Good to see them in the air again - even if the parts I contributed are hidden.

EDIT: I have to ask about the order: I am so "science-bound" that seeing a spectrum (or even most of one) out of the normal order (ROYGBP) looks strange to me. Any special reason for reversing the order of the 4th and 5th kites?

Wonderful! Makes me want to get my Trlbys out and fly them again. It's been way too long.

Kites rise highest against the wind, not with it.

TRLBY kites are still for sale, new old stock, at a kite store in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.  I saw one on display last Saturday.  They also have spare parts including plastic tube tails.  No more ripstop nylon sails left, I got the last ones.  But you can still get the poly sail kites.  Many years ago the first stunt kites I ever saw were a TRLBY stack flown by Mr. Kligman when the store was located downtown at the Pavilion.  Sadly the Pavilion area is empty now but the vision of those kites flying at night is a treasured memory of mine.  It inspired me to buy my first sport kite.
