Sleeving lines

How does the factory get the sleeving on the ends of the lines?

Do they just buy some sort of line and remove the inner core or do they get it with no core?

Re: SS Rev twisted bladder

Made a little cardboard sled and it worked perfect first try. Thanks for the tip!

SS Rev twisted bladder

06-08 model kite.

Had to reglue the valves. Had the entire leading edge bladder out. Have had it back in numerous times.

Problem is when the kite is pumped up; the bladder starts to rotate and sucks in the valves second to last on the outboard.

What is the technique to get it to not roll?

Re: paulownia wood

Maybe it’s been done before but I thought it was interesting to see short pieces turned on end to make up a sheet vs’s strips:

Worth a try; you might try washing it with this stuff:

Re: Short video of 2018 Rebel in light wind

It really was blowing 1-4mph. I can give you the persons phone number that was flying it. The Wind meter on his vehicle was also his.

Short video of 2018 Rebel in light wind

Impromptu video(portrait mode) just showing it in flight. Static flying a 10m in 1-4mph Wind and no higher then a 5-6mph “gust” measured on a ground wind meter at the location. Seems like not too long ago an average size kite would struggle to fly in that light of wind? http://www.youtube.com/watch?...
