The Plans Le Quartz
As a start in trick kite building, I recommend the Le Quartz designed by Christian Derefat. Christian is one of the best pilots in Belgium (4 times Belgium champion!) and he has designed a lot of well known trick kites: Le Virus, Le Karma, Le neutron, "L'Organic", "Le Vortex", "Le Diablis" and "Le Monster". We are very grateful towards Christian for allowing us to use his trick kite Le Quartz in this website.
The blueprints of Christian Derefat are (opposed to a lot of others on the web) very reliable. The kite you'll build will certainly be a very good trick kite! You can download the plan in 3 versions. On this website you can only find the simplified version of Le Quartz .
