P2 kite

The P2 is an open source trickkite designed by Pim Kusters and Pierre ter Bogt (layout by Fred Blok). Their goal was to create a smaller kite that is low-cost, strong, trickable and easy to handle in a wide wind range but most of all a lot of fun to fly. It turned out to be quite precise with a nice feedback on the lines. It is capable of most tricks and has a stable fade and backflip.

On these pages you will find the plans to build your own P2. The templates, frame and bridle specs are available on the Plan pages. A colourizer is also available. We won’t explain how to build it step-by-step. There are multiple pages available on the web describing kitebuilding techniques. Please send us a picture (or video) of your build and we will add it to the Builds page. Use the P2 menu above to navigate these pages.
