Stained glass windows floating in the sky! Congrats! I have not sewn a kite in 16 years. Yours have given me another jab in the creative direction. Well done, sir.

Hello,
  Well I tried something new, some what. I made a Pam Flute kite. I seen it at this address

http://www.ict.griffith.edu.au/anthony/kites/panflute/

I liked what it looked like and how you made it. So Last night I made a 1/2 scale.

there is no wind today ,what's new, so her is a photo setting on the ground waiting for take off. The tower said stay put.




So, after about a hour a short blast of wind came, for about 45 sec.
here what happen





even higher





that all for now, I am going enjoy flying this kite, if the wind ever comes.

Hi,
  I got my small foil done and making the line sets for it.
Build a bridle board to do it. It work fast and good.





I should have done this a long time ago. I just kept putting it off.





But now I have one that can do 2 lines at one time.





Well back to work
