A substantial (290+ pages, 370+ photos) PDF kite making e-book which describes in detail, step-by-step, the creation of 22 cheap-to-make kite designs. The basic building-block is the 12" bamboo BBQ skewer, with spars being constructed of 1, 2 or 3 such skewers end-to-end.
Besides the popular Diamond kite, Delta kite and Box kite, there are also Sled, Barn Door, Rokkaku, Roller and Dopero kite designs.
Different kite types suit different wind speeds. All have been thoroughly tested and flown several hundred feet in the air by the author.
Materials used are plastic sheet, bamboo skewers and tape. A real-life flying story regarding each kite is also included, plus illustrated knot-tying instructions.
From within Adobe PDF Reader (free software - Google it!) you can easily print off the entire e-book, or just a selected page range. Or just open up the PDF on a tablet and work from there.
