This 23 ft dragon kite took me about 4 months to design and make and over 30 hrs to sew it. I have shown it in the past at Weymouth and Bristol kite festivals. Hope you like it!

Many thanks for all of your great comments on my dragon kite. Am now finishing off a devil kite of similar size.

Looks excellent!

My LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group and I would like a dragon kite for ambience. I remember my brother making a non-dragon kite out of something that resembles tin foil, but was much lighter. Do you know what that might be?

WOW

It looks impossible to make! I've spent hours trying to make a kite and ended with a small white kite that barely even soars five feet. I wish I could make a kite like that.

(T.P. - try one of my Simple Series kites. The Diamond, Delta or Sled. They all take less than an hour to make, and fly pretty well. See 'Simple Kites' near the top left of this page...)

Bristol International Kite Festival 2011
by: Phil

Thanks for all your nice comments about my Dragon. I took it to the Bristol International Kite Festival on 4th Sept this year 2011 and flew it with the other public who had kites. They loved it and were filming and taking pics of it.

Dragon kite as twin line
by: Wayne

Your kite looks great. Imagine that as a twin line stunt kite. Would look pretty cool diving left and right.
