Kono Box Kite Kit (10 pack)
About this Kite Kit:
This kite is USA kite artist Greg Kono’s adaptation of Australian Lawrence Hargrave's box kite design. This kite is a very stable flyer. The kite uses latex tubing to join the spars. A good “next step” for young students age ten and older (may need adult help in joining spars) who have made one or more flat and bowed kites. Printed on 11” x 17” bond.
Age 10 and up.
The simplest method would be to use marker pens, but substituting the bond paper for more interesting light weight paper with color or patterns would work. Note: do not increase the weight of the paper, matching the weight of the bond paper supplied is critical in the flight of this kite.
Ideal wind conditions for this kite:
Medium (a flag on a pole is steadily moving...but if the flag is flying straight out, it's too much wind!)
Note: Sold only in 10 packs.
