Big Diamond Kite

I took the kite plans on Tim's site here (thanks Tim) and stepped them up. This big Diamond kite is 8 ft. at the tips. I just flew it in Tybee Island Georgia on Oct/9/2010. It went right up and flew in very light wind.
This kite will break down to 4 ft. long and about 3 inches in diameter. The dowels are 1/2 inch wood and the kite is rip-stop nylon. It was a lot of work to build but when I saw it fly, it was all worth it.
