This is a picture of me earlier in the year when I went up in the Space Shuttle. When Lam found out I planned on stowing away, hitching a free ride on the Shuttle and flying in space, he didn't want anything to do with it "officially". But secretly and only late at night, he quietly built this custom Fearless designed to "fly" and "trick" using nothing but solar wind. I'm not sure what the heck he used for the sail material but in Earths atmosphere it was bright white. Once exposed to the solar winds it turned a vibrant hot pink.
I have to say it was the ultimate kite experience and I don't think I'll ever be able to top it, ever. I was so high on the experience words just can't describe it man. I recommend everyone give this a try, you won't regret it! (Send me a PM & I'll give you all of the details on how to pull it off)
The Fearless VSW (Vented Solar Wind) Specs =
First off, Lam said it uses a newly designed "rocket" bridle, something about a turbo not working in space. I don't know the difference, I just fly these things. Other than that & the super secret sail material, the specs are the same as the new vented Fearless. Build quality, of course, is flawless.
What about the flight report? Well what can I say? This thing tricks out of this world. One pop backspins FOREVER, almost like there wasn't any resistance at all! I could roll this baby up until I ran out of lines with one input! I could go on and on about the tricking virtues of the Fearless VSW but the bottom line on this baby is it's..... SWEET!!!!!!!!!
The only problem is the price is kind of high but what the hell, you only live once.
