    • How do I add a kite to these archives?

      Our goal is to develop and assemble a comprehensive list of all kites ever produced, either in the mainstream (Rev, Quantum Pro, Beetle, etc) or specialty (AeroStar, California WASP, Sea Devil)... From Rainbows, Skynasaurs and Peter Powells to Psychos, Geminis and Vipers, let's see 'em all! There is a single line section too of course, and we'd love to see it grow too, even though it isn't our strongest area of knowledge. Want to add a kite to the archives? It's easy! . Add a new topic with the kite name as Topic Title and the manufacturer name as Topic Description... Looks like:
      Topic Title: Nirvana
      Topic Description: by R-Sky
      At least one photo of the kite is required (attached to the post) for visual identification purposes.
      . Bonus content, which is always extra appreciated...
      .Designer's name Link to MFR web site Link to YouTube video of kite in flight Info about models (i.e. super ultralight, ultralight, standard, vented)
      . Thanks folks, I'm looking forward to watching this archive grow!
    • What are the Kite Archives?

      Welcome to the our kite archives, a growing listing of all kites produced on a commercial or specialty level, with as much info as we can find including (when available) MFR link(s), YouTube videos, photos and essential product info. Members are encouraged to add their own reviews, modifications, tips, photos, videos, stories and history for any of the kites. All submissions will be held for admin approval. Click the "Advanced" link next to our search box on this page to search for kite(s) by name or manufacturer, be sure to select the kite archives category under "Find in forum".
    • How do I rate kites in the archive?

      Just above the first (opening) post in any topic, on the right side of the page, you'll see a row of stars where you can rate any kite listed in the archives 1 through 5... Please do so only if you've actually had experience on a kite, as all ratings should represent a balance of value, performance and overall flight experience.

Original Hyperkites?

3 posts in this topic

I dont think they have made these for a long time (I bought these in the mid 80's ). Does anyone know where I can purchase more? I have a stack of 6 and would like to add a few.

Thanks for any information in advance

I don't know where you can buy the original hyperkites (with wood spars). I believe that Kites Unlimited in Atlantic Beach, NC is about the only place that sells them. They have a huge availability of colors. Don & Jeri Dixon are great folks (if you contact them, tell them I said hi). Their Web site is Kites Unlimited and their phone number is 252-247-7011.

Kites unlimited is the ONLY place to get them.

Hyperkites (The company) closed its doors in 1998 after the dominance of the "Big Wing" took over the stunt kite community.

Chances are you have Hyperkite "Star-Cruisers" (28" wing span)

If you do purchase more, consider re-framing the whole stack with the latest frame stock and replace the trainlines (Lines between the kites) with kevlar or spetra.

The performance will be quite noticable.

If you need more help or info, send me an Email.


Here's a pic of my baby...
