2 Skewer Rok! Thanks!

by Peter
(Wollongong, Australia)

Built the 2 Skewer Rokkaku last night, and flew it this morning, to see what all this is about ;)

What a brilliant little kite!

It went up with ease in 3 to 5 km/hr breeze, and stayed there, then flew for hours as the wind meter gradually built up to an average 10 kph with a max gust of around 14. Came back down into my hand after hitting 400 feet effortlessly and hanging there seemingly motionless...

Thanks for the plans, instructions and site -
a great resource!
