This is the nicwell kite and upgrade from the bamboo glider. It is bigger and better and very affordable Under 50$. The kite can be used to "float" as its called, a kind of gliding but very slow because your going against the wind. The longest I was in the air was about 2 or 3seconds. You can use it for kite bugging or anything kiting in general. If you need any additional help comment.

Step 1: Building Process.
It is very similar to the last kite, but on a larger scale.
Materials: bamboo (or aluminum), ductape, zipties, tarp, woodglue, metal wire.
The wingspan is 17ft and it is 7ft wide.
Step 2: Flying
Get at least a good 15mph wind on a hill and run into the wind. The glider will float there for a second then bring you safly to the ground (remember it's about 3ft off the ground).
