I must apologise for this thread but I got bored ! I have always wondered if it is possible to get a flexifoil stranger to fly more like a modern trick kite and to include more tricks in it's repetoire. Finally curiousity got the better of me and this was the result.
The kite is a Stranger UL so it has an icarex sail already. Mods include:-
1. New double standoffs with screw in fittings
2. New bridle arrangement
3. Weighted tail
4. Yoyo glides (a la akuji)
5. Taped nose so it wraps up better
6. Nitro Lower Spreaders
7. Standoff fittings
8. R Sky type t piece
So what's it fly like? It needs some more testing but at the moment it can do backspins, multiple lazies, yoyos, comete (just), slot machines, flic flacs. I hope to report back further soon
