Girl Scouts - Kite Flying

by Lori
(Auburn, MI, USA)

Many years ago my Girl Scout troop took a trip to Frankenmuth where a kite shop let us make kites very similar to this. It is a rectangle base 18"x24" with scalene triangles on each end, 6" height, and no tails. I still have this kite and it goes up easily each and every time. This kite started my love for kites. Before, they were just frustrating.

Reliable Sleds
by: Tim Parish

Yes - a well designed Sled can be pretty fool-proof, with nothing to adjust or put together. Yours must have been well-made to fly so reliably without tails and in various wind speeds.

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 :-)

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)
* A fresh "flight report of the month" (my personal flying)
* Updates on the latest board game from my-best-kite.com

Any questions? Here's more info on both the e-book and the newsletter.
