Conyne Kite (French Military) 5 foot tall --- Aqua Wing
The Conyne Kite was designed by Silas Conyne, an American, and patented in 1902. It was presented to the public at the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The Conyne differs from a traditional box kite in that it has triangular cell construction. This kite was much used by the French in WWI and so it's popular name, French Military Kite. The Sun Oak version is a very strong pulling kite and flies well in light to moderate winds (8-18 mph). It is a high angle,stable flyer and comes with its own nylon storage bag. Our kite has a 5 ft. wing span, is 5 ft. in height and weighs 550 grams. It has basswood spars and disassembles to a length of 5 ft. We recommend 150 lb. test line.
