Excellent news, Yan. :thumbsup:

Now all I need is to go and fly with someone who owns a video camera, coz I don't.

And if anybody doesn't know who Jon Ward is, it's me. Suffice to say that it's taken me four years to find a pair of straps I really like. Several iterations of material and a minor tweak or two to Tim's design, but the end result has been worth it. If Carlsberg made kite straps, they'd be hard pushed to better these........but then I might be a bit biased. :?

Now if Tim would just make them in quantity and flog them from his site....... ;)

Bravo, might need to get the video camera out, now we've finally moved the small stuff out of storage I have access to it again.

Ermmm... yeah, - not flown for a month or more really - going out for a session today, but looks a bit grizzly out there just now. Will bring the camera to Hinckley on Sunday for the usual last gasp effort. ;-)

Anyone on the field on Sunday wants to enter without too much effort applied - I'll stand with the camera for a bit and pull stuff together.
