Roller Kite In Flight
No real story to tell... Grand-kids and I had a lot of fun building this Roller. The next one they're on their own while I do the watching.
They picked the colors, of the sail. I would have liked the top half white and the bottom half red with the keel being purple. See picture.
Did it fly? Why of course we have not had any of the kites that I built from this site not fly.
Not sure if it is a good thing or not but the Roller really wants to take line even on the test flight. The kite will go straight over head, so I am not sure if I have the angle of attack set right yet. We will see.
Thanks to Tim for such good plans. And the amount of work that he must do to keep it all updated.
As mentioned earlier, there's more kite-making on this site than you can poke a stick at :-)
