First ever go at making a kite!

:) 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!
