Just finished up my first kite build and figured a SLK would be a good place to start. The colors are white, florescent blue, and hot pink. I built this kite for my newborn daughter (Cailin hence the "C") for when she gets bigger. I took it out and few it this morning and it flew great. Anyways, thanks for looking, just wanted to show it off.  Grin

The build went OK, I used Engvall's plans and didn't find really hiccups. The only real issues I had were my own mistakes with math and sewing. As of three weeks ago I don't believe I had even touched a sewing machine, much less sewed. If I had it to do all over again, I would have probably picked a simpler layout just to learn with. Also, I framed the whole kite in P200, and didn't realize how flimsy the spine would be. Needless to say I have ordered some heftier spars for the spine. It still flew great in 10mph winds with the P200 spars though, I just don't want to take a chance of having a breakage.
