Rokkaku kite

The smaller versions are actually for kite fighting. But if you build them big and change up the bridle they are quite stable.

I wasn't able to hook a camera to it on this day. Sadly it was just too windy for a kite this big. It gave me a workout just holding it. The next day of course there was zero wind.

I was just happy that it would fly, and that the day was so awesome, and that we got out of the house, and that the girls enjoyed the day.

What is kite fighting?

Have you seen the movie kite runner? Two kites compete by trying to cut the other's string (by crossing lines) while flying. The winner keeps the other's kite. At least that's how I think it goes.
