Fled Mark III Plans

Kite plan in PDF format

This is a very good light-wind lifter, which I adapted from a design by Michael Andersen. It is a cross between a Sled kite and a Flare, hence "FLED". It's a stable, strong, light-wind kite that flies at a line angle of 65 - 70 degrees, just about perfect for KAP or line laundry.

The Fled is very forgiving. It will fly with or without the included drogue tail, and with or without bowing the spreader spar, but is more stable for KAP with both."

This is a diagram showing proportions which can be scaled to whatever size kite you wish. It is not a detailed set of instructions, but if you've made a kite before, you won't have any problem.
