Monster Butterfly Kite

by Martin Karásek
(Chzech Republic)

First flight out in the field.

First flight out in the field.

The "Butterfly" kite pictured was produced in 2008. We managed to break it 3 times during testing! Here are some basic specs...

Height = 252 cm
Width = 246 cm
Weight = 4.5 kg

Length of the tail = 1100 cm
Weight of the tail = 1.1 kg
Length of flying line = 120 m

Skeleton is made of wooden sticks 25x25mm (the middle one) and 20x20mm (on sides) connected by a metal cross. The sail material is linen.

To get the kite up in wind is easy but landing this thing is a little more difficult!

"Love the easy to understand step by step instructions, made from next to nothing materials and above all so much fun to fly... cheers Tim for sharing your well thought out pdf kite designs with the whole world.

Very satisfying making your own and watching them get air-born for the first time."

Very detailed and USEFUL information - thanks for such a great book."

"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!"
