Hi,

I'm now in NY and on my arrival at the hotel I had a little present!
Of course, although I've come to NY for work, today it was Sunday and I couldn't miss the opportunity to try it out!
So off I went to Liberty State Park in NJ as RobB suggested: a bit farther away than I thought and I had "to walk the mile" to get there! Moreover it was so incredibly sunny and hot that I got much more sun that I needed  Huh
So I currently glow in the dark with a red fluorescene...  Embarrassed

Anyway, here are some pictures to prove I did and a (crummy) video of the maiden flight.
BTW I already love this kite! Thanks Jon!

It's all I got because I was alone and couldn't frame the scene correctly...  Sad
Although the framing is not good you can see how sweet & smooth the Aura performs the Slot Machines.

Excellent kite!

Glad you got your kite.

Can't think of a better kite to travel across the ocean to get.  Grin

Thanks for the video

You look like a happy man.

That last picture is basically where I camp out when at LSP.

Nice kite. Wink

Ara, I'm glad you found your way. The picture with you standing with your new kite is priceless. Glad the wind wasn't too much, looks like you were even able to trick a little. Too bad there weren't any other kiters to meet up with, but from the lack of people in general, I guess you got there nice & early.
Sorry to hear the sun did a number on you, I guess you weren't ready for nice weather in New York !


LSP = Liberty State Park...

How long are you going to be in town ? Any more flying on the calendar ?

Yay yay and yay again! I'm so glad you like it.
I didnt have time to sign it when I saw it for a few seconds, but if we ever meet on a field or if you're back for work and something works out I'll sign the TE with Jons name. I'm completely ecstatic that you're liking the kite already. Looks like we're the only 2 that will have the 1 colored kites Smiley Enjoy it! PM me with any questions should anything arise. Nice video!

Great! I hope this can become feasible some day.
I would very much like to meet many of you in the forum sometime in the future.

And thanks for your nice words on the video, but it is really crummy in frameing the activity. I completely miscalculated where the kite would be...  Roll Eyes

Hi RobB, I'll be here until Thursday but unfortunately no more time slots for flying.
I'm attending a conference in my research field and it is very dense...
But Sunday was so good I'm feeling really energetic.  Grin

Great to see you made it to NY.  I'll be there in August to visit family so I'll have to take a trip over to LSP to get my flight time in and lay claim to having flown in the park that Ara and his Aura flew in!!  Cheesy

Glad your enjoying your new and majestic Jon T. SUL!!
