Kites like the talon, cosmic and ds vent have Dacron to reinforce the sail where the vent holes are. How do you get the Dacron to stick well to the icarex? Is there a special adhesive or do people just rely of the adhesive Dacron you can buy off the shelf? thanks  Cool

Adhesive dacron is used for sail numbers on dinghy and yacht sails, so there is no worry about the stuff falling off.  It's a much bigger issue if you want to remove it!

I've got the same.

Don't you have my Vented TNT? I used it there.
