Just thought maybe there might be some interest in this here as well.  I think it's a decent 7 minute break from whatever you are doing:  a little John Sco', and a little kiting.

It's mostly not me flying (my camera), and in the last little bit, there is some swearing.

Hmmm...thought this would make some folks happy.  Maybe not?  Anyway, for those that care, four VF13 entries are being pulled from this session.  I thought it was a'ight at least.   Roll Eyes

Hey Obi...

That's some nice flying... It must be nice to have a bunch of talented people to fly with. You guys fly on some LONG lines... maybe it's just the camera perspective, but it looks like some of the shots, the kite was on lines longer than 100ft.

In the video, we are all flying with 35m (about 115').  I fly the XTs is on 45m when the conditions permit Cool (including in this video).

Thanks for the comments.  I have to admit, I was wondering if folks watched even  Cheesy ?

Of course we watch....we just don't say anything.  We don't want you to get...too big of an EGO    Cheesy ...or else you might not want to fly with some of us!   Kiss

heck yeah, i watch every video people post on here (of flying). i enjoy them all, and encourage people to post them, because i know it takes a considerable amount of effort to get a video all the way to the forums.

i want to let people know their efforts are acknowledged and appreciated but i don't always have comments directly on the flying as if i'm honest, you all fly rings around me.

i do watch, and i do enjoy. thanks obi.  Smiley
