Single line kites

On this page I will show you some of the kites I made. I have tried to give you the source of the blueprint and where to find it wherever possible. The content of this page will change from time to time.



Sanjo rokkaku

This Japanese fightkite has a standard height of 330 cm. This model is made out of Tyvek and ramin. I have painted the kite with acrylpaint



Wolf Genki

This kite (© Carl Crowell 1994) has a span of 3 meter and a just little bit of wind is enough to hold him steady in the air. The materials used for this kite are: spinakernylon and carbonfiber.

In the middle of the yellow areas underneath the spar I have made points to attach Led-lights.
