MBK 1-Skewer Sode
You might already have some of the simple tools and materials required. Anything you don't have is easily bought. If not exactly what I used, then at least something pretty similar!
These instructions on how to make a sode kite might look a bit long, but each step is quite simple to do. Just steadily work your way through from top to bottom, skimming over any detail that you don't need.
At 29 cm (11 1/2 in.) across, the MBK 1-Skewer Sode kite is rather small.
This sode has dihedral on the horizontal spars, a simple two-leg bridle and a looped tail. In anything more than moderate winds, you might need more tail than is described here.
Note the extra length of tail added to the bottom of the loop, in the photo!
The vertical spar is 1.5 SL (43.5 cm, 17 1/4 in.) long, so two 30 cm (12 in.) bamboo BBQ skewers need to be glued together:
The video below shows that longer tail in action! The breeze was quite fresh way up there. Just look at that cloud cover moving past:
