Terrific!

My son and I made this kite as part of a school project and were amazed with the results. It flew perfectly from the start - I was truly impressed!

Thanks for a terrific site!

Sorry about the delay in commenting, by the way. My oversight.

Yes, this is a very fool-proof design. Probably the best feature from a beginner's point of view is the lack of a proper bridle. Not because a bridle is hard to make, but because even a small error in the bridle line lengths can result in disappointing results in the air. With just one line going to where the sticks cross, you can't go wrong :-)
