The Dolphin kite is a beautifully appliqued design that looks great and flys really well.
This Dolphin kite is one of the best ‘character’ kites we’ve ever seen. The quality of the stitching and of the printing make this big delta kite really stand out in the sky. Here is a short video of the Dolphin kite flying.
Deltas have a big sail area to catch the wind for light wind days and the Dolphin has a long wide tail to give it extra stability as the wind picks up. The long wide body acts like part of the sail to give it extra lift as well as stability. It flys in Light and Medium winds and had a mid to high aspect, it will fly from the horizon to over your head.
Delta Kites are light and medium wind specialists and very easy to fly. Because of their big sail area, they will generally fly in lighter winds then just about any other kite type. The long, wide tail helps to provide lift (because of it’s width) as well as stability (because of it’s length). This is beautifully appliqued and really looks fantastic in flight…..it also makes a great wall decoration when there’s no wind to go flying
