5 year old grandson flying a 2 string job...
He and I went out the day before he returned to school after Xmas holidays. It was very windy and blustery.
The stunt kite is a sort of twin dowel carbon fiber model only about 2 feet x 18 inches high. With me on the controls it went up like a rocket on the best launch and did figure of eights etc. My grandson only managed a short flight because he hasn't the knack yet of balancing the flight but it still got up to around 30 feet so gave him a taste of the sport.
He said to me he wished he could fly like that! He was asking me about the meaning of "infinity" the other day.
Best wishes for the new year
