A local flier gave me his Fearless to fix.
It's been cannibalized to fix other kites, and missing 3 standoffs.
I've got the inner standoff length, but can't find the scrap of paper I jotted the outer standoff length.
Anyone know the correct length for the Fearless outer standoffs?
thanks!

That looks exactly the same as the fearless we took a standoff from to fix mine this last week end. Where are you located?

Even I think that's a little disrespectful  Huh

What kites were so fantastic as to warrant dismembering a Fearless ?

My question is how are you guys breaking the standoffs in the first place?!?!  Smiley 

I've flown all of mine for tons of hours - the only time I broke a standoff was when a kid stepped on the kite while it was in the bag.

Well, in my case it was another Fearless. The part didn't really break, it just started to come apart. My guess is it was just a dud piece. It's my first broken standoff, I usually just lose 'em.

Hey Kiten00b

If that Fearless is just laying around for parts, I will take the Sail. I have one that I have completely worn out.

 Fearless Std. outer stand-off measures 10 5/8" from the button on the back of the sail to the end and the inner measures 11 1/8".  Wink
