    Martin's Hypar 1 Kite

    "Like the Cheshire Cat’s grin, Martin’s Hypar seems to float freely in the air – the sky smiling back at you. Remarkably stable with no need for a tail, it bends or flattens automatically to adjust to the wind. A total departure from his soft kites, his latest design is a Hyperbolic Paraboloid, hence the name Hypar."

    Review this item:
    After the first flight of my Hypar, I'm delighted with it and wish I could get a bigger one. This is a remarkable design which is very easy to fly. It would be simple for a child to handle, but is great fun for adults, too. I flew it in a light breeze, and it moved around in a very lively fashion. Next time, I'll try it in more wind, and I'm sure it will go well. Congratulations to Martin Lester on a great design, and thank you to ITW for making it available. \ My video of the first flight is at http://youtu.be/LxPCv1cQACc .
