Well, it was an adventure, somewhat backbreaking as I did it on the floor, but I learned to sew this thing back together! And it flies!! Well, in fact. I can’t tell a difference, but I’m not a racer, yet. My wife happens to have a good old embroidery sewing machine that worked like a champ once I learned to work it right.

I’m floored, as I thought this kite wast toast!

The story is I looked out and flew it into a tree as I picked up my board and had to cut half the lines and pull it out one side with a car, ripping it in half and then the other side out the other way. Tree was dead but high, couldn’t climb it safely, was in public park so had to remove quick at all cost.
