Finally I had the time to make the maiden flight with the tattoo butterfly kite.
A 5 Panel rokkaku kite.

We used 70kg bridleline. Two times 2 skyshark rods for the spreader and a  8mm carbon fiber for the spine. We cut the carbon rod for the spine in two pieces of 82,5(that is the same lenght as a standard skyshark rod) and 1 piece of 15cm.  That is adding weight but now it's easier to carry on my next trip.
Total weight is 600 gr.
