The kite is almost 4,5m wide and 1 meter deep (see plan). The 2 spreaders in the length or only 6mm. The rest is supported by 18 bridles of 10 long.
Second test flight of my new kite. We replaced the 9 spreaders with 4mm carbon fibre. When the wind is picking up the bridle isworking well. Once the wind is dropping down, the kite is becoming flat and uncontrollable... I have to add a bowline.

They promised us beautiful weather; So we (Frank and I) went to The Wijers to shoot some aerial pictures. The Wijers is a unique area with more than 1000 ponds, representing about 700 ha of water and reeds. We got hazy foggy weather, giving that typical autumn tint to the pictures. For the Kap friends: We had 400 meters of line on the kite...
