Re: Chicken Loop Bye Bye?

Don't trust them. They can hook up at the tip where they open. This happens only once the hinge starts to get loose and have a bit of play. Hard to explain without pictures. At the very least they need to be carefully maintained by filing a critical point. But honestly I would not recommend them fo...

Re: Build quality turned to shit

... I wish there was a kite company that would build kites in their own country, ... That would be CrazyFly - https://www.crazyflykites.com/philosophy They have been making their kites in the EU since 2017. So they're from 1999, not 2017, right? That's what their website says.
