Eagle Kite

Eagle Flying High

The eagle kite is aerodynamically different from the standard swallow, diamond, or triangle kite. This kite was flying over Chaoyang Park in a fairly brisk wind. Notice that the wing tips are closed. In a stiff breeze the kite would be ripped from the frame without the extra fabric.
