Sound & motion, wear & tear on the PFK

I have just had a look at the excellent instructions prepared for Michael Layefsy by Paul’s Fishing Kites and,  after a tough session with it yesterday when it did the ‘heeling’  thing in 12 to 20mph, I went and had a look at the thing carefully…the damage is on the trailing edge where the wind spilled by the kite ripples the fabric to make the characteristic PFK roar…and all the flapping has worked the stitching loose. This is bound to get the kite out of balance in gust!

Thanks to Barry Carpenter for the comment at pfk-elastic and I’m now off to hunt out needle and thread.
