Ultralight fighter

Recommended Posts

I love my Wala and indoor gliders; can someone recommend an ultralight fighter kite? Either one to buy or where to find very detailed plans? Thanks.

I recently purchased this De Tomaso Superleggera from Thomas Horvath. It's not considered a fighter kite, however it can have some of those qualities.

Are you looking for a "true" fighter or an outdoor glider/fighter mix? Horvath's Urban Ninja serves that purpose well. I believe there are  plans out there for it, he published them as open plans. It's a single line kite that can't be set up and forgotten - you must fly it all the time! I like to use it when there's just a hint of wind, but not enough to fly my quads. Satisfies the quad flier in me, I get to be active with the kite.

I am hoping to find something that will be fun to learn some "tricks", if that's even possible.  I've built only one kite. I think it is a Borelli glider, but I built it as a club meeting where all the supplies were already set up.  Where can I get supplies to build the Ninja?

I would ask some one like riffclown about that, he has made many a  kite. Did you find plans OK? Mine was made for me by a friend - Mario from the quad team Island Quad. He has also made many kites, but not sure if he is on here.

      Monark I/O indoor/outdoor.

      No 2 skins are the same colors because of the paint pattern, value is $90.
      Proven indoor competitor. Won 1st place for hand crafted kite at the 2016 AKA NATIONAL CONVENTION. Test flown at the RUN FROM THE RAIN indoor comp in Ocean Shores WA.
      This actual kite being flown:
      Comes with all shown in photo - kite, line, line winder and bag.
      Reply here with “I’m in” to enter, that’s it, but be sure to read the rules too.
      Winner will be drawn on NOV 24, 2017, entrants will be assigned numbers below (order of entry).
      In so far:
      @dragonfish @Ca Ike ==
      Some rules and guidelines:
      Don’t play unless you’re willing to put up a prize and ship it to whoever wins.
      Shipping is paid by the original poster, the winner pays nothing. Be prepared to ship your prize anywhere in the lower 48 US States. Sorry, but due to shipping costs, we really have to limit this to the lower 48 US States.
      RULE CHANGE (7/31/2014): Members from Canada, Alaska, and Hawaii are welcome to enter the Karma drawings provided they are willing to pay half of the Karma prize shipping cost. The method and timing of the payment will be agreed upon between the two parties after the drawing for a particular prize.
      You can choose the length of the giveaway, but keep it between 1 and 2 weeks.
      Try to ship the prize promptly. You should be able to ship it within a week, but if you can’t, PM the winner and let them know. Sometimes life gets in the way! This whole thing works on the honor system so if there are any problems shipping or receiving a prize, it needs to be worked out between the two parties. Don’t forget…Karma!
      This isn’t a competition, but feel free to be generous! If you can only put up a hat, or a tail for a stunt kite, great! If you have something in your kite bag that you never fly and would be willing to ship, that’s great too. Either way, the people that join to win it will appreciate it.
      When you receive your prize, post a thank you to the thread where you won it. 
      The thread will be locked after that point so the new **KARMA** stays above it.
      Good luck, and have fun!
