IMG_1948 Sode Dako ( Kimono kite)

Maiden flight of my Sode Dako a.k.a. Kimono kite.

Size: 60 x 120cm.

 

After manyf adjustments of the bridle and line tension of the horizontal spars, it would just stay in the air for a couple of minutes. It wasn't flying very stable and occasionally diving to earth.

Perhaps the wind speed of 30km/h (5Bft) was too strong, even with a 3mtr fuzzy tail.
