Wholesome kite flying fun at the beach
by Brendon and Julie

In an effort to get out and enjoy the summer sun my wife and I decided to build and fly a kite. Your Delta was the first design we looked at and it seemed simple so we put it together (scaled down to 600mm) and headed to the beach.
The Simple Delta worked a treat and we had lots of people comment. They were surprised to find out we had built it ourselves. We only made one minor adjustment which involved small tails on the corners to help it balance a little better, since at the start it was a little lopsided. We probably flew it for an hour before heading for a swim. I'm still a bit damp and salty.
Thanks heaps for a great addition to our day at the beach!
Unfortunately we didn't have a camera... We'll have to take the Simple Delta kite out again.
