When the serpent rises to the maximum height of the free part of the handrail, pull him to the ground and, fixing guard rails at the bottom, begin to retreat back again, thereby lifting the snake to its maximum height. Perform this maneuver a few times to reach that height where the wind will allow the snake to climb into the sky without your help. Use this method in a weak or uneven wind, or if space is not enough to run.

Usually, the set is manufactured in the factory of kites includes the frame with him stretched synthetic fabric, bobbin and thread the guard rails, rack and bridle. Rail is a metal or plastic rod, and a bridle is used to connect the snake with the guard rails (often called the bridle binding in accordance with its purpose).
To assemble the kite, firmly grasp the frame and slide the bridle in her holes. Depending on the design of the serpent, the bridle may have one or more mounting locations to have the keel and the regulating ring.
Flip the frame with the back facing you and pass the rail into the loops or holes located on the ends of the bridle.
Look on the frame, the grooves located at the edges of the canvas. Thread the ends of the rails in these grooves. Please note that the rake should be placed "on the back" of the serpent, and not from that side which carries the guard rails.
Turn the frame face to his and tie it to the bridle bobbin thread. If the serpent had a tail, secure it.
If the snake rake is missing, simply clip the bridle in her holes, attach the guard rails and secure the tail.
If the rail is there, but no bridle - look on the body of the snake special hole or carabiner and attach the thread spools. Then flip the snake back side and insert the rail.
There are design kites with one or more rails. Reiki can be parallel, perpendicular or at an angle to each other. Regardless of this, the principle of their attachment is the same. They should be located on the back side of the serpent and to be fixed in drilled holes.
To fly a kite should in windy weather with open area remote from houses and trees. With a strong, gusty wind kites are not recommended.

You can go the other way and first make a wooden frame, and then pull on the paper or fabric. It must be done as tight as you can to kite didn't resist the wind and was obedient.

To increase the density of the paper it is impregnated with water after drying, which increases the degree of tension of the canvas. If on paper drawing with watercolors, the additional impregnation is not required – watercolor abundantly soluble in water, and this moisture will be enough.

After making the main part of the snake, you need to tie it to the twine to keep the balance of the design. For the coil cut three strands and attach them so that they met in the center, exactly and without warps. At the convergence of the ends fasten with knot, and in this place attach one long string, or even reel to fly a kite as high as possible.
