The Eagle looks quite real and attracts many admiring onlookers as it flaps its wings and moves left to right and up and down. You can fly it somewhat as you would a fighter kite, making it change direction by releasing some line and taking it up again. As the wind dies down, the Eagle slowly floats down, wings still (not flapping)as if it was hunting an elusive prey to pounce on just like an Eagle would. Very realistic. I have made a couple of simple modifications for wind conditions by making holes forward and aft of the suggested swivel attachment hole to make it climb or fly close to the ground. Also, I made a 'cinch' string to be able to draw the crossbar (spar) down on the wing for flying in very light wind or raising the spar 2 inches in strong winds. The Tyvek material is very tough and durable. A fun way to launch the bird is to place it on the ground (sans legs and fish) and walk out about 100 feet of line. (Light weight line like 30# Spectra enhances flight.) A quick snap while stepping back 'catapults' the Eagle off the ground, flapping it's wings as it flys high in the air. (Causes a startling but pleasant surprise to unsuspecting passers-by as this large bird 'jumps' into the air in front of them, flapping its wings as it rises into the sky).

One day a Red-tailed Hawk actually attacked the Eagle, buzzing it several times before it flew off. It looks that real up in the air.

I enjoy alternating flying the Eagle and flying my 4-line sport-kites several times a week.

Thank you. -Ted Svendsen, Svendsen Travel Group
