The mini kite kit is similar to the mini balloon kit, but ships with a large “octopus” kite (some say it's a squid!) that’s a beautiful and stable flyer in medium winds, and packs down into a small nylon bag for easy travel. It won’t fly in as light wind conditions, or carry as much as our full-size Kite Mapping Pack, but you can throw it in your backpack or in a Public Lab tote, and honestly the octopus is just a lot of fun to fly.

This kit comes with:

  • 1000 feet of 50 lb string
  • 1 large "octopus" kite
  • canvas gloves
  • rubber bands, zip-ties, and a carabiner

But there are remaining questions and refinements to make on this kit -- that’s why we’re calling it a Prototyping Kit -- and, just like the original Balloon Mapping Kit, we’re going to collaboratively work on these issues by sharing knowledge on the Public Lab website
