One of a Kind Kite: Maurizio's Millestelle Kite
Inspired by traditional Centipede kites, Maurizio's Millestelle is a modern colorful rendition. Difficult to make and fly, Centipedes have always been show-stoppers with their wonderful, undulating motion in the sky. This one is uniquely easy to fly because it's flown from two lines attached to the ends of a wooden rod, giving you control of its flight. Made by Maurizio in Italy, of nylon sailcloth on aluminum, wood and fiberglass spars, the 16-point star head is 50" across. The 29 four-point body sections are 33" wide with 18" outriggers and 16" long drogues. Cases are included along with two sand anchors. Wind range 7 to 25 mph. This is a one-of-a-kind custom kite.
