My team holds the Guinness World Record for the altitude of a single kite. The four of us expert builders and enthusiasts flew a 12.34 sq. metre kite to 16,009 ft. above ground level in 2014. We made 8 series of attempts from a remote sheep station in Australia between 2004 and 20014. It was a highly technical achievement which is is detailed in the web site at http://kitesite.com.au/kiterecord/High_Flying.html
I have also incorporated chess into my kite hobby with some chess graphics on big kites. My team are reforming to make further attempts on the single kite record and the kite train record with flights targeted at 25,000 ft. and 40,000 ft. respectively.
