Have you ever been on a night out where an overweight friend has had too much to drink and you've been left with the responsibility to prop them up until you can get them into a taxi? * If so, you already know what it's like to fly this failed experiment in kite design and need not apply. As for the rest of you, you may have long been intrigued by the inward pointing wing tips and the promise of 3D flying **. Mine has been sitting in my parent's attic for a number of years and now I'm giving it away to the highest bidder!
That's right, I'm not interested in monetary bids: you bid with the number of times you promise to fly it before it ends up in your attic. You can strengthen your bid with a sob story of how you always wanted to try this kite but never got the chance, or by promising to put it on permanent display in your kite exhibition room (you have one too, right?).
It comes with the original box and 'instructions'. I've thrown out the useless instructional video (VHS) but it's available on Youtube. The kite is in fine condition apart from a LE ferrule being the wrong colour and currently held in place with sellotape. Mango colour scheme.
* To stop the kite spinning (in the simplest sense) it's not enough to simply return the lines to a neutral position, you have to apply some opposite lock. You get the hang of it after a while, but then you realise you could have spent that time flying a proper kite.
** Flying uncontrolled on slack lines on a trajectory determined by a couple of settings. For some reason this never caught on.
PS. If this kite is actually now worth hundreds of pounds because there's now a booming market in kite memorabilia then would someone kindly send me a PM telling me where to sell it.
