Plans for ultra-lightweight, collapsible, multi-cell tetrahedral kites
to download the TetraLite Kites Plans and Instructions Manual.
A link for downloading Adobe's Acrobat Reader free software for computers using operating systems other than Windows or Macs can be found on the TetraLite Kites "Links" page.
A note about materials: It has come to my attention that two of the materials specified in the Assembly Plans and Instructions Manual may not be as easily obtainable as I had thought. It is my hope that anyone who builds a TetraLite kite uses the exact materials called for, since it results in a very high performance kite. Therefore, I supply a list with information about these materials and from where they can be mail ordered or possibly found in your area along with the manual in the .zip file called "materials". I have never had a problem finding these materials here in Seattle, but a few people, especially in foreign countries, have. It should also be noted that some material substitutions can be utilized and may result in a fair to good flying kite.
As before mentioned, it is my hope that anyone who builds a TetraLite kite
uses the exact materials called for in order to achieve the great results that
I have with this design. And keep in mind that these materials are obtainable
via mail order.
NO UNSOLICITED EMAIL PLEASE! SPAMMERS WILL BE TRACKED AND REPORTED IN ALL KINDS OF NASTY WAYS INCLUDING REPORTING VIOLATIONS TO THE FEDERAL TRADE COMMISSION, MY ISP, THEIR ISP AND ANY SERVERS THEY ABUSE! Unsolicited email is a violation of our constitutional rights to privacy and many state and federal laws and I intend to defend those rights and laws with extreme prejudice.
