the little one can act also as a bag for the large one when not in use. 

Also with the little one, if you feed some light whippa snippa line into the seem of the black orifice, it will keep the mouth open in lighter winds, and hold its shape a bit nicer in high winds.

OR.. they seem to make great tails for paraforms..

 

Good Job !! I must talk to you about where you buy your cloth :)

@the_hatman seem to have put the idea in my head to make something for him.

also @Mez, bought me this..

Some red drogues for the hatman? Thanks for the tip will feed some snippa line in tomorrow. Going to order some more material soon @igeighty if your interested. Still keen to make one of your stingrays but must be big.  And Mez is a good egg.👍

It would have to be a wheely big kite to lift those wheels :)

cheers Darren, I am looking to building up a stash of cloth, some bridle line.

Also 2 planks of Structaflor. and a couple of folding saw horses. These will act as a temporary table.

and stick to inflatable kites at first, as they don't need all the extra expensive rods and fittings.

 

however... lately bamboo and crepe paper kites are looking more and more appealing. No Sewing !
