RC kite build logs.. show your kite and link it to your build log

I thought a simple thread to show your design... and with a link to its build log or discusion thread might help everybody to select a kite to build..

Will everybody please post in the same format and keep all comments posted to the build thread relevent to the design..

First a description and name...

Next the link...

Then any pictures...

Then a video...if one is available

The Octagonal design

How about an Octagon.. the shape makes for a better braced design. and the flying is second to none..

This is one of my favorites.. It can be made fully of CF and fabric with a non working removable tail as per the simple design..
Or it can be made with a depron body and working rudder as in the picture..I must admit to liking the depron body and rudder, for making fitting the radio gear a doddle and for the improved flying a rudder makes possible

The build is here for an octagon or a slight mod to a full circle
