Thanks...now all I have to do is get me a Fighter...some line...etc. I did go to Fighter Kite Central...and saw how Reed sets up the forked line with the swivels...still...would be neat to hook up with one of these Fighter Kite guys...always found it easier if you can find someone who is good at something you want to learn...seek them out. Any Fighter kite flyers here in the South? Like GA.  KY.  ALA.  Carolina's? Or maybe in  OHIO, Illinois, Indiana.
Gonna check out Bruce's You Tube vids...maybe will end up making a couple...dunno. If any of you guy's see this...PM me or something.

Thanks,
Chris

Definitely watch Bruce's video's and plan on making your own.

But as an alternative One World Trading (online sales) imports Indian fighters and sells them dirt cheap, they even have a couple designed by Bruce Lambert, the Fusion series, that are manufactured in India for a more then reasonable price. You'll want the Mylar kites and reinforcing the edges with a bit of tape would be a good idea. A short tail say 3' of crepe paper might slow the Indians down just a bit without causing too many tangles.

We want more video  Wink

BTW did you catch the video of 29 fighters on one line?
