Best kite I've ever had!

by Stephen
(Cambridge, WI)

My son got a cheap kite as a gift for his 6th birthday, and it broke in about 20 seconds. He was very disappointed, so I decided to build one.

With 2 mil plastic, two garden stakes (one 3' and the other 1') I used the concept from this article to create the best-flying kite I have ever had. We had a great time!

We bought a 525 foot spool of nylon string and let this kite out about 500 feet. Flew for about 45 minutes without crashing. Thank you so much for posting this information! You saved the day.

Plenty of success out on the flying field is what this site is all about - glad you had a great time with your highly modified Simple Diamond! I notice that you have done something original with the tail too...

You might never see this comment since it is so belated - missed doing it somehow, when you first posted. The only reason for the three-kite rating is that your submission was a bit on the short side.
