Description It's one of the most popular workshop kite in Europe: the 5-Sided Twisted Box Kite a.k.a. Drumbox Kite.  This kite is Dick Toonen's Drum Kite Design.  Thanks Dick!  This kite has 10 triangular concave panels.  The camber is induced by sewing the long curved edges together with the next adjoining panel. And each kit incorporates a specially fabricated fitting that gives this kite its unique shape. Fittings are made by Jan Grandia of the Netherlands.
