Aztec Delta kite


A beautiful flier, this is a big delta with a wingspan of 14ft (4.67m). It’s at its best in fairly light winds, and has enough pull to lift a lot of tail or line laundry.  It matches well with the Dimension Delta (see above) which has now been discontinued, and I fear this may be going the same way, as the maker seems determined to weed out most of the best kites from its catalog.  The large keel on this kite adds to its stability, and it really is a pleasure to fly.  List price was $149.95 in 2013, and Picture Pretty Kites is showing stock at $139.95.
