Thunderbird Kite - 11.5 ft. Patriotic
Case: Fabric case with color hang tags
Will order again. Will be flying Memorial Day weekend!
I was skeptical about this large flyer, put it together and was up in less than 10 minutes! Sunset at the athletic fields was a joy with kids and interested spectators.
We're glad to hear that! Large kites are notorious for drawing a crowd wherever they are launched.
I love it. It flies well. In higher winds, it's wings flap in the breeze. I'm happy I added this kite to my collection.
The kite went together smoothly and the kite went straight up into the air. The only issue that I observed was the kite flaps in the air like a bird. I don’t know if this is normal.?? The kite had substantial pull. I also purchased a longer tail for the kite. I received many compliments
Hi and thanks for the review and photo/video! Glad you are enjoying your new kite.
To answer you concern about the kite 'flapping' yes, it is meant to do this! Large kites like this, especially in this delta triangle type shape, the design is made so the kite flexes and bends a bit with the wind to give it some give. That is perfectly normal! :) This generally happens when the string is tugged on, or big gusts come through but it should not effect the flight!
