Designed by two Dutch kite fliers in 1996, the circoflex
makes quite a statement in the sky. To get our version to
fly was a mission; so much so that it came close to being
binned. Ultimately, it was a small adjustment to the trailing
edge that turned it into a consistent performer.
More Unusual Kites
We saw this Mike Mosman designed kite at
Seaside 2004 and Rosemary just had to make one.
Mike kindly sent us his plan. Good light wind kite
but it does not like turbulence.
An Italian design that
Rosemary just had to make.
This kite train is designed by Masami
Takkuwa and is posted on the JKA
website. They are made of bamboo
and mylar or plastic. The bridles are
set to make the kites unstable and
hence shooting stars.
Good light wind kite.

and made by Rosemary at
Our latest very light weight version
of the circoflex flew perfectly on its
maiden flight. We obviously learnt
something from our first circoflex.
