Antenna Lifting Kite
One of the most enjoyable portable activities that you can do with the family or alone is using a kite-borne antenna. I have used kites to hold up antennas all over the World from Antarctica to Chile to Jordan and the UK. A key factor in successful kite operating is selecting the right sort and size of kite. Our SOTAkites are specially selected for this specific application. Easy to fly and stable, they are the perfect aerial-platform. This kite is big enough to lift antennas with ease but small enough to be easy control – even in high winds. It’s a super high quality product that will give you many years of fun!
Pack includes SOTAkite, drogue tail, line on reel, instructions, kite bag.
Operating windspeeds 5-18 MPH (good wide range for maximum utility!). Ripstock nylon flying surface, 168 x 100 cm. Age suitability 14+.
Also check out our shock cord – ideal for reducing the strain on kite-borne antennas. We advise that you need at least 5 metres of this product.
