Do all kites need a tail to help them fly?

No, some kites fly badly with a tail. The tail add stability to a badly balanced kite but it also adds weight so can drag a gently pulling kite down. Unless a kite is homemade or asymetric in design it should be well balanced. As most kites are now mass produced and quite accurate people mostly use them to look pretty! A few kites (Sodi's) have rope tails to add weight at the base and produce the correct angle of attact to the wind. A looped tail made from a single piece of fabric and attached at two points on the base of the kite is used on some kites such as smaller sleds to add to the lift. Kites such as box kites and tetrahedral kites are stable without tails. The most common kite requiring a tail is the flat diamond kite.


How does the length of a kite's tail effect the way it flies?

A tail will steady a kite, help stop it from darting around. The longer the tail the more a kite will sit in one place.


How does the length of the kite tail affect the way it flies?

The tail causes drag and keeps the kite stable. By pulling down, on the part of the kite it is attached to, it keeps it orientated upright and more stable.The longer the tail, the more drag. A short tail, may not be enough in a strong wind to stabilise the kite. A tail that is too long, may cause difficulties in getting it off the ground in a light wind.
