Quad-Lined Box Kite Perfected?

 Hmmmm. From quad box to quad biplane to quad box kite. Okay...
it's all related :)

 Here's a quad-lined box kite:
http://SportToday.org/***kites/721

 The end rods will *disappear* in the sky, as is... so, maybe
small strips of fabric along the outside rods (the ones from the
*front* panel to the *back* panel) would accent these rods,
giving the kite it's box-like look from a distance. As long as
these strips are small enough, they shouldn't hinder the box's
left/right sideways flight capabilities. Just make them big
enough for a visual effect.

 This kite should fly _very_ much **like** the Revolution kites
that many stunt kite fliers are familiar with. Of course, all
kites take a little *getting used to*. (My point is that the
controls should be similar... the ups, downs, sideways,
propeller movements, etc.)

 If you make this kite very big, let's say over 6 foot, you
might need a bridle, depending on the stiffness of rods you use.

 Hey, Mama... break out the Tyvek :)

 Okay... one more, then I have to go milk the chickens :)

 Modified quad box kite design (to help it *look* more like a
box kite :) AND, as a free bonus, today only, no money back if
dissatified, be the first on your beach, no, be the FIRST,
period (maybe), I have added the Magic Non-Active Cross-Your-
Heart-(God, I Hope I Don't Freaking Die)-Bridle. Copyright, my
donkey.

 "This (or something similar) should help the quad box kite
*look* like a box. I wouldn't put the strips on the side, as
they could easily rip.
 I mean the ends of the kite. I flunked algebra ;) "
