First of i have to admit, that when i started working on this project, i was mainly driven by my ego. I would appreciate it, if any of my ideas become valuable for somebody.So, why would anyone build a kite from an umbrella?
The fabric used in common umbrellas is very light and durable Nylon. For this build i used an old and broken pocket umbrella, i had lying around. Also on rainy days people often leave their umbrellas in public places, so you can grab one for free! xD
This project set a lot of challenges concerning kite-design and minor problems, which were either solved or developed throughout the build.
