Beautiful day today. Upper 60s, nice breeze. Go fly a kite, I says. I kinda flew a kite. The winds were variable and swirly, so I didn’t get more than 30 seconds out of a flight, but some is better than none.
This one is a 30″ parafoil. It has no structure, it is simply a set of bags that catch air, and when inflated form a lifting surface. It takes no effort to get it aloft (if you have wind, anyhow), and you can do some neat tricks with it.
