Whoops. I should have checked in Kite Lines. They cary the Schimmelpfennig,
as well as a book in Dutch called _Stuntvliegers Bouwen en Besturen_.
There's no mention of the Schimmelpfennig book in a translation.

Another "whoops"--something I should have stated m'self. Selling copies
of kites without permission is _very_ uncool. To date, I've only built
copies of kites I myself own (or modifications thereof), with the exception
of my Pro (and I've been waiting 'til I have the money so I can buy one
of those as well). Kite makers work hard to put good kites on the market,
and while I don't really mind making my own stuff, I don't want to take
additional bread out of _their_ pockets.
