The model is fully rigged for animation, with dynamic setup for the wires that follow the bending and movement of the kite, as well as shaking in the wind.
*** see the accompanying video rig demo for a full feature demonstration ***
The controller for the top sail contains sliders for banding the sail, as well as for the wind strength on sail and wires.
If you unhide the display layer '_kite_rig', you will have full control over the noise settings as well as be able to position the end of the wires however you like (for instance, if you want to replace the handle).
The top sail has hi-res textures for diffuse and bump, based on photos of real kites.
The wires and the handle do not have textures, but there is a free handle elsewhere on Turbosquid that looks great.
