I'm just going to leave this right here. It's pretty funny how sensitive people are on this forum, especially considering that most of us are "men" LOL

oh I missed out on this thread haha, have no interest how or where kite are made, figured they are stitched together somewhere cheap lol

from Core kite website it says in metadata:
"<meta name="description" content="Premium kites and boards made in Germany. And engineered with passion since 2001. Home of Cartan Carbon boards, ExoTex/CoreTex kites and glass surfboards.">"

Though everyone knows kites are assembled where labor is cheap. Looks like crazyfly made it work in Europe with experienced people, and added value having factory close by for prototype and quality control is big plus. Though a lot of materials come from out East.

Website specifically states that lines are made in Germany for all their bar.

Carved imperator are made in germany too I believe, not really Core but run by same entity?

You are right. That "bunch of indians" are not experienced people :o
They are not even humans, just a bunch of cheap monkeys that must be hardly controlled to get the job well done :)

They should be gratefull with us, we use their work (kites) with so much joy and pay them with a bunch of rice :thumb:
Of course, Core kites is not their product, its a Germany product, where actually it comes from :evil:

Someone here will be pleased after seeing this video...
Of course the kiter himself has inflated his own kite and spread his own lines...

Actually I meant that in Europe they have less experience than in counties like China or Sri Lanka/India where those industry are more developed. What I meant is that Crazyfly was able to find experienced enough people from textile industry which made the switch possible. Skill wise it's probably the same but advantage of having factory close by probably outweighs extra cost...
