Old Wobble....
... a dragon from my early days ....

Old Wobble was one of my first kites... I learned to fly lank kites with him and also our boys all learned to fly with Old Wobble.

It is a simple but large dragon that moves comfortably and calmly. It forgives almost all steering errors and can be flown in light winds as well as in strong winds.

The special thing about it is that it doesn't need any cross braces and has GRP rods both in the very long leading edge and as a keel.
When flying, it can flap its wings like a bird and you can “pump” the kite up with very little wind.

Here are 2 pictures of my old Wobble, which I unfortunately no longer have. I once lent it to a young father so that he and his children could learn to fly. Unfortunately I never got it back.


Sabine on the beach of Texel with our youngest - Alex - behind her you can see my Old Wobble. It was the little one  Version with “only” 2.80 meters wingspan.


Marcus with the Old Wobble in Malmsheim at a kite festival. Alex has grown a bit since then. But Marcus and Daniel could already fly with the kite back then.

And then in February 2017 I got the opportunity to buy a big Old Wobble and jumped at it immediately. I had waited a long time for such an opportunity. And it got even better, I got a second Old Wobble from Lüneburg. However, this is currently unconfirmed.


For cost reasons, the seller sawed the leading edges so that the postage remained affordable.
But the fact that the leading edge is lugged doesn't detract from the kite. So lets the almost 4 meters
big dragon better transport.

On May 13, 2017 at the edge of the northern Black Forest at the Schwanner Warte I was allowed to visit so for the first time
released an Old Wobble into the air many years ago.
I enjoyed the relaxed flying with the big wing and it was just as much fun to watch as it was back then
as he so slowly and leisurely made his orbits in the sky.


I don't think I had the bird in the air for the last time.

Unfortunately there are only very few offers on the market, I haven't seen him on the meadow or at kite festivals for a very long time.
