Mini-Mothra

M2-portA4This 300 sq. ft. kite arch is a blast to fly! A magnet for people on the beach.  Designed and built as a trainer kite to perfect flight controls such as launching and landing, climbing to high elevations, lifting payloads, and rotating to find the best wind.  Based on “mothra” architecture of rope load path and tarp sails.  Such kite arrays could some day be the basis for keeping large scale energy production systems aloft indefinitely. This kite is the baby sister of Mothra1, a 3000 sq. ft kite arch of the same design.
