The Kitty Hawk Kite
This is the kite that replicates the unique canard biplane design of the original Wright Flyer from 1903. Designed by world-renowned kite artist Joel Scholz, its fiberglass frame, struts, and cross-pieces support the twin wings, foreplanes, and fuselageâ€”all made from ripstop polysterâ€”faithfully depicting the famous airplaneâ€™s airframe. The 1/12-scale wings produce a 46″ wingspan that generates lift in ideal winds of 8 – 18 mph. The included spool of 37-lb.-test polyester string allows flights up to 200′ high.
