Re: W-Shaped 4 Line Kites (Non Rev)

All right, but apart from the WS4LK, sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh water system and public health, what have Revolution ever done for us? :biggrin:


On a serious note I notice that 4mkites/Albatross are making different sized ws4lk now so if you're doing a purchase watch those LE measurements or you might end up with something that doesnt quite fly the same as a 1.5 Rev and parts non interchangable. Which of course Alba kites dont anyway because they're all made of cheesecloth, bamboo and parcel string :wink:
Clearly, I'm part of the problem.

For those of you/us on Facebook, there is a user called 'china-kite manufacture' going round. Judging by the pictures on his site, this one seems to be one of the bad boys - Exact copies of all sorts of Benson, rev and other designs, in some cases (benson) with the bracing intact too. That's what I call a rip off, and to be condemned IMHO.
