Flat & Bowed

"The lifting surface is a single plane, usually a simple geometric shape. The surface may be bowed, decreasing surface area and increasing drag for improved stability. Diamonds, Hexagons, Eddys, Rokkakus, Edos, Cobras, Bermudas are all examples of Flat or Bowed kites. "

PLAN/LINK KITEBUILDER COMMENT
101 Stars Drachenseite von Hilmar Rilling A great looking kite!  Reserve a few hours for this one.  The tinkertoy fitting in the center is available in Kite Studio's Spar to Spar Fittings.
Brandes Flare Verlin It's a very hard pulling kite, & because of it's "high aspect ratio" sail, it's rather unstable in the air. The drogue settles it down very nicely though.
 
Brogden John Maxworthy This kite is easy to hand launch and is steady in the sky. Well, almost steady; it slowly slides side to side about 6" in a sea breeze.

 
Bug Buddies (low aspect) Ed Hummel The good part about this is that tall kites tend to be more stable than wide ones. So, if like me, you have too many kites that enjoy their freedom and move all over the place, you might want to try this one.

Eddy Charlie Charlton the great thing about Eddy kites is they look like kites, are easy to fly and they can fly with or without a tail
Eddy Art & Flywork Here it is... the kite for every one who thinks building your own is difficult.
Eddy Air-Fun Kites Kite flying with children is a great way to spend any day. Why not turn it into an educational activity as well by teaching them to make their own kites
