Double Skyraker!

As you may have seen on our Peter Powell Kite Collection blog, we now have a pair of Peter Powell Skyrakers, a 3-panel one and an 11-panel one.

Obviously, we had to fly them together ...

This happened with the wind gusting well over 20mph (on the ground, so add another 5mph or so where the kites usually are).

They do fly well together, but struggle with sharp corners. And despite their relatively small size (1.70m wing span) they develop quite a pull in winds over 20mph! 

We're not planning to fly them together in any specific routine, but I hope you agree with me that it just had to be done ...
