Project Ideas

  • Attaching lights for night flying. It would be awesome to try to illuminate the tail on a dual-line stunt kite.
  • Microprocess + accelerometer + RGB LEDs on the leading edge of a stunt kite. We can program it to change the color pattern as the g-forces increase, when it goes into a steep turn or loop. Or maybe a speaker, and have the kite scream when diving?
  • Aerial photography. There was a group at MakerFaire selling camera rigs for large single-line kites. Designing a rig of our own might be a fun shop project, too.
  • Building our own kites. We can easily find patterns, and we have a sewing machine upstairs, near the electronics lab.

Topics to cover

  • Basic kite maintenance
  • Places to fly
