I used about 2 ft. of electrical tape to attach my cell phone in video mode to my kite! Doesn't get much cheaper than that!

E-book special of the month...


I've been flying and posting about the
Dowel Roller recently.

Get the e-book for making this attractive light-to-gentle breeze design.

Substitute a thicker vertical spar and soft Tyvek for plastic, and you have a gentle-to-moderate breeze kite instead.

The e-book is a PDF file - which means printable instructions to refer to while you make the kite. It also means convenient off-line access if that suits you better.

"30+ years ago, I tried making a kite using the 'instructions' in a free kite-safety booklet. What a disappointment for a young boy.

 Your instructions and methods are wonderful. You help the builder to focus on accuracy, without making it hard. Also, you use materials that are durable, yet cheap!"
