Hey guys!
I figured it's been long enough without custom WM's in my bag, so in a few months of saving up in the 'kite fund' they're finally here! We got some video on both. The standard video will be expanded in the near future (and get different music) because we didn't get a whole ton on it before the winds died. This was RIGHT after a big storm passed us, and you can see the dark clouds in the background. All in all, it was a good wednesday night when the storms passed (took long enough though..  Cheesy ). Anywho, Enjoy!

Standard-- 
Skyburner WidowMaker Standard



UltraLite-- 
Skyburner WidowMaker UL

Looks good.  Glad you are finally flying the right thing.  Did you go with the turbo on both?

Hey John,
Yeah, the turbo's on both. I'm really REALLY loving the UL. Wish you were here so we could fly some pairs!
Glad you are finally flying the right thing.

As usual very nice flying and I see you are still maintaining the purple and black theme.  How did Lady Gaga get into your music collection?  Was she an elective in the music school curriculum?

Believe it or not, me and 2 other horn players in the studio at CCPA did all of her popular songs for 10 horns and tuba and played it for a horn studio recital haha! Because I was arranging everything, I had to buy all the songs (I hate going to youtube and constantly pushing 'play' over and over) that were in the showcase. This was one of them.

Thx for video - some of those combos are SWEET. 

The UL seems to have a slower and more relaxed looking trick pace that looks great.

I was considering adding a WidowMaker to my collection sooner or later, now, after watching these videos..., I think it'll be sooner than later ;-)
Congratulations to both of you, pilot and camera man, excellent videos!

Very nice combos especially on the UL. Did you put more weight ok it? Compared to my WM UL, I have an impression it does.

Hey guys thanks for the comments.

Darryl, nope! It's stock. I got the 2 kites the same day we filmed everything. I'm falling in love with it (UL) the more and more I even assemble the thing. Looks like this ones going to be 'THE' UL of the bag, next to the Ocius UL.

Those are some really nice videos, Devin. Hopefully you get a chance to upload the standard video to Vimeo, the quality seems a lot better in thier viewer for some reason. I hope you get some recognition for increasing sales at Skyburner... I now know that I need a WM UL to go with my WM standard ! Some good lookin' kites, some great lookin' flying !

Good choice, Gerardo. I can't say enough about how impressed I am with my WM, I've been spending a lot of time flying it lately, and after seeing these videos, it really inspires me to see what the kite is capable of. Mine came without a weight, and it can be flown in 2-3mph beach wind pretty easily.

So the phone call was a ploy for me not to attend Angry Huh  hehehehe . weather was so bad I am shocked at video's.  Did You change the colors of the kites ?? Shocked Not same same on Monday...
just could not take the ride in bad weather Cry

Kite Flyer's, Grin
If you do not own a Widow Maker. Cry  Do it now.  Someone has a used std. for sale on swap meet. BUY IT !!  Roll Eyes If not order one today. Tongue  You will not be sorry.  I have a nice group of ten kites.. I started flying my WM in April..check out early video's.  Things got better for me  becuase of the kite.  In comp. two weeks ago I did a really nice fade.  Grin  Held it for a long time.  The WM ul was perfect for the move.   Huh
Save your money, rob mama or a bank,sell the dog,cat,house.  Get a second job,( what really works)... Tongue DECLARE JULY 1st CHRISTMAS..yep !!  Cheesy just read it on the internet so it must be.. Now go buy that Kite for yourself. Kiss

A Must kite for novice flyer's who want to get better. Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool Cool
