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!

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)


Get A FREE E-book!

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!

Could you do me just a small favor though? If you're over 16, please sign up for Tethered Flying - my free twice-per-month publication. Here's just a sampling of the total content...

* 3 "tips of the month" (for beginners, parents & experienced)
* A fresh "photo of the month" (+ link to big hi-res version)
* A fresh "flight report of the month" (my personal flying)
* Updates on the latest board game from my-best-kite.com

Any questions? Here's more info on both the e-book and the newsletter.
