You know, some people… well, quite a few people actually, call me a kite nerd. My wife included. And I see where they’re coming from. I’m “always” thinking about kites!
A couple of days ago I was up in the stable, doing some work there, mocking for the horses and other things and my mind just started to … wander. Suddenly an idea dumped into my head!
You know, the Rokkaku, that traditional Japanese kite, typically those kites have four or six points for attaching the bridle to the frame. The Rokkakus I have built, have these four attachment points. So I was thinking….
Is it possible to fly a Rokkaku using a quad lined setup?
You know, with four lines and a pair of handles?
Well, in theory, it should be possible, but you know, theory and real-life they don’t always go so well together, but I decided to give it a go and see if it really is possible! Flying a Rokkaku using a quad line setup!
In the video below I’ll take you along on the experiment! Have fun!
