D.I.Y. KΙΤΕ

Ιδού ένα tutorial για κατασκευή χαρταετού εύκολα & φτηνά. (όχι άλλοι αετοί ολυμπιακοπαναθηναικού στον αέρα)!
Here is a tutorial for kite-making the cheap & easy way. Total cost of materials 2-3 Euros per Kite.

——————————————————————————————————————————-
Materials:

1) Lightweight paper
2) Balsa wood sticks (used mainly for modeling)
3) String
4) Wheatpaste (you can make it on your own. instructions)
5) Brush
6) X-Acto Knife (or scissors)
7) Old Newspapers
——————————————————————————————————————————-

——————————————————————————————————————————-
Cut the tip of every balsa stick so you can later pass the string to form the shape of the kite…
——————————————————————————————————————————-


——————————————————————————————————————————-
Skeleton would be either octagon or hexagon (depends of the number of the sticks you use 3-4). Make a strong knot in the center.
——————————————————————————————————————————-


——————————————————————————————————————————-
Tie a string across the woods to form the shape. It should be pretty tight..
——————————————————————————————————————————-

——————————————————————————————————————————-
Now you have to stick the paper to the frame.
——————————————————————————————————————————-

——————————————————————————————————————————-
For that we’ll use wheatpaste. Bake some and take a break… Instructions for the glue here.
——————————————————————————————————————————-


——————————————————————————————————————————-
Now you glue every side of the kite.
——————————————————————————————————————————-

——————————————————————————————————————————-
Voila! It’s ready. Leave it to dry overnight.
——————————————————————————————————————————-

You can decorate it however you like but take in account the weight factor. You must also make a tail for your kite. By cutting strips of newspaper and tying them in a string. Last but not least for the balancing there are some simple rules you have to follow. Bellow is a diagram of how you should finish your kite..

Below some photos of the actual fling of the kites. Both models were working despite the lack of air that day.
