All the dumb things

A cautionary tale in development

New Kite

Posted by razzbuffnik on April 16, 2007

Over the last month my wife and I constructed a new kite. 

      

   

It’s called a double star and we got some very well prepared plans from this website

http://www.ucurtma.org/doublestar.html

The material is ripstop nylon and the poles are made of carbon fibre.  The kite is 2M across.

We finally got to fly the kite on the Easter weekend. Naturally the wind speed dropped (as is the way of the world) as soon as we brought the kite out and it hasn’t been windy enough to fly it again for the last three weeks.

    Looks as though you did a fine job with the construction; these doublestars need a good wind to fly.
