Re: I can't beleive nobody has posted anything about what might happen when a hydrogen-filled tube kite Hindenburgs.
I thought I did, yesterday, perhaps twas just a dream, but no, lo behold.....
For all yo hot heads out there I found you some pics on http://www.historicwings.com
of the first ever hydrogen filled kite, was also the biggest kite that has ever flown:
Hot stuff eh?"
Seriously people, joking is fine but don't do it. Nobody uses hydrogen for ballooning anymore, many people have died in the past, watch the Hindenburgh vid at the link above, she was the biggest thing that has ever flown about 3 times bigger than the Titanic which was a pretty hefty motha by all accounts and never even got one meter of the ground.
Only difference, the Titanic took a few hours to go down, the Hindenburgh took 34 seconds. Went down in flames and killed a buncha folks.
Besides no one uses even helium anymore for kiting, don't make any difference, just get a bigger kite or a bigger board for lighter winds.
Stay away from Hydrogen it's true that it isn't that dangeous alone but in the right hydrogen/air mix it will burn your fingers.
Watch the vid
Have fun and stay safe.
