Just back into kiting after a 20 year break in the Essex area. I was preparing a flexifoil stacker for a holiday with my nephews and was bitten by the bug again.
Currently sporting 2 Flexifoil Stacker 6's, Flexifoil Psycho, Aircraft Hat Trick (which is waiting for spares) and just taken delivery of a shiny new Reloaded.
The Hat Trick is 20 odd years old and all the rubber parts had perished, I gave one of the connectors a nasty look and it snapped in half, upon checking the rest they were in a similar condition.
The Psycho was in remarkably good condition. No perished parts- even the rubber bands that pull the sail down to the end caps were still in one piece.
I tied the sail down instead of using the rubber bands and it was airborne without much trouble.
The Stackers, what can I say? grin factor 10 all the way!
Hope to enjoy many more threads here in the future
