Black Diamond

We had a kite derby for cub scouts. We made a sail kite and a box kite in the two weeks we had to prepare for it. Both crashed and burned during their their test run. So in desperation we got on the Internet and found this easy, great flyer.

With stuff found around the house we had a kite flying in about 30 min. It truly did waggle a lot, but it went up and stayed up.

Everyone there was pleased with my 8 year old son's kite and surprised to see a homemade kite fly. The weather was perfect with winds probably under 10 mph. Thanks for saving us!
