Cheap quad piggies

Tue Aug 12, 2008 9:54 pm

I have just spotted a German Website offering cheap quad piggies at a reduced price of £55

www.ahlerts.de

Could be fun! :cool:

I have ordered from this shop twice before and they have been excellent

This is a rip-off!

'Piggies' are what I use at the end of my bridle legs when testing a kite.

I'm sure there's a patent infringement here somewhere!

it doenst fly very well but 55 quid is a good price -
you need quite a lot of wind to fly it and it's better to fly it with other friends for of pig team -
