Bigger, Better, Higher!


April 18, 2011

Jadon posted about the kites we made the other day. Since they were so successful I wondered what would happen if we made one three times that big. First we made one with a tarp and some metal hanging rail we use for installing cabinets. It flew but the metal rail would bend, so we made a better one out of wood and plastic.

It's eight feet long and flies better that I expected and with less wind than I thought. Since we made it we've not had any really nice windy days. But on gusty days we can fly it during a gust.
