Trying the Skyfoil kite

John KC0KBG very generously mailed me this frameless kite. The good thing about it is it has no bulky poles. Hence it can scrunch up into a small light package ideal for portable QRP. 

In this video I take it for a fly. It probably isn't great for very light winds but in a moderate wind it held up, even supporting 20 metres of thin hookup wire for an antenna. The video below is my test of it. 

You'll be able to buy it via Walmart stores in the US later this year. Or you can order it via Amazon. Link is here (note that it's an affiliate link so I get a small commission on items sold - no extra cost to you).

If you do get one please let me know how you go in the comments below!
