While digging through an old faded kite bag filled with old early 90's kite designs and concept kites...I found this old fun sportkite that Todd and Kathy Goodwind quickly cut and stitched together for a TEST BED radical platform kite...(produced in just 3 basic colors... in which my late friend Paul Dehope and I had the pure pleasure to really put through some weeks of heavy fun filled hammern' flyin time.
I have a great memory..(but a very short one:) however I don't remember if this beauty was ever was mass produced by Kathy Goodwind way back in 1992. This profile of this kite might look very familiar to some radical trick flying addicts? After all of this R&D was finished, Tod and Kathy paid forward this kite (for the memories.)
Shortly after working with this design...for a couple of months....it wasn't too long when we started to see this same basic concept "re-introduced" (a nicer word for "borrowed?"
) This kite with that modified active bridle was a joy to toy with...
Wonder if anyone can PUT A NAME ON THIS KITE....or for that matter what kite this might have been the one that was put into production...some time later?
