You're having way too much fun, jim!

How many kites? And how much total pull on the kite string? For example, could they lift 10 kg?

salut la compagnie !

How many kites? on this train around 45 , I can add more if the wind is laminar
my best is 147 last summer

 And how much total pull on the kite string?
from 1 to 8 kilos

For example, could they lift 10 kg? no
 for heavy pull it's best to use box kites (cellular) or parafoils

what is real cool is that i build everything myself : split bamboo , gluing , stringing , etc



have a good summer

Nice place to get away from covid!  8)

Hopefully one day I will throw a top and fly a kite in Corsica  ;D

I enjoyed listening to the music within the whirl of the bearing top.  We should be doing more of this kind of thing here in the states.  Thanks also for the kite video.  It is good to see you enjoying life.
