Even using cheap garden-bag plastic results in fine-looking kites. See those inflight shots of them all, down below. But of course, you can use any colored plastic you like. See the tetra! Ripstop nylon cloth/tape or Tyvek cloth/tape can be substituted as well.
With this book, you're set to fly in all but the lightest winds.
This book should prove to be a handy kite-making reference for a long time to come. I hope it returns its value back to you, many times over.
In addition to basic construction and flying info for making box kites, this e-book also provides:
- Construction details for making the Dowel Series kites transportable,
so they can be rolled up into a slim package and taken anywhere. Even
the huge Multi-Dowel box kite packs down to just 1.2 m (4 ft.) long.
- Tips for rigging and de-rigging if you choose to make the kites transportable.
Cheap materials keep the costs way down. What's more, most of
the "tools" are probably lying around your house somewhere already!
Nothing fancy is required, believe me.
If the very cheap tools
are not at hand already, it's easy to find something like a pair of
scissors in a store. In fact, a supermarket would probably have everything except the hacksaw. Most items would be easy to borrow if required.
Even the knot tying is explained, step by step. You'll soon know them all, and they will definitely come in handy for future projects.
