Delta Wing Kites Skytrek

The Skytrek is a modified standard Rogallo for both foot launching and towing. It features reversible wires for seated and prone flying, a cambered keel, reinforced leading edges to eliminate wing warp and battens on tow kites. Its shorter keel, improved sail design, wide nose angle, and adjustable camber.
The spars are made from 6063-T832 clear anodised aluminium tubing, 1.5in .049 and 1 5/8in x .049 for the leading edges and keel and 1 5/8in x .058 for the crossbar.
Rigging cable is 3/32in 7x7 stainless steel. Cable ends are nico swedged and have protective coatings. No turnbuckles are used. Upper rigging uses cable tensioners.
The cross bar has special breakdown feature. The control bars are knurled. It may be set up for towing with optional stainless steel bolts and nuts, special 4030 chrome molley steel with precision release and floats.
All nuts and bolts are aircraft quality. Specially designed cable tensioners, saddles, bushings, wingposts, noseplates, brackets, tangs, and nut covers are fitted. Eye bolts are used to eliminate shackles.
