More Chinese Centipedes – Juan Miguel Betancor

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.

Chinese Centipede kite – Video

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…

Fled Project Week 3…

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).
