A kite is considered to be the grandfather of modern aircraft. This harness motorless soaring leader was the first aircraft in the so long ago, when there was still such thing — aviation. Unfortunately, in the future, kites were replaced by more udachlivey fellow sky — models of gliders and planes.
Our time is characterized by the revival of kite sports, the occurrence of which is associated with the emergence of managed highly maneuverable acrobatic snake-ultralights capable of performing complex most complex aerobatics. Today, sport kite on crest of youth interest. There are several reasons. First of all, the relative simplicity of these aircraft, consisting, usually, of several slats, piece of fabric, a handful of rubber bands Yes coil of strong twine. At the same time, the creation of a pilot snake-ultralights — it’s a fun creative process that is associated with the search for the optimal geometric and aerodynamic parameters of the machine depend on its maneuverability, lifting capacity, speed, etc.
