How to assemble a kite from what is available
Another 20 years ago the question of how to assemble a kite from improvised means was very relevant. It was unreal to buy it in the store. And to collect independently was considered a task of increased complexity. Now the situation has changed. Only the demand for kites fell very much, which is very wrong. The proposed article shows the procedure for the manufacture of two designs of such aircraft. Their main advantage is that you can make a home out of what is available.
Before you collect a kite, first of all, pay attention to the frame. To make it, we need thin wooden sticks. They should be light, strong and well dried. The proportions of the carcass are usually 4: 5 or 4: 6. It is with this ratio of the parties that it is possible to achieve the best aerodynamic indexes. For assembly, apply either thread complete with glue, or scotch tape. Also It will be necessary to have a strong garbage bag performing the functions of a carrier element. Still need a hank of strong and strong line.
Now let's look at how to assemble a kite in the simplest way. First you need to take 2 sticks 120 and 90 cm long. On the first, make a mark at a distance of 30 cm from the edge. In the second we measure the middle. In the place of these notches, the sticks are perpendicularly fastened together with adhesive tape or thread with glue. Further on this skeleton the strong package for dust is put on and with the certain step (2-3 sm) is fastened by means of all the same scotch. On the edges of a stick with a length of 90 cm, a fishing line is attached. A tail is attached behind it. It can be made from fishing line and pieces of the package, which will be tied on it. In the end, you should get a diamond with a tail. After the manipulations, the snake is ready to be launched.
The second option is more difficult
Harder to make a snake in the form of a rectangle. One of its sides should be 58 cm, and the second - 45 cm. The diagonal is equal to 75 cm. This length should be both sticks, which form the skeleton of this aircraft. Alsoyou need one more, 45 cm long, which is installed in front.
The order of assembling this snake is as follows: set the front bar, and from each side we put the two diagonals crosswise. All three joints are attached with adhesive tape or thread with glue. Then a polyethylene garbage bag is put on the received frame again. Otherwise, the algorithm of how to properly assemble a kite, is similar to the previously stated. Even the accessories are exactly the same. It is worth noting that it is much more difficult to do. There are no clear angles, and they need to be determined by selection or complex mathematical calculations. It is not always convenient. Therefore, this method of solving the problem of "how to assemble the kite in the best way" is suitable for more experienced masters. Only after the successful assembly of a simpler snake can you proceed to a more complex, second option.
Now you know how to assemble a kite. The instruction consists of such basic stages.
- We make a framework of boards.
- We put on it a plastic bag.
- Add to this the tail.
- Attach the handle.
The rest (decorating and adding any details) can already be added at your own discretion.
