AD – This is a gifted collaboration
Let’s go fly a kite up to the highest height! Did you know that kites date back to 470 B.C and now has a recognised day each year for kite flyers to celebrate? National Kite Flying Day is observed on the 8th February.
So although a little late to the party, we thought we could put our Kitedrone Twinstar to the test from Character Online, who have some lovely kites for kids.
Putting the kite together was really simple. It comes rolled up in a long protective tube which you just pop the lid and take out your kite. It also makes a brilliant Digeridoo!
All you need to do to assemble the kite is to install the two plastic support rods in each end and you are ready to start flying!
Ours has a cool Hot Rods design and there are 8 different designs to choose from in total.
This awesome box-shaped kite can reach up to 90 metres in the air. It wasn’t all that windy outside when we headed out to the fields, but the kite soon took to the skies with very little effort. As soon as the kite starts to descend you just give a gentle pull on the handle to send it back up on its way.
Another cool feature is that you can hook up a Go Pro camera to the kite so you can have a bird’s eye view from the sky.
Jayden played with his kite until dusk and me and Craig even relived our childhood and had a go! Kite flying is a fun activity for all of the family and we will be taking this to the beach with us when we go away.
