Kite aerials are huge fun but not that popular. Why not? Well, maybe the perceived difficulty of launching is the issue. Our deltas and Conynes are easy to launch if you follow basic rules - see the video. You should NEVER have to run to launch a kite...if you have to run there's someing badly awry! Nevr launch the kite with the aerial as a wire, never launch it in a storm or in wind too strong for it, never tie the retraint cord round your hand or other body parts and never fly near power lines. But you knew all that, right?
You might think that we've missed a trick by not adding sled or soft cell kites to our stock listing: there's a reason we did that. Firstly, our friends at SOTA sell the soft kites and for SOTA they are the way to go - soft kites stuff in your kit bag, weigh nothing and pull like dogs. BUT...for a more impressive sight in the sky there's nothing to beat sticks and nylon! You wouldn't want to carry a full Cody up Snowdon, but on a beach or in a park why fly a soft kite when a Conyne will do the job more beautifully. So now you know.
