Shame it didn't fly well, its certainly pretty. I cut a 85% sail to see how bad it was without adding a little to the billow (usually a must when reducing a kite) but its sat there un-sewn for ages
That new layout does look good but I can't help thinking that layout would probably lend itself to an attempt at broadseaming.
BTW what you said about modifying plans, anyone can do whatever with them especially if you send me a photo
Although the design is a bit long in the tooth now; there are much better, modern kites around.
