Check out a video from the Cape Breton post.. lot’s of good stuff, a good selection of the flyers are featured.
Came across this cool video today. It’s great to see local flyers profiled.
BitterJewler signed up for the Fled workshop and built a great looking kite. The Bee drogue is great! ( and it doesn’t spin like I predicted it would LOL)…
I have posted some of Juan’s videos before, (the double start just a few posts ago). This time Juan has built a great Chinese centipede kite with a traditional Dragons head. Juan crafted all the pieces him self and the video walks through a series of photos of the build as well as some great video of the kite flying.

Harold Ames over at the kitebuilder.com forums posted a link to this video, I thought it was worth sharing. Really interesting to see how he balances each panel. The finished kite with the spinning eyes and a the color transition of the discs is great…
I just finished posting the final instructions for the Kitebuilder.com forums Fled workshop…
While I was writing the instructions for the workshop I was playing around with Google Sketch Up. Mainly to see if I could create a simple rendering of the fled for use as a colorizer. I ended up going a bit overboard as usual, and while I am no Sketch Up expert I thought this was pretty cool. (I am just impressed that I could build the drogue LOL).
Cool little video documenting the process of building a smaller version of the double star…
Came across this great segment on Bermudian kites, very informative. I really should try some taditional kites like these some day.
