I'm 73 and have been making and flying single line kites most of my life. When I saw a quad kite demo at the 2018 Berkeley kite festival, it impressed me so I want to learn this style of kite flying.
Hi Flyer Kites were 10 cents when I was a kid. When school was out for the day, walking home, if I noticed that great March wind, I would stop at the little hardware store and get a Hi Flyer out of the nail keg. I liked the one with a moon on it. Also needed were 2 balls of kite string. After getting home and saying hi to my mom, I would quickly eat something and then get the kite ready and get my tail ready with extra if it was windy. Then, off to the flood wall to meet my friends. We sent notes of paper up to our kites on the string and also used large nails attached to the top of our kites to try and rip your opponents out of the sky. I also invented a paper airplane launcher on top of mine. We had so much fun. Looking forward to learning and sharing on the forum.
Now to get that quad kite on the line...................lines : )
