Exciting and challenging to fly, Fighter Kites are single line kites that you maneuver with line tension alone. Let out line to make them spin. Tug on the line and they’ll dart forward. In some parts of the world, Fighter kites are flown with glass coated line and the fliers maneuver their kites in order to cut each other’s kite string down. Kite fighting in Nepal is especially active during the festival of Dashain. Modern Fighter kite designers aim for maximum stability, but it is instability that makes it possible to control a fighter kite. Let out line and your kite will flatten and spin. A light tug on the line causes its cross spar to bow bank and dart in the direction it’s pointing. With practice, flying a fighter lets you play with the wind itself.
