Lets go fly a kite – Kitedrone Kites
Lets go fly a kite up where the air is bright! Did you know that the 8th February marks National Kite Flying Day where kite flying enthusiasts head outside and hope for some fantastic wind.
Kitedrone offer a fab range of brightly coloured easy to assemble kites that can achieve amazing heights.
Did you know that kites date back to China in 470 B.C. and the history of the origins relate to the way the wind affects the leaves on the trees, te shelters the people lived in and the blowing of the sails on their ship and the hats they wore upon their heads.
Everybody can enjoy a kite from keen enthusiasts to a fun free family activity.
Kitedrone is the ultimate range of high performance kites all set to transform the skies into a colourful spectacle this Spring! The impressive range of kites are supplied in their own transport tube and are available in both Aircraft and Twinstar styles and are all super-easy to assemble and launch up to 300 feet in the air.
Kitedrone offer two shapes of kite, the traditional Box Style kite which is ready to go with a quick one step assembly and can be hooked up to a Go-pro to record your flights.
The Aircraft style kite requires no assembly and has an impressive 5ft wingspan. Air pockets in the body inflate the fuselage and engine pods to increase flying performance giving the ultimate flying experience.
Both kites comes in a transport tube which makes it perfect for putting in and out of the car and storing. Kitedrone kites are just £29.99 and can be used time and again.
We were gifted a Kitedrone Buster Fusionwing in Camo print to see what we thought.
We headed to the site of the Exmouth Kite Festival which we went to last year. Its a large open space right next to the estuary which is the perfect spot for flying. we weren’t the only ones with the same idea as we saw families and groups unloading kites, windsurfing gear and surfing gear.
We were thoroughly impressed when we took the kite out of the tube and apart from attaching the spool it was ready to go. It was a lot bigger than I expected, but was a cool shape and we were excited to give it a go. It looked well made even with our inexpert eyes.
It was hilarious watching Isabelle and Chris getting the kite in the air. Watching Isabelle being pulled along as the wind took the kite was so funny, but she soon got the hand of letting out the string and it went really high looping and soaring.
We all had a turn and I was quite surprised at how strong the pull was when I had a go. Freddie observed from the comfort of his pram and was happy sat watching.
I would say that we spent a good couple of hours flying the kite before everybody got a bit hungry and cold.
We really enjoyed ourselves. The kite itself was well made and easy to use straight out of the tube. We spent a good couple of hours running around flying, taking it in turns which was a lot of fun.
I would definitely recommend the Kitedrone kites for a fun and free activity (aside the initial cost) which gets the family outside and running about.
Next time were going to make it a bit of a family thing and go with some of the cousins which will be a fun day for Isabelle.
