Kites with hard wings have symmetrically arranged
bamboo frames; the rigid central frame enhances
the overall rigidity of the kite, as does the
directly to the frame glued paper or silk
covering. The two crossed tail spars do not form a
complete frame. Thus the free moveing lower seam
of the triangle, formed by the crossed bamboo
spars and the kite sail, will arch and form a
point of attack for the wind. Yangjiabu kites are
a typical example for kites with hard wings from
WeiFang. The kite sail is made of paper or silk,
and is coloured by woodcut and/or hand painted.
