Cellular Kites

(video from YouTube – by Leon Ascensor)

Cellular kites are a three-dimensional style of kites that include a wide variety of box kites, snowflakes and stars. The many variants include the Hargrave, the triangular box kite with wings and the Cody, a full box with upturned wings. Some cellular kites are elaborate in their cell structures and sometimes have wings, fins and/or vanes. A number of cellular kites flown together on a line have the strength to lift heavy payloads.
