Summer project

Over the summer we have been asked to make a kite, 
so the first thing I set about doing was deciding what shape to make it 
- which involved flying some kites on the beach on a windy day.

Of all the kites I flew, this parafoil shape (above) 
seemed to work the best, 
so I decided to base my kite on this design.

I also experimented with tying a carrier bag to some string, 
and it flew surprisingly well, so this made me consider 
using this material within the kite.
