About: Hmmm...I was just trying out the name to check the availability :( ahh well...they're cool guys! I'm a teacher/tinkerer/outdoor kinda guy. Bamboo is the most incredible renewable construction mate...

Built with the same methods as my 'WingKite' (see below)

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Frame

Cut and lay out bamboo frame

Step 2: Frame Assembly

Lash frame together with duct tape

Step 3: Attach 'Skin'

Lay on black plastic, cut off excess and duct tape edges to the frame

Step 4: Paint

No self-respecting 'Batman' would be worth his mask with a non-black kite! Krylon Black covers green bamboo and red duct tape perfectly!

Step 5: The Finished BatWing Kite

The kite weighs 13 lbs and has a 12 foot wingspan. Pray for wind! I want to 'fly'!!!

    Question 2 months ago on Introduction

    Do you have a list of complete supplies needed with measurements? Am I missing it? Cause I don't see it.
