As you can read in another blog post here at AERIALIS Kites, the prototype is ready. Anders has been busy (?) working out the design, sail pattern, framing and bridling the prototype and just a few days ago he took it for its virgin flight!
But that’s just the first step. Now we have to find what materials we need to make the kites at the workshop. So today I dived deep down into the basement and dug out all my icarex… and ventex. Which colours do we have and what quantities.
I unrolled every piece of icky on the living room floor, shot a photo and measured them all. Actually I do have quite a pile!
Here you can see a handful of the icky just waiting for that gentle breeze whispering in from the ocean longing to fly!
More bits and pieces will be required, but getting the fabrics straight is definitely one step closer to start the … production!
And don’t be afraid. The whole process will be cowered – in detail – here at AERIALIS Kites, so stay tuned for more!
