Panels were sewn today. LE was formed and ready to fold. Bridle and bag are also completed.

LE will be White with Red stitching. Trying to decide between Red or Orange for edge binding now..

Only Edge Binding and Framing remain.. Little oops, I forgot to adjust my initial panel sizes for the symmetrical sail (due to the venting). When I got everything lined up I ended up having to do a bottom trim wedge to give me the proper size. Given the silver along the outer edge, I think it actually accented the overall look.

Kite is finished. Decided Red for the Edge Binding and Yellow for the wear strips. Will try a bridle test and a few pics tomorrow during daylight if possible. First flight will be Waynesboro (weather and wind permitting)

I guess tomorrow will be the bridle test AND first flight but was able to get a few pics of the completed kite.
