Making a banner, need advice and resources


Recommended Posts

While at WSIKF, i bought a 19' banner pole from one of the vendors. My thought was to make a banner I can put up at festivals so folks could see where I was set up so they could find me if they wanted one of the kite stakes I make. I would also love to join in the march of colors next year at WSIKF, as a way to advertise my hobby business. I would like to sew my own, but need to know what matierials to use, and where to get them. If anyone knows of a website with some sort of how to that would be revelant, that would be very helpful too. This would also give me some expierience sewing so I could start making a few kites of my own in the future. I figure a banner is not as hard to sew and get "right" as a kite would be. I did look at a few banners and how they were put together, so basic construction I have a fair idea of.

      Where can I find some good, consolidated resources on kitemaking? I'm decent with a sewing machine and I'm handy. I have made wooden RC sailplanes, repaired carbon fiber planes and parts for my dirt bikes, built/repaired/tuned RC helicopters, etc. so I'm pretty confident I can take some plans with a little insight and guidance and make a good kite.
      I've found several sites with plans listed, but not much about how to read the cut sheets/schematics, and haven't found info on tips for order of operations, stitches to use for different seams...stuff like that. So where can I find the good stuff?!
      Oh, and I'll note that as of now, I am primarily looking at building dual line sport kites since that's what I am familiar with. I intend to get a quad liner at some point, too, but want some experience flying them before I build one.

      Cheers,
      Bred.

      Didn't see a dedicated topic summarizing , all the popular links for online sport kite plans.
      Bear in mind, one should always assume it's for personal use only when using someone else's kite plans.
