No new posts Project 3.0 - Lil Genki
Presented by Kiteguy, this forum was host to our THIRD Online Kitebuilding class. The project was taught to the level of someone that has never built a kite of this sort. We will be looking at the kite as one built from plans, but not being constrained to the plan. There is an opportunity to take this design and run with itů.in all directions. However, you will be challenged to stick with the basic wing shape, just to show how many different ways something can be built and still have a unique kite. Enter the forum to learn more.
