I have scored a few kites here in China, including a series of Delta Kites. I'm all about flying with toys on the lines, lights (at night), balloons, pinwheels, line climbers, and streamers. Problem is none of the single kites have the strength to lift the light toys (a chain of lightweight plastic lightsaber toys) that I'm trying to get airborn on their own. The solution is to train some kites together. So, how do I do it?
The kites are built, so I can't radically redesign them. Attaching the upper kite to the lower kite shouldn't be done at the lower kite's spars, as it will likely deform or break them. I don't want to have a lower kite attached to a separate line that is tied to the upper kite's line and possibly tangling them. I just want to chain them together...
Like I've tried to indicate below.

I acquired a kite a few years ago, and have been trying to figure out how to put it together since I got it. So far I've had no luck. The kite is a Joel K Scholz Signature Series Delta; the 20' Raptor to be precise. It came with a bag of carbon rods, but they all seem to be different sizes. Do any of you happen to have plans, or a diagram that shows how to assemble one of these things? I'd love to put it together and see it up in the air. It looks beautiful. Thanks for any help! I appreciate your time.
