Last week a
long time fellow Psycho flying friend
long time fellow kiting friend who also likes the Psycho sent a note inquiring about the availability of Lil Red. Apparently he has beaten the snot out of his kites and is looking for a new Psycho. I responded that I've grown quite attached to Lighthouse Red and intend to keep her. I did suggest that I still had the templates and could make another sail. An email conversation resulted in this:
I rather like it!
This will be the first Psycho "Pro" to leave my workshop. If you happen to see this kite flying off the back of a Harley with the driver/pilot in black leather, just remember that pink looks awesome on a black kite.
I sent a note to the Flexifoil folks asking if they wanted to start up this kite again. Have not heard back yet but am sure the Psycho is on the agenda for the next board meeting.
If anyone knows how to get word to Andy Preston, I'd love for him to see this thread and to know his kites are still generating interest.
If you want to know where the "Mojo with attitude" got the 'tude, look no further. For those that think a Psycho with a 'sane' bridle is no longer a Psycho, you have not flown one with tail weights and stoppers
