oldsters.

Hey guys I was there to witness the 50 microns It was pretty cool,
I do have to say the pilot could of used a few more pounds on him, they were pulling pretty hard
when in the center of the wind window.
Loved the color arrangement but didn't get any video most of my amazing visions
unfortunately are in my memory only oh well!

yep there it is. its fun to fly. still trying to dial in the tuning. 25 i can fly all day every day. 50 thats a chore and takes 3 people to fly.

Wow, excellent!

Well done!

However, the structure looks sooo unstable that is ceases to look like fun and becomes more of a constant suffering and fight against complete desynchronization.
Nice as a record but not as a pleasure activity.

Nonetheless, congrats!

Best looking stack ever!
You can see The Microns evil IS in disguise,its good looks do nothing to hide its insanity   :o
Its gang mentality makes it a bigger danger that provides nothing but constant suffering,  >:(
Oh wait,its just as evil on its own,   ;)
Thanks and enjoy your success as much as we have!  8)
That was HOTSTUFF  :P
