Hey guys! My name is Jason and I'm currently in my 3rd year of Mechanical Engineering. I have an on-going project at the moment. The design brief is this:"There are many applications for airbourne devices including kite aerial photography or kite fishing. A major challenge is providing the necessary initial lift for systems which may have additional weight to reach height with constant winds (>50m). The objective of this project is to design a low cost, low weight, low power system which can provide the necessary initial lift in the absence of wind on the ground." My questions to
Hi all, I have recently become interested in kite flying but haven't purchased a kite yet. I think I would like to start with a single line. I'd like to have something that is a little unique, unfortunately we only have an average windspeed of about 5 to 10 mph. I noticed this is the low end flight range for many kites. Will this make it difficult to fly them? Is there a kite or two that would do better in these conditions? Since it is my first kite, I don't really want to spend a ton until I know this is something I want to really get into. Any suggestions? Thanks!
