I learned a lot on this forum about building kites so I thought I would document my second build on a new thread. Day 1 was to layout and cut the panels. I am using rip stop nylon as the primary fabric. As you may be able to see it will be a vented quad. Here is a picture of one of the panels with the vents cut out. Tomorrow the vents will get white screening. PXL_20210217_232710607.jpg

Day 2. Added white screening to sail. This stuff is heavy so I'm interested to see how it flies. I also put together the center section. The material is something called holopoly.

Day 5, added rods and bridle. Ready for a test flight. The horizontal bridle is a bit tight pre bending the frame. That will be adjusted on test flight. PXL_20210226_170409158.jpg
