Small find!


Well, I didn't think I'd ever own one due to how seldom they come up for sale and how much they usually go for, but I scored a 6m Phantom from UK. It looks like it's been flown 4-5 times and didn't get dirty. All the zips work too, even on the bag. I'm sure I've just guaranteed myself light winds for the next several IBX events.

I'm not familiar with the kite but was extremely gladdened to hear about "next several IBX events". I've been worried that your move back East was going to put a stop to those for you.

"Those days" on Ivanpah can be beyond wild as we experienced earlier this year. Maybe just a tad short of those gales and we'll all be out with our tiniest kites. :D




Kites:
Born-Kite LongStar-2 (3.5m, 5.5m, 7.5m, 9.5m, 12.5m);
Born-Kite NASA Star-3 (1.5m, 2.5m, 3.2m, 4.0m; z-bridled for handle flying)

Buggy:
Peter Lynn Bigfoot+ modified with VTT rail & seat kit (a seriously great performance upgrade), two sets of Sysmic rims (one set with BigFoot slicks for the "beach" of the Great Salt Lake and the other with 6-ply trailer tires for the Ivanpah playa), and BigKidKites AQR (because it keeps me in the bug and in my marriage)

Don't worry! The event is certainly bigger than just me. Permit goes in this week for 2018.

It most certainly is! You miss my point however Bob. I was specifically referring to my worry that YOU weren't going to show up. :saint:
