My Best Kite

by Tony
(Adelaide, SA, Australia)

I am spoilt for choice, however the mini-Photon is the pick of the bunch for me.

It is a superbly made kite of micro-size carbon fibre, spectra laminate and small stainless steel fittings equaling 4.6 grams in weight.

Made by Tim Elverson and painted by Ruth Suiting, both of Windfire Designs, in Florida USA. They are real artisans of the underworld.

The picture is of this kite in its resting or display place, but have no fear it flies wonderfully on a scant puff of air.

As mentioned earlier, there's another alternative to towing indoor kites if it's just not possible to fly outdoors...

"Kites Up!" is my downloadable board game. It's a PDF file which has all the documentation for the game plus images for all the components. Tokens, cards, the board itself and so on. Anyway, just click that link to see more info :-)


Get A FREE E-book!

It's a printable PDF file. Make a diamonddelta or sled step-by-step. They fly hundreds of feet up for hours on end. Woohoo!

Could you do me just a small favor though? If you're over 16, please sign up for Tethered Flying - my free twice-per-month publication. Here's just a sampling of the total content...

* 3 "tips of the month" (for beginners, parents & experienced)
* A fresh "photo of the month" (+ link to big hi-res version)
* A fresh "flight report of the month" (my personal flying)
* Updates on the latest board game from my-best-kite.com

Any questions? Here's more info on both the e-book and the newsletter.
