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!
