Just to be clear with everyone, I really don't want to bring this message up but now is time people want to know the true so everyone can understand better. This Vietnamese kite is nothing new, This kite called in the earlier day is The Moon kite and have been around hundred of year ago in Viet Nam. I making this type of kite out of Bamboo and Paper when I was a small kid and paper in Ha Noi city of Viet Nam, around 1967 to 1973. Today I using Carbon rod and Nylon or Icarex, so the kite can last longer. Also can be fold it up for traveling. The kite has the Quater Moon shape and that is where the kite came from. If you look at the quater Moon you will see the kite.
Now talking about the true between Mr Cao and I. Last year I talk to Mr Cao how to make this kite, where to put the screen, how big and how tall. He made the kite and I working on the the bridle earlier last year, so we can do business together, Mr Cao and I was very good kite friend for 5, 6 year, never have any problem, helping him running the festival and doing many demo at the festival in VT Viet Nam. At the Kite Festival last " May 8th to the 12th of 2014 " I spend few day at the Vung Tau Kite Festival working on the bridle to make this kite turn in to quad line so I can do a demo at the festival, the kite fly ok not as good as the rev. I find out this kite can do some trick, backward, forward and spinning. After the festival. Few day later, time to go home, I got a call from Mr Cao need to chat with me, I am in the midle of lining up to go in the Airport, I said talk to me when I get home. When I got he sent me an email and said in this world can not trust any one. I was confuse at that moment. Now I read again to make sure I understand better. what he mean is he can not trusted me to do business together. Let me tell you my friend, we haven't do anything business together yet and he already said that. I knew some thing funny going on. we talk back and ford one or two time and not getting any where. I was confuse and not happy at all and I don't want to think and put more time on this kite any more. Few month later, Mr Cao start to talk to me on FB. Just want make it short. What he want is either I do it or let him him do it, he said has a lot of money, he does not need money from selling kite. All he want is to be the first person think of this Idea turning the Vietnamese flute kite in to a quad line kite. so he can be famous and everyone know him. He does not want my name in there with him but he was wrong, all the Vietnamese kiter and everyone at the festival know I am a person working on this kite. The last line he said you go your way and I go my way. Why, I find out Mr Cao now have Stephen Hoath helping him on the bridle to make the kite fly a bit better than before over in England. So he have new person helping him and dump me. That is no a good thing to do mr Cao. Everyone know me, what I can do with kite for year, winning and travel so many place that you can even think of. Mr Cao is not a Designer of anything, he is a kite flyer and running the kite festival in Viet Nam that is all. Before anyone say anything to anyone, make sure you know who is this person back ground, either a kite Designer, a Doctor or anything... Don't make it up and make people confuse. If he a designer than everyone should know about him. why suddenly show up. Must be drop out from the sky.
Of course time goes by he learn how to make make kite. I even help him talking to him on the phone many time, how to sew kite and what to do many things, this is good to help, I don't have a problem with that, I love helping other people for year.
The bottom line is. Now Mr Cao want to make this kite and put on the Market, making money by him self and noit with me, I got his message now and I don't have problem with that. Why Mr Cao doesn't want to tell me right from beginning. running around wasting my time working with him. Don't lie to me that he does not need money and just want to be famous. BS always go against you later. The true hurt. that is the story everyone need to know so we can go back to work and don't wast anymore time on this matter. Bla Bla Bla all day does not going any where at all. Spend quality time with your family and fly kite have fun is better.
BTW, I have a lot more new Idea and awesome bridle for the Quater moon kite more than you can think of. I only show to the people that I can trust
I learn my lesson for life. Never again. My friend thank you for reading this message. Good luck to Mr Cao and Stephen Hoath for your future. Sell a lot of kite....
One thing I don't understand, why that people wanted everything and broke off their Family and friend. Why
Do you think you can take it with you when you die ?
Have a nice day.
