Davide sent me notification last week (in response to me asking the same question) that the plans would not become public as we originally hoped. He indicated that the kite may be made by someone. I'm sad not to get the plans, but hoping to see the kite available to purchase in the future.
Hmmmmm....interesting! As disappointed as I am ... that I won't be able to build one for myself ...I hope that Davide will finally be getting some financial compensation for all the excellent kite designing he has been doing! It's ONLY right that he should!
