First ever go at making a kite!

by Miss Cat

:) This is my first go at making a kite, and I'm stoked!

I've been flying now for a couple of years, bought kites, single and dual. But for some reason I had the idea that I couldn't make something that would fly? So I was very hesitant. Turned out I had a great afternoon and I can't wait to have a go at making the other MBK kites!

Thanks for the great site and instructions! I didn't have enough plastic to follow the instructions to the letter, so I halved everything... Another reason I was hesitant. But She flew excellently!

I had fairly light winds, which turned out to be perfect. Could not believe how steady she flew! I put her straight up without a hassle. And she flew high and steady until we had to pack down at sunset. On a fun side note... The only plastic I could find at home was pink rose scented bin liner.... None of my other kites have smelt so nice! :)

Wishing you good winds!
Cat

Glad your first MBK kite turned out so ... purr-fect, despite scaling it all down! Thanks for your super-enthusiastic contribution.

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)


Get A FREE E-book!

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!

Could you do me just a small favor though? If you're over 16, please sign up for Tethered Flying - my free twice-per-month publication. Here's just a sampling of the total content...

* 3 "tips of the month" (for beginners, parents & experienced)
* A fresh "photo of the month" (+ link to big hi-res version)
