This is the kite that replicates the unique canard biplane design of the original Wright Flyer from 1903. Designed by world-renowned kite artist Joel Scholz, its fiberglass frame, struts, and cross-pieces support the twin wings, foreplanes, and fuselage—all made from ripstop polyster—faithfully depicting the famous airplane’s airframe. The 1/12-scale wings produce a 46" wingspan that generates lift in ideal winds of 8 - 18 mph. The included spool of 37-lb.-test polyester string allows flights up to 200' high. Minimal assembly. Ages 8 and up. 24" L x 46" W x 9" H. (12 oz.)

Other than a hard to see drawing of the assembled kite, there were no written instructions as to how to put it together. After trial and error I have it together and won't take it apart because I'll never get it together again. Now I don't know where I'll store it. Haven't flown it yet because we haven't had breezy weather yet.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
