I had a store bought Kite I was going to Mod.
I could never get it to fly.
So I made this Sled Kite.
Just need some wind now.

Step 1: The Bits

I looked around for a good kite material, and settled on these cheep
plastic sheet, party table covers.
They are 4 ft x 4 ft.
The garden canes are 2ft.
The anchor points are duct tape.

Step 2: The Build

The Sheet is 4ft wide so measure in 1 ft from each side.
Attach the canes with a tab of duct tape, top and bottom.

Step 3: Join and Cut

I joined 2 canes together with heavy copper wire to give me the length i needed.
I folded the edges together and trimmed the sides, adding bridle anchor points.

Step 4: The Bridle

I used fine but strong nylon twine across the anchor points.
The Panda face was drawn on with a marker pen.
Now all I need is some wind for out door shots.
The next kite up will be a delta wing.
<p>It looks like the upper side edges of the rectangle shapet kite hafe got the same length like the lower ones.</p><p>But at this kite-typ, called sled kite, the upper edges must be shorter than the lower ones.</p><p>Cut the upper part of the kite in shape like this (you also must cut the sticks at the new corners and tape them in place again):</p><p> <a href="https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/FUY/WEDJ/HRCK0UHC/FUYWEDJHRCK0UHC.png" rel="nofollow"> https://www.instructables.com/files/orig/FUY/WEDJ/.</a></p>
Great job. Flies great, right?
