Latest Icarex buy included a lot of random color scraps Much smaller pieces this time. I Started laying out another new kite today.. This one is truly eclectic..  Colors without rhyme or reason and all over the place spectrum wise.. Introducing Crazy Quilt

1st panel basted and backlit.. Still a touch Stripey on the outside edge but I think it will look nice in the air.. Color mix was 100% determined by the size of the scrap and not by spectrum order or placement.

So the owner of the Hive decided the Hive needed a smaller Sibling. Based on the Rev II or B2 frame, the Brood is born.

For a moment I thought your lines were attached to the giant panda.

You should figure out how to do that next. It would make a strange but exciting quad.

First Flight of the Dark Sunset Fade Kite.. All in all very pleased with low wind performance.. Winds were hovering between 2-3 MPH with occasional gusts of 5MPH.
