Synopsis

The age old pastime of kite flying has recently experienced a dramatic increase in popularity owing to the introduction of bold new designs and materials for improved standards of efficiency. In this completely revised and updated edition of one of the best books ever written on the hobby, Ron Moulton (founder of the British Kite Flying Association) and Pat Lloyd (an internationally respected draughtsman) provide all the latest information on making and flying modern kites. The authoritative text and detailed drawings and even more colour photographs combine to describe the new era of advanced models, the latest materials and the expert skills required. Specialities such as kit fighting with the Rokkaku design, aerial photography, Parabear drops and team aerobatics are supported by 30 fully-dimensioned kite plans that embrace the traditional, the simple and the sophisticated.
