Known for their playful aerial creations, Uwe and Peter Hespeler of Germany have fashioned the historic Brogden platform into this lively flying kite.

This is BIG BIG kite, it has 4 bowed sails that need the correct spars and tension to be applied when putting it together, this can be tricky in an open field as there is such a large sail area, it is also pretty time consuming. I have a 200lb line for this kite and although I am pretty sure you would never need it, I am not sure I would fly it on something lighter. Once constructed, this kite flies very well, it fills the sky and will keep climbing if you let it. I haven't flown it in winds above 12mph as it pulls hard at this range as it is.
