Original MBK 2-Skewer Delta
The MBK 2-Skewer Delta Kite is a medium-sized delta 96 cm (38 in.) across and 58 cm (23 in.) tall, with a single fairly short tail.
The horizontal spars are bowed to give extra stability and shorten the amount of tail required. Hence it's a bit different to a store-bought delta with a single spreader.
The 2-Skewer Delta is a very nice light-to-moderate-wind flyer. Take it out when there seems to be hardly enough wind to keep any kite up.
Watch this kite go straight overhead when a thermal comes through. Avoid flying in strong wind however, since this design flaps rapidly in that situation!
Many months later, this design was superseded by a more conventional delta design. But people kept enjoying this page so I decided to leave it up.
For this delta, you need to glue skewers together to form the three spars plus spreader:
