Double Star – First Flight!

Well today the wind was about 30 Km/H gusting to 40 km/h and I foolishly decided to try and fly my double star… woooo hoooo what a ride.

The first challenge was putting the kite together on a soggy field with howling wind and -10c temps. That didn’t stop us though. I hadn’t bridled the kite yet so I did that in the field as well, very cold fingers after that :).

It was a little too cold to adjust all of the tips so I decided to give it a go anyway.. and it Flew… It launched with the roar of a jet plane and was stapled to the sky. When the wind would shift it would sweep a little but nothing a little slack in the line didn’t fix. Very happy!!!!

What a great feeling… :D

The wind was really blowing hard and I had visions of the 10 mm Carbon rods snapping like twigs…Lot’s of pull on this kite. So I handed the kite off to my friend, and walked the kite down.

Here are is a photo taken by my friend Ian. The sky is grey today but I brightened the photo up the best I could..

Double Star – It’s Finished!!

Finally the Double Star is complete. :) I finished off the last of the bottom section late this evening. This kite is really impressive when it’s fully assembled, a full 10 foot diameter!. I haven’t adjusted the tip tension much but it seems that the MKS fittings from Kitebuilder.com will work out fine.

Here are the first pictures of the kite completely assembled. I have to add the bridle and it will be ready to fly! :) :)

The Double Star is going well, assembling the “A” panels to form the tunnel for the center spar was a bit of a challenge. When I build the second half of the kite
