Fun Date With Delta Kite

by Lincoln
(PA, USA)

A few months ago my girlfriend and I decided it would be a fun idea to try to build and fly a kite. One afternoon I perused the Internet sites on kite designs and settled on this - it seemed simple enough and it was NOT a windy day.

She was skeptical, but willing to try it out. So we bought the dowels, a 600 ft. string, and 2mm painter's plastic, and built it in a jiffy. As we went outside friends asked "do you really think it's windy enough to fly a kite?"

We got it up to 550 feet in the air! My girlfriend and I were both amazed and very excited that the little kite was doing so well... until it started losing altitude and the string eventually got stuck in a tree :( But it was such a good experience that we've decided to build another today.

Happy kite building,
Lincoln & Emma
