This free kites newsletter arrives in your email near the end of every month. It's a fun publication that's mainly for single-line fliers and builders. Is that you?
Currently, in addition to a short editorial, each mail-out features:
"What Kite Is That?"
This free 95-page e-book is full of interesting background information on Stunt, Power, Box and Asian kites. It's just a quick 2.5Mb download.
The comprehensive and clickable Table of Contents makes it easy to find and go straight to any topic of interest.
There are plenty of illustrative photos of modern kites, and historical topics are not forgotten either.
When your subscription is confirmed, it's easy to download the e-book via the supplied link. Enjoy! Here's what one satisfied subscriber had to say...
"I just downloaded your 'What kite is that' pdf file and skimmed through it. Very nicely put together! I look forward to reading your newsletters as they come."
- Robert P. (Canada)
Whether you are a first-timer, or you have been buying / building / flying for years, I'm sure you will enjoy being kept up to date with all the latest kite making and single-liner action here at My Best Kite!
Small bamboo-skewer kites and large to very large Dowel kites have been covered in the past and are well documented on this website. However...
The current focus is soft kites, and this is reflected in the newsletter these days. No skewers or dowels or anything else to find or work with - just plastic sheet and tape. Zero set-up time too, out in the field!
All in all, there is plenty of inspiration to build something and / or get out and do some flying! Since it started several years ago, this kites newsletter hasn't missed an issue.
