Flip Rotor Kite – Spectrum – by Prism
A truly unique kiting experience awaits with Prism’s eye-catching new Flip Kite. Based on a patented design by Steve Wingert, the Flip’s rotor spins its way into the sky. Like a kaleidoscope in motion, the vivid graphics bend and blur, creating colors and patterns that can only be seen while it spins. Flip Rotor Kite – Spectrum – by Prism is easy to fly in a wide wind range. The vertical ring acts as a stabilizing gyroscope making it rock-steady even in gusty winds. The magic of this unusual little kite will bring a smile to your face and stares of amazement wherever you fly.
Rotors are one of the eight basic kite forms, yet few people have flown or even seen one. Rotors fly by spinning with the wind, achieving lift via the Magnus Effect. This is the same principle that gives golf balls loft and baseball pitches their curve. As the kite flies, you’ll feel a pulsing at the end of your line while it spins as fast as 200 rpm like a mysterious, wind-powered machine.
Best of all, there’s absolutely no assembly required. Just flip the stabilizing ring from flat to vertical, clip on your flying line and you’re ready to go. Find a little wind, pop it open, and watch it spin as it climbs into the sky. Amazingly durable, the Flip Kite is fun and easy to fly for all ages. Comes with 200 feet of Polyester flying line and line winder.
