A blog detailing our collection of Peter Powell kites, and chronicling our flying of these kites. Plus a bit of PP kite history thrown in. Our collection to date can be seen here. I am keen to expand the collection, so if you have an old Peter Powell kite, whether made in the UK or the US, gathering dust and looking for a new home, why not get in touch? Depending on the kite (does it bring something new or different to my collection?), its condition (is it flyable? how much TLC does it need?), and the price you ask (+ shipping if from outside the UK), we may well be able to do a deal.

Adoptee #2

A few months ago, I blogged about being given three Peter Powell Mk I Stunters, which resulted in the Peter Powell Kites Adoption Agency. The first of these three was made R2F a few months ago, and the second one is now also ready to take back to the sky. Few small repairs to the sail, and a replacement of one of the two cross spreaders, was all it took.

It didn't come with a tail, but I decided to fly it with a white tail; something a bit different from the usual blue, red, or yellow tails.

I already have a red Mk I in the collection, but as that one is suffering from BSS (Brittle Sail Syndrome), she's unlikely ever to fly again. So this adoptee can nicely take her place in my collection!
