Fled Mark III – First Flight




Fled MKIII -2

Originally uploaded by wdrwilson.

Managed to get out at lunch today to get a few pictures of my newly constructed Fled MK III. I am working with Steve Ferrel from the kitebuilder.com forums to put together an online Fled kite building workshop.

This kite is scaled up from the original slightly to more easily handle the 32.5 inch spars that I use. I chose white as I will be primarily using this as a kite for Kite Aerial Photography. It should make a nice, hopefully not so distracting, platform for taking photos.

Thanks to Brooks Leffler for putting the plans together…

This is a really cool series of photos showing what it takes to build a custom kite-surfing kite.

Here is an example from a fantastic natural refresher drink called Dwarf8, http://www.dwarf8.com/ from Switzerland but based in the kite mecca of Europe, Tarifa, where best to have a custom kite? They ordered an 11m Sport 2 in all white sail with the logo sewn on.
