Hi. Went down to the field today for a few hours of kite flying and took some pictures. Figured I'd share.

Rode the scooter down to Dorchester.



The only way I can think of to transport a kite on it is to strap it to a backpack with a bungee cord. It kinda sucks, but it works.



I brought the Transfer xtr - figured after I posted that on the deserted island topic, I couldn't go wrong.









Fancy stake.



Flying a short set today - 50'





The end.

Beautiful kite!  Going kiting with a style!
A few questions: Where did you buy it?  Does it come with Yo Rings?  I only knew Atelier Slash, Transfer xt.s, and Transfer xt.z.  What is "xt.r" and what does it stand for - Standard, Ul, SUL? 
A request: A few video clips would be greatly appreciated.

I couldn't say for sure but the xt.r might mean something like 'regular'. The xt.s is a bigger kite and the 's' might mean something like 'super-sized'. I flew my xt.r on vacation at the beach a few weeks ago and it was real nice to fly. I haven't quite mastered slots on Deep Space or Nirvanas but I was able to do them again and again on the xt.r. It loves to turtle too and do all the rotational kinds of tricks. I flew the xt.s a year or two ago and didn't really like the extra size of the kite. For me, it was just too big.

Yep - what Bob said.  No yo-rings...I don't think those ever really took off (pardon the pun).

I ordered it from L'Atelier through Ramlal Tien.

 All of the l'Atelier kites I've owned / flown do excellent Slots. You can count on sweet Flic Flacs, two pop roll ups and backspins too Grin

Got the stake from A Wind of Change - if you scroll down their home page, you'll see the stakes on the left.
