Sorry, but I think Thief was telling Sean there is a reputable dealer in Canada.  The GCKC is a rip off. The owner is a liar and an idiot of the highest order.

thief did point out a good seller here in Canada. I am working on a deal on an R-Sky at the moment. Hopefully it works out all right.

well, I finally pulled the trigger on an R-Sky kite. Bought a Manga today. It will be a while before I see it, and it probably won't get much flying in before the snow flies up here, but it will be nice to have a great kite for next spring.

Now I just have to wait for it to get here.  Tongue Tongue Tongue Tongue Embarrassed Cry Undecided Cheesy

Any opinions on the Manga would be greatly appreciated. Just to help me tide over the time until I have it here in my sweaty little mitts.


Cheers,
Sean

The Magna would look awesome against a snow white background.  I couldn't even imagine waiting for spring.   Winterize the pilot....your Manga won't know the difference I promise.

we'll see. I am pretty sure I won't be able to leave it alone that long. Its just that the wind is really nasty here once the snow is on the ground. Its either 30mph or nothing normally in the winter.

If I do get it flying in the winter I will take some shots of it for all on the board to enjoy.

Sean

that is probably the kite then. I really cannot wait till it gets here, but the wind today was about 40mph today. Thought about putting the Micron up on 150# lines briefly, but thought that the wind was a bit high for that.

I will have to do some glamour shots when the kite gets here.

Get some spare Icone for the ULE at the same time you get the kite...

is Icone more fragile than normal spars? I don't know much if anything about Icone, so any help here would be appreciated. I do know that the LEs were changed from yellow to red Icone.

On that particular Manga, I changed the stock Icone Yellow ULE rods to Red for greater durability. Those Yellows (think 2pt) are a little fragile when doing tricks like the Crazy Copter. The Reds worked out fine.

Hey Chilese,

Randy's kites create their own wind. 

Heck, so do I but I cannot throw it far enough to keep a kite aloft.  Huh
