    Triangulation Kite
    Interesting kite, but seems picky about conditions.

    Product Rating What is your opinion of this product? I've tried to fly it twice and not had good luck yet. It will readily rise in a strong steady breeze, but it seems tail heavy. If there's even a short lull, it loses lift, collapses, and usually tilts backward as it does so, often landing on its rear or top. It's difficult to recover once it's tilted backward, since it flies at a high angle and needs the breeze needs to go *through* the kite from front to back for it to stay in shape and fly, instead of staying upright and gliding and floating for a bit until the wind picks back up, like a basic delta. It's not structured like a box kite; it's more like three separate delta kites connected by fabric, which lay flat on top of each other when on the ground. Fly it in steady wind, with no building or trees to cause turbulence. Otherwise you'll see it do backflips as you try to get it airborne.
    Easy kite for even kids to fly

    What is your opinion of this product? This kite is easy to put together, easy to launch, and easy to fly. It doesn't look nearly as good to the flyer as it does to those watching it from the side as the flyer is basically seeing it in two dimensions while observers can see the three dimensional levels. Also, It's not very large so flying it high makes it less noticeable. It is, however, a very easy kite for any novice to get up and keep up. One at least twice its size would be more fun, though.
    Triangulation is a great design

    What is your opinion of this product? Triangulation is a great design. It's hard to appreciate unless you actually see it, as it looks different from every angle. Basically it is three wings, like an old-fashioned triplane aircraft, but it has only three spars to fit and goes together very quickly. Its greatest advantage is the ability to fly well in winds that are higher than most kites would tolerate. It's well-made and should last a long time. I wish the manufacturer would produce a bigger version!
