Small Nylon Delta Kite
(Birmingham, AL USA)
Got it to fly, now a little girl can enjoy it. Here's what happened...
I had bought a small nylon delta kite several years ago and could not get it to fly correctly. It would lean and then nose dive regardless of what I tried.
At the beach this weekend, 2/19/11, I realized that the cross spreader was too long and would not let the kite form an eddy. I shortened the cross spar and it flew perfectly.
A little girl about 6 years old was sitting next to us watching my kites fly. I handed her the line and said don't let go, it's your kite now. You would have thought she had won the lottery. She flew it for the next 4 hours and thanked me again before she left.
I took a picture of the kite while she was flying it. It made my day!
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 :-)
