From my experience, just slightly shorter than needed.

Thanks for the advice, guys. I'll make sure I shrink my application to fit the string as needed.

Anybody know what kind of string to use?

A ball of White Cotton 10 ply string is 475 feet long.

Twine comes in 200' rolls.

Quantum strings are both finite and infinite.

Cut off twice as much string as you think you'll need, then it will only be a little too short.

It all depends on whether you're a kite flyer or a programmer.
