SIZE OF PROJECT:
3/4 Stealth Delta is 2.45 M wide (8 foot) with three 7 M (23 feet) streamer tails

WIND RANGE: 
3/4 Stealth Delta  flies superbly in a wide variety of winds.  

It performs well in winds far higher than most of the modern glider style deltas.  
 

The 3/4 Stealth Delta is a very, very good flying platform and reliably stable in a most conditions. It flies beautifully in light winds and up to firm sea breezes. It has a unique and innovative keel. The keel has graphics that complement the design in the main kite sail. 

The technique to produce the panels is vastly different to normal relief applique. Large coloured panels are assembled with the use of template boards and datum points.  These are fully sewn and transferred onto the final body panel. It is a useful and innovative technique to produce larger than normal sheets of colour(s) that can be easily used elsewhere.   

The class involves making and assembling a distinctive styled delta, a flawless flyer in a wide range of winds. It performs well in winds far higher than most of the modern glider style deltas.
