A kite is traditionally a tethered heavier-than-air craft with wing surfaces that react against the air to create lift and drag. A kite consists of wings, tethers and anchors. Kites have a bridle to guide the face of the kite at the correct angle so the wind can lift it. A kite may have fixed or moving anchors.

An interesting designer kite that reveals more the closer you look. Called the 'Manta', it could be considered a variation on the simple Diamond kite. Albeit with an extremely wide nose angle! Perhaps it is even closer to the Diamond Stunt kite since it has a leading edge spar rather than a cross-spar. T.P. (my-best-kite.com)
