|A couple of lit kites flying over Woodchurch Green|
|My 3D Box Kite from Emma Kites|
I was looking for a kite where the spars were visible so that I could stickytape “Glow-Sticks” to them for the night flight. There were a few kites that managed to weather the heavy wind which was a bit steadier once you got up to about 100 feet.
I had real problems getting my four Deltas to carry the various light sets I had bought for them and all bar one seemed unbalanced, I tried strapping the light set to the flying line to take the weight off the kite itself however even this did not work. Fortunately I had one Delta which I had sorted out mid week which seemed to fly okay.
Whilst I was struggling with kites and battery packs others had created a wind garden providing light and sound, with strings of halloween lights between them.
As dusk fell lights were switched on and the night flight began. Photos are few as I was relying on the preset firework setting on my
sadly it did not work as well as I had hoped.
I managed to have 3 kites flying, first off my Delta with multicoloured fairy lights attached.
Secondly my 3D box kite in which the glow-sticks were invisible due to an almost full moon shining down on us so I attached half a dozen red and white flashing key-fob LED’s, lastly my Skull Pudsey which looked good once it had been bombarded with dark light. I was pleased with this as I had spent a week creating and painting it with fluorescent paints the original design comes from pyrogirlx.
There were quite a few kites in the air with various light displays and sound boxes, unfortunately despite the publicity and hard work put in by the organiser, public attendance was very light.
I have to say thank you for the cookies and cakes which were provided – they were yummy.
