I am building a kite as a project for school, and I am wondering what would be a good tail length for a kite with a length of 28 inches and a height of 24 and a half inches. Any advice would be appreciated. 😀
On Monday night, around 6pm, my area had a microburst. Our driveway isn't exactly graded properly, so a ton of water came into the garage. The garage is attached to a workroom and my office in the finished basement. Let's just say I need new carpet, and new paneling.
However, in cleaning the workroom, my lovely wife made a discovery. Back in like 1991 or 1992, she bought me a dual line kite (back when all I knew was the term stunt kite). I flew it for a few years, then kind of dropped out of the kite scene because of whatever reasons.
I bet you can see where this is going. It's a Griffin III, I think. 8 foot wingspan. I put it together to see it's condition. The sail looks to be in good shape. The struts seemed to be solid, though I didn't actually test it. I think the bridle lines are not in good shape, there was a powdery residue on them. No water got near the bag, so there's no damage from that. I'm excited to get it in the air again.
