Le Virus – Number 2 finished!

Finsished “Le Virus” number 2 this evening… Test flight tomorrow 🙂 🙂

I learn something every time I build a kite. This time I used a Mil spec grade gross grain on the trailing edge. The gross grain is 100% nylon and is very strong. It holds a crease long enough to feed it through my bias binder and creates a nice finish. I will make the dacron reinforcements at the standoff positions thicker, as I didn’t leave quite enough room for the standoff-to-sail connector. The kite has the frame from my green “Le Virus” and I will eventually frame it in skyshark P200’s and 5pt tapers.

Here is a photo of the completed kite…
