Hey OzBumgy, I googled thrustulator and nothing came up, it did suggest “thrustmaster” but that is a PC gaming device, not sure how that would help.

Find a shop that sells muffler bearings and blinker fluid - they usually stock things like thrustulators ...

You could use helium to add a little to the bottom end.

That looks COOL !!
Gotta try that with my Peter Lyn's.

Judging from the spray your putting out under the board ; Ya
get a LOT of power, so i'll go for the Smaller kites in my Venom quiver.

What was the wind blowing that day ?

And was it difficult to launch them ?

That trailing 17m kite can make some wakestyle tricks rather challenging! Perhaps you might consider injecting gasoline into the leading edge, and inserting a spark plug to ignite the kite should the primary release fail.
Are you using the grain or liquid type explosive bolts? The last time I tried the the liquid explosive bolts this was the outcome

Now I’m in the market for two new kites….. I never thought of stacking the Vegas kites they may handle the heat better during ejection!

But I'm also now concerned about re-testing. The last test really played hell with my wife's hair and she still has not fully recovered. I'm just not sure the value of this testing is worth the strain its placing on my marriage.

when we were flying it was 12kn .took some tuning. we tried it with fone bandit iv's. didn't work. i was powered on my 16m rebel. ya, its a lot to hold down. measured and marked lines at 10'. first time he launched it by himself. as it got lighter took one guy per kite. jumping is soo fun! amazing site. rider in the photos is andrew pearl at pocomo point Nantucket, ma.
btw, sorry to interrupt your usual banter children. :baby: post said stacked kites, so, there it is.
