very helpful for my subject project :) thank you for sharing this
I hope you get it in the air!<br/><br/>You'll need a multi-legged bridle, probably something like that of a <em>rokkaku</em>, and you'll need some help to launch it, and a good strong anchor-point.<br/>
thank you.<br/>I have make this kites in the past ( like 20 years ago) back in Guatemala and we were able to fly it,<br/>on Nov 1th ( the day of dead ) we make Huge kites, <br/>see video <div style="margin-left:15px;"> <object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/8xjSiyVWuVE"></param><param name="wmode" value="transparent"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/8xjSiyVWuVE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="425" height="344" wmode="transparent"></embed></object></div><br/>
That is <em>awesome</em>. Are they made the same as this Instructable?<br/>
yes...... the only diff is that we use bamboo , so just change pvc to bamboo.
those are some BEASTLY kites
Or tie it to your back and jump off a cliff. (If you do this and get hurt it is your own fault no matter how much fun it is)
That is a very beautiful kite, I'm definitely going to take your suggestion and build one myself, and I'll email you for sure. I'm totally inspired.
Ok I&nbsp;must be missing it but where does the string attach to fly the kite?????<br />
the string goes on front of the kite<br /> one comes from the center and the other 2 from sides<br /> you need to try what sides works best.&nbsp; <br /> aslong you got it flying .<br /> <br />
wow! that is insane mate! this is a definite thing i am going to do on the holidays!
That's really cool.
How does it fly? Just kidding. Cool kite.
