Starting this new thread to make it easier to find in the future. This will be a series of videos showing how I build kites, and hopefully some good insight for those who want to start making their own.

Tutorial #1 and it's addendum (#1A)

Video #1 is a screen capture looking at www.kareloh.com where the plans can be downloaded, along with some other fun stuff such as a colorizer and building tips for [Return].  Also on www.kareloh.com there are quite a few color examples.  Posted below is the color layout intended for this build.  I'll add photos to the thread to accompany the tutorials.

The addendum is a quick example of why you need to double check your prints - no matter where you get them - to make sure they are printed to the proper scale

And a link to Karel Oh's page where [Return] plans are stored; scroll down the page to find the links to the plans and colorizer.

I should mention that after a quick phone call, the online company I mention in part #1A (the addendum to the first video) did offer me a full refund for the prints that were incorrect.  That being said, I do stand by my advice to print locally to verify the job is done correctly. 

And yes Krijn, 85% can be fun! but I prefer to do it on purpose!  Cheesy

Very cool! I've shared the youtube playlist on the [Return] plan page.
Pls add the #1A episode to this playlist as well.

Just watched this and am very impressed. Well done!

Must look at the others and those to come.

(It raised in my mind a question about calipers, which I won't clutter up this thread on, but pose elsewhere)

Video #4 is up.  Fabric overview and cutting up the panel templates (not exciting yet, but getting there).

Sorry all for the delay in videos, but good news! I have some new footage recorded, which I need to narrate (problem with the original audio).  I'll work on the editing and voice over this week and try to have the next video posted soon.

So for those of you wondering what happened... I had a computer catastrophe about a day after the last post. Unfortunately, I lost about 12 hours of unedited video for this build.  That being said, I now have a new computer and have started back to the tutorials.  I will be able to voice over the original clips of me building the templates (which I have sped up so as not to bore you to tears), and should have a short video on template labeling the same (or next) day.  Hopefully some of you are still keen on watching!

new videos uploading now.  Will post links to all when they are finished.  Had to re-edit some of the early ones due to background music copyright restrictions (leaving the tutorials lacking in the audio realm, my apologies).

Here are links to all episodes.  Some links may have changed since I needed to edit and re-upload some of the videos.
