Just getting back into kites after a long break. I'm meeting a good friend tomorrow to fly and I'm really looking forward to it. I plan to take way more kites than I can possibly fly, and and enjoy good company and purhaps a bit of wind. One kite I was really excited to fly was my Acrobatx. I've looked everywhere and just cant find the thing. A bag, B bag, C bag, storage bins, and no Acrobatx
I used to have a habit of giving kites as gifts. No big deal, when a friend needed a kite more than me, I'd wait 'til he wasn't looking and quietly put it in his car. Later, when it was too late for him to refuse, he would discover his new kite and hopefully make better use of it than me. I'm betting that's what happened. This was a really cool Acrobatx. I had opened the trailing edge and attached the leech line which made it silent, and I'm thinking a few other mods as well. So I just wanted to take a minute and sing the praises of a kite I had a ton of fun with. Not really an old, solid gold worthy kite, but for me it represents a different time. I hope its current owner is enjoying it as much as I did. So tomorrow there will be other kites to fly. I'm taking my Stinger 1000 which will be a real treat. Now that is a solid gold kite. Anyway, nothing important here. Just remembering an old friend.
