Wow, that's pretty cool. How big is it?
It's 8 ft. (2.4 M) from point to point (diagonally or across the middle of the kite as it flys with the flat face to the top rather than a point) and covers an area of roughly 41.6 sq.ft. (3.9 sq.M). It contains more than 350 individual pieces of fabric, reinforcement, edge binding, grosgrain ribbon and twill tape.
That's not the biggest kite we have built to date either. These.....
..... are 14.5 ft. (4.4 M) from wing tip to wing tip and stand 6 ft. (1.8 M) tall including the tail.
