Product Description

Product Description

The Kitty Hawk Flyer is a working replica of the 1903 Wright Flyer, the first successful airplane. The magnificent three-dimensional body and dual working propellers give this uniquely constructed design a realistic flight appearance. Designed by renowned kite artist Joel K. Scholz, this Flyer has a ripstop nylon and polyester sail for durability. It is easy to assemble and to fly. When not in use, the Kitty Hawk Flyer makes an eye-catching decoration in a bedroom or playroom when not in use. For ages 6 and up. On December 17, 1903, the 1903 Wright Flyer made four flights at Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. It was the first heavier-than-air, powered aircraft to make a sustained, controlled flight with a pilot. Sizes 24"H 46" wingspan

We had high hopes for this kite during our beach trip, and it looked like it was going to deliver. The first day, it was easily launched and flew steady as a rock for most of the day. It also looked great flying over our beach site. However, when the winds got erratic at the end of the day, it crashed in the ocean. After that, when we tried to fly it the next day, it listed to the left and would crash soon after launching. Upon examination, we noted that the lines at the front of the kite and the nylon were twisted. We tried, but could to untwist either.

If you want a kite that you can launch and let fly relatively unattended all day, this is not the kite for you.

Please note this same kite is sold at another entry and name and better picture here at Amazon at a significantly higher price. Careful examination tells me it is probably made in Germany, certainly not in China. I received this one yesterday carefully packed in a large cardboard box protecting the smaller plastic bag with the kite and string. It was partially assembled with an instruction sheet with a multilingual list of safety rules for kites. Other wise there was a parts list with picture and a simple exploded diagram to guide assembly. instructions included a clear diagram on how to tie a larks head knot, with no indication of why I would want to. The other diagrams were not much more help. I hope the Smithsonian higher priced version includes better instructions.

I have set the whole thing aside until I am in a better mood and ready to apply my very limited aeronautical engineering skills to this project. I also am considering a consultation with an acquaintance who is a very serious kite flyer. If I do get this thing put together, I will come back here with an update.

The material itself is pale yellow rip-stop nylon with carefully sewn pockets for the various plastic struts. Seems very well constructed, if I can ever get it put together.

Difficult to assemble--so heavy hurricane winds would be needed to keep it up in the air-
Really difficult to take apart to send back for a refund-
