Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

Karsten, what cord do you use in the trailing edge? Earlier I asked stevet25 what he used and his solution is a 30mm dacron strip. I'm using a 1.5mm Dyneema line Tried a few different ways to get a nice and stable trailing edge. Really like the one with the line, mainly because of the look and feel...

Re: Free kite plans on GitHub

PanTau, I'd go for 2 packages: - kite model/size specific kit (canopy, LE, bladders, valves) - all the rest, in a quantity sufficient for few kites.
