Triangulation kite


A very unusual design from Joel Scholz, this kite is made by HQ Kites.  It resembles an old-fashioned tri-plane aircraft in having three wings, but is very simple to assemble and fly.  It pulls quite hard, so is not suited to smaller children even though the kite is not large at 87” wingspan by 22”.  A good novelty kite, which flies reliably in winds from a quoted 8 to 31 mph.  I have not flown it at the upper end, but certainly up to 20-24 mph it goes well.  Recommended price seems to be $46.95 (2011), but I bought mine more cheaply at Picture Pretty Kites, who usually have it in stock.
