We were sent the Kitedrone Aircraft kite so we could review it and tell you about it! Kite flying is a really fun family activity, that gets you outdoors and moving.
Did you know that kites the exact origin of kites is not known but it is thought that they came from China? The earliest written account of kite flying was about 200 B.C. when the Chinese General Han Hsin of the Han Dynasty flew a kite over the walls of a city he was attacking to measure how far his army would have to tunnel to reach past the defences.
We didn’t use the kite for anything half as useful, but we imagine that General Han Hsin did not have as much fun as us!
Kitedrone high-performance kites transform the skies into a colourful spectacle this Spring! The kite is supplied in its own tube for easy transportation and tidy storage. We found the Aircraft kite really easy to assemble (in fact, my 6-year-old can manage it easily).
You simply slide the kite from the tube, unfold it and then slide the slim stick across the width near the head. Then you select which of the two holes to hook the string through – there are two options, low wind or high wind.
The Aircraft style Kitedrone has an impressive 5ft wingspan! Air pockets in the body inflate the fuselage and engine pods to increase flying performance.
Kite flying is a superb energetic outdoor activity that is perfect for a family day in the park.
If you are in the North East, don’t forget that it is the Newbiggin by the Sea’s 8th annual kite festival this Easter weekend (20th and 21st April 2019).
We found the Kitedrone Aircraft kite to be a fun kite to fly. The spool helps to get the kite higher and higher in the sky – in fact the kite can go up to 300m high!
