I like the bridle-adjuster.

This must look amazing on a sunny day, or flown over a well-lit area at night.

(This is also a cool kite to make with a whole bunch of kids - each one makes a cell, and you fasten them all together. Even better, if you have more than 10 kids, you just make a bigger kite. Be aware, though, that tetras have more lift than you'd expect, so be safe.)
Great idea for the kids project. I'll get right on it and see how well they work together.

10 cells? I counted only 9.

Unless you count the whole set as one cell.

Anyway, nice kite!
there's one hidden that u cant see....
Oh, yes! Now I see it. Thank you, I lost another chance to remain silent.
Brilliant!
Cool, good
idea.
