Barn Door Kite - Pretty Good

by Ian
(USA)

This kite flies great. I made the Dowel Barn Door kite for a school project and it worked perfectly.

(T.P. - Thanks Ian, glad it worked out for you! Sometimes people have difficulties with adjusting the bridle correctly, but it seems you read the instructions carefully and got it right. A nice thing about a kite with an upper bridle loop is how you can trim the kite left or right just by sliding the knot across one way or the other. This handy for correcting a small tendency for the kite to pull to one side when the wind gets a bit stronger.

You've succeeded with the Barn Door - how about having a go at the Dowel Sode next. It's a bit of a hot rod!)
