I finished making your fresh wind Dowel Box kite. I used 1/4" dowels for a little extra strength.

The kite was flying in 16-20 mph winds. Gusts were about 25 mph. The kite flew perfectly, but it sure did pull! I thought the string might break when the wind would gust!

Like your flight report, it flew at about a 75 degree angle, and was very exciting to fly. I could only take the kite to 100' or so, because I was in a small city park in Philadelphia. Looking forward to taking it to the beach!
