Two weeks ago my brother-in-law and I found a new kind of kite called the Conyne and built it from scratch with dowel rods, thread, white glue, electrical tape and tissue paper.
We build it from about 8:00pm – 12:00 am and test flew it up and down main street from about 12:00 am – 1:00 am. But we couldn’t get enough wind while he was here to really put it up.
So yesterday finally there was enough wind to put it up and boy did it fly. It pulled so hard the cord cut into my hands pretty good. Its amazing how much stress tissue paper can withstand.
