Flip the sail to start the rotor, then let the wind take it from there. The wing spins and the colors blur as it climbs into the sky. A kaleidoscope in motion, whirling in the wind.
Steve Wingert designed this extraordinary flying machine on the dunes where the Wright Brothers first flew. We thought it was so cool that everyone should have one. The Flip Kite gets its lift from the Magnus Effect, the same principle that makes baseballs curve and golf balls loft. The vertical ring acts as a gyroscope to hold it steady in gusty winds.
The Flip Kite comes with 200′ of flying line and flies best in moderate to strong winds. It folds flat with no assembly required. Just flip open the ring, tie on the line, and get ready to be amazed.
