Monster Butterfly Kite

(Chzech Republic)

First flight out in the field.

First flight out in the field.

The "Butterfly" kite pictured was produced in 2008. We managed to break it 3 times during testing! Here are some basic specs...

Height = 252 cm
Width = 246 cm
Weight = 4.5 kg

Length of the tail = 1100 cm
Weight of the tail = 1.1 kg
Length of flying line = 120 m

Skeleton is made of wooden sticks 25x25mm (the middle one) and 20x20mm (on sides) connected by a metal cross. The sail material is linen.

To get the kite up in wind is easy but landing this thing is a little more difficult!

Another original by RW Kent. STOL, Land or Sea. Note the half submerged fuselage for stability and holding on to the larger fish. Making it possible to "Bring home the Bacon"! Only from Fl would a RC fishing kite come from. Plus made only in the Greatest Country on the Planet. The "United States Of America".
