Need advice to fly 3 - 24in. diamonds on a bar side by side...

(1/5) > >>

whitebirdlover:
I want to layout 3 24in. diamonds on a bar and have no knowledge of what I need. What to use for a bar, lines, etc. This will be flown with a group of 47 other same sized diamonds on single lines for an upcoming memorial fly. Any input very much appreciated...

These are active flyers......but you should be able to do the same easily with diamonds...

What and where for rod stock? I assume short lines to keep kites from tangling? Thanks...

thief:
the rod is a ~2mm fiberglass rod....swivels at either end with ~18" leader lines to the bridle.....

Launching gets dicey as the doves want to go their own way and one pulling hard will pop the other end dove out of the air sometimes.....
but when they get up there they look cool...

Got pix of the diamonds you are going to use?

Karls doves are so cool,  wish I had shot some video but somebody did
