Base on this size, the kite could consider a FlowForm 10. I had used mainly 3M transparent packing tape and 3M scotch cloth or duct tape for bonding of the kite. All the joints are mainly using the transparent packing tape with double sided tissue tape when needed.

To honor one of the kiting world’s most famous and certainly most illustrious personalities, the Drachen Foundation will be using this “Featured Archive” column to highlight some of the Cody items it houses in its archive. This month focuses on a model of a Cody war kite, purchased by Executive Director Ali Fujino at the Sotheby’s auction of the S.F.C. Cody Archive. It was purchased grouped together with samples of fabrics used in kite construction, a sales brochure for the Cody War Kite and two copies of an advertising leaflet for Pearson’s Magazine entitled The Kite That Lifts a Man.

KITEMAN PROFILE. Cobra Kites. Aquiloni. Pare che il primo aquilone sia nato in Cina nel 200 a.C., quando il generale Han Hsin ne fece volare uno per calcolare la distanza tra il suo esercito e il nemico.
Un'altra leggenda narra che un samurai, Minamoto Tametomo, fu esiliato insieme a suo figlio sull'isola di Hachijo, nel sud-est del Giappone: per far sì che almeno suo figlio potesse scappare, Tametomo costruì un aquilone gigante, che trasportò il ragazzo fino alla terraferma. Gli aquiloni furono utilizzati per tirare carri, per sollevare merci, per esperienze scientifiche, per rilevazioni meteorologiche o per le riprese fotografiche aeree; gli studi sugli aquiloni di fine ottocento hanno permesso la costruzione del primo aeroplano; oggi l'aquilone ha assunto un ruolo anche nello sport trainando surf, tricicli o slitte.
