Nice editing on your video. It shows the kite very well. Makes me want to get the tripod and camera out.

I did a double take and had to pull out a picture of my Joel Scholz bat, somewhat similar!

It's always good to see a Dutch design make its appearance abroad.

The official name for the kite is: Vluis

So could one buy this kite, or are there just  plans for the home builder to build one?

Aww thanks Kevin.  ;D

Get the state land sailing championships out of the way and I might have to make some bat shaped sails. ;)

Be aware, the vluis is original designed by Kees Buurman, a dutch artist, and is free to built. Eric Siaw took these plans and made some changes to improve the control over the kite (shape of the kite, bridle).  He published on facebook a very detailed photo shoot over the making. The result ..... Well you saw the video.... 👍👍
