cheers for the advice, I actually tested sticky back insignia cloth,
and it just doesn't stick well to dacron, but sticks fine to mylar
like old kites. I ended up using some ados contact adhesive
(waterproof, flexible, permanant), and cleaned the sticky glue off
the insignia cloth with solvent, and applied contact adhesive.
Much stronger, and cause my kite is a dark colour, you don't notice
the repair, and only need to patch the inside.
