Train Kites

(video from YouTube – by Yokoyama Mitsuo)

Just like boxcars on a train, any number of similar kites can be flown together, one behind the other, to form a train of kites. The common flying line connects one kite to the next. Trains can generate an enormous amount of pull since each kite adds a little bit to the pull of the group.
