Looks all dressed up and ready for some fun!

I can't wait to see it in the sun.

Thanks again Krijn and Stephen.   Don't worry, I will be making my next one - a UL.

If ever the term "sharp" was appropriate, this is the kite for it.

Most excellent.  Smiley

Nice looking kite!!!  Cannot wait for this Sunday to give it a spin. 

Did not see yoyo stoppers on the leading edges.  Got to have them on for this Sunday in order to have some real fun Smiley

Krijn, I think it looks good!  I like the style of the nose (adopted from the magnet I suspect).  I think I might start doing the same with future builds.  And those colors are sweet! I may need to order some of that teal shade for one of my next projects.

yes, i like this nose better on the sixth sense

don't forget to cut some fabric from the back of the nose, otherwise there will be no nosebag for the spine

I needed a few spars and Stephen is such a nice guy that he agreed to frame and bridle the kite for me.  Smiley

I will get some time on the kite tomorrow - hopefully, we have good winds.

You 're gonna love the 6th Sense Tom! It's an awesome flying machine! Next you will have to get an 85% 6th Sense! I just flew mine today (Saturday) ...and absolutely fell in love with it! It loves to roll up, sits steady in a perfect turtle ....and as you might guess is a Jacob's Ladder Machine! I would opt for a leech line in it though. The UL I made was the first kite I've made in awhile without a leech line & it makes a big difference, in both noise and speed ...also took away some of it's light wind capability, IMO. I may sew another trailing edge on the kite ...a single layer over top of the existing TE just for a leech line!

The Standard 85% I made with a leech line is totally silent except when the wind is really popping ...and it pretty much flew as well in the same light winds as my UL without the leech line, even though it is framed with lighter rods!

Anyway ...sorry for the side-track. I hope you have a great day flying your 6th!  Wink

This Teal version might be one of the best looking SixthSense i've seen so far.
