Welcome to the family Henri, pleased to meet you! Have a wonderful time with your new kite, we'd love to see pictures if you can manage it (pictures of the kite on the ground are always an acceptable alternative).

Bri

P.S. Love the architecture of the room in your picture!

Consider me officially jealous Henri, you have a lovely home! :) Have a great first flight and just remember that kite flying is all about having fun not stressing out! So remember to breathe. It will come to you, just relax and keep trying.

thanks all,

i have a question,

what is the weak point of the rev 1.5sle?

look at this:

rev_kite.jpg

at that place,

the tissue begins (already) to unravel..

due to the vibration of the wind (i think so)

is this normal? What can I do to stop this?

can i put a little piece of tape on?

or,

there is no danger, it does not go any further.

(sorry for my bad english ^^)

Henri, no worries, it is only an aesthetic problem. It will not continue to unravel. I have two 2007 B series that have frayed like that, they work just fine. But if it bothers you, some people (very carefully) melt the fabric edge to get rid of those frayed bits.

Incidentally, Bazzer folds the edges over on the b pros to avoid this issue.

As Katrina said, fraying of the ends of the leading edge is very common, especially if the kite drags sideways across the ground.

One thing you can do is use a soldering iron or hot knife to melt the fabric to seal the fraying of the edges. If you are very careful, you can use a match or a lighter, but I do not like having open flame next to the fabric of my kites . . . the fabric will burn if you are not careful, and then you will have a much worse problem than a little fraying.
