This is a very basic and quick-to-make kite which spins and works more like an autogyro than a conventional kite. It has 3 blades which spin and create a disk which then redirects air downward like a kite and pushes it into the air.
I made a similar craft to this at the beginning of the year, Here is a link to it: http://www.instructables.com/id/Autogyro-Kite-Hafner-Rotabuggy/
This one differs from the earlier one because it has no body and is therefore lighter and appears more stable. It also behaves more like a normal kite than the Rotabuggy one. It is made from household materials so you should not need to buy anything to make this spinning kite. The first two pictures in this intro step are renders of a model I made in SketchUp. To download the SketchUp model of this kite, either download it from the bottom of step 1 or from this URL: http://sketchup.google.com/3dwarehouse/details?mid=640eb9dde35aadc5a5131d38588a62b&prevstart=0
I have no photographic or video footage of this kite in flight because the weather is not very good at the moment and I can't fly it until the weather improves. It does however fly and I have tested it but I just have not recorded it flying yet, so the renders will have to do for now.
