Chinese Dragon Kites and other kites for hire
Chinese dragons are quite unlike dragons in the west; they are seen as wise, benevolent and bringers of good fortune. Dragon (or Centipede) kites are one of the most iconic of the traditional Chinese kites.
With dragon kites, all the lift is created by the tail segments; the feathers are essentially stabilisers. In strong winds the tail rises almost vertically. They will tolerate very high wind speeds - we have flown them in 25 mph winds.
Dragon kites are surprisingly good flyers. Even the smallest will fly given a decent wind - and the larger ones need only a gentle breeze. The really big ones need a team to handle them on the ground.
Kites for hire
We have a range of dragon kites available for hire, including red, black and white 30m dragons, a 50m dragon, right up to a monster 2-headed dragon with a 80 m tail.
These have been used in museum exhibitions, TV and film productions and corporate events.
