Has anyone out there on rec.kite ever tried to make their own CF or
Graphite or other composite spars, ferrels, fittings etc?
I would be interested in trying it if it isnt too hard or expensive. My
thought came from watching a show where students were weaving some sort
of composite shell for a solar race car, and I thought it might be
possible to create spars with unusual shapes (other than straight) for
unique kite designs. It might also be useful for Kite Photography rigs
and things like that. If nothing else, I would be interested in how
these materials are used, formed, cured, where to buy supplies etc.
