The Tahara movie

I was looking for a new single line kite that was applique friendly to replace the Delaporta shape  (see link).      It was during a fun afternoon flying /fighting my custom made Tahara of Carl Longbottom that I was thinking... this should be a great surface to make a new applique!   But a fighter kite is not the best show kite.  It moves in all (controlled) directions....
Based on the plan of Leon Chee Wan and the long discussions we had on how to increase the speed and the reaction time of the Tahara fighter, I know what to do to avoid all this and get it stable..... ;-)
