Surprised It Was Still Flying

(1/1)

chilese:
Several weeks ago, the nose on my Benson Inner Space finally gave in.
Both upper leading edge tips spreaders had worn through the thin nose material.

I finally got around to breaking down the kite to have a new nose put on.

The ferrule between the upper and lower leading edge had broken free
of the glue and worked its way down until maybe 1/4" was exposed and
providing the connection.

Considering that I am not overly kind to my SULs when doing tricks, the
fact that the kite had not broken some time before the nose wore out is
shocking.

A good stubborn kite that wanted to keep on flying when others would
have given up. Thank you Tim Benson.
Whichever angel is the patron saint of sport kites, my thanks.

Sorry John, my english is poor as you know.  :(

But really "Upper Spreader" or "Upper Leading Edges" ?

I like the Innerspace, a great SUL/Indoor kite !

Your English must be better than mine.

Corrected to upper leading edge tips.

Thanks.  :)
