Nothing but blue skies.

I've had so much fun with your kite instructions, and the Rok caught my eye because I've tried several versions. I like your bridle ratio, easy and foolproof.

And a Rok is very forgiving, so the slanted sides can be approximate, top not equal to bottom so long as left is equal to right. So as is usual with me, I modify as I go, to see what effect it might have!

I made these from plastic and a Tyvec knockoff called Lowe's housewrap. The wind has been perfect to fly them this first week in July, when the weather is usually godawful hot and nearly calm.

Thanks for all your newsletters.
