Over the last month my wife and I constructed a new kite.
It’s called a double star and we got some very well prepared plans from this website
The material is ripstop nylon and the poles are made of carbon fibre. The kite is 2M across.
We finally got to fly the kite on the Easter weekend. Naturally the wind speed dropped (as is the way of the world) as soon as we brought the kite out and it hasn’t been windy enough to fly it again for the last three weeks.
