Name: 6 foot Pyro Delta
Price: $79.89 (FWW club member price)
Description: This a variation of a delta kite
Skill Level: Well suited for older children and adults
We flew/tested the Rhombus 6 foot Pyro Delta kite in a wind range from about 7 to 12 MPH. In this wind range the kite flew steady. The enclosed instructions state the wind range to be 5 to 18 MPH. We estimate the recommended/realistic and safe wind range to be about 5 to 14 MPH.
This pyro delta is a good low to moderate wind speed flier. The leading edge and cross strut spars are made of thin fiberglass. FYI: Around 18 MPH sand starts to move/blow across the beach where we test our kites.
Kite Contents: 6 foot pyro delta kite with two 20 foot tails, kite line, zippered nylon storage bag, instructions.
The dimensions of the kite are 80 inches wide by 275 inches high.
The kite requires no modifications to the bridle. It is a fixed bridle. Assembly takes less than a minute. Insert the thin one-piece fiberglass cross strut and attach the flying line to the keel. The enclosed instructions/documentation do not describe how to assemble the kite.
The sail and tails are made of nylon and is hemmed for durability. The pockets for the cross strut fiberglass rod to insert into are reinforced with dacron.
The medium sail area and 20 foot tails of this kite lends itself best for visual appeal at a height up to about 150 feet. The long tails of this delta variation look nice in the sky
Note to Rhombus: We recommend that the sail be made of ripstop nylon
for a kite in the price range. Use of stronger leading edge spars and cross strut would allow the kite to flier better in moderate to high wind speeds. Also, the instructions need to describe how to assemble the kite for first time fliers.
Summary: At a club member price of $79.89, the Rhombus 6' Pyro Delta kite is an average value for older children and adults.
The 6 foot Rombus Pyro delta kite comes in different colors:
