My First Simple Delta

by Pete
(England)

I made a Simple Delta from the plans on your website and took it to the river bank to see if it would fly. The wind was from the South moderate to fresh and gusty.

I made the kite of clear plastic and used gaffer tape to stick it together. The kite took off very well but the wind was too strong and the kite kept swinging sideways and hitting the ground.

I added some more tail and the kite flew for about half an hour before the 50lb. breaking strain line broke.

Vehicles passing on a nearby road slowed or stopped to watch. Since then I have made a Cody of rip stop nylon from a link in your website. Never thought to take pictures of it.
