Vintage Invader Turbo Kite
- Open package. Kite has never been used or assembled. All parts present and in like-new condition. Assembly instructions included.
- Has a 24" wingspan and is made of styrofoam.
- Flies best in winds from 8-25 mph.
- Emits strobe-like flashes in bright sunlight.
- From the package: "This Invader Turbo-Kite is easy to assemble and can be flown with a hand line or fishing rod and reel. It rotates easily in the wind and climbs fast, just let out line. The Turbo-Kite rotates with a whirring sound at high speed and will attract a wide variety of birds."
- I did some research on this type of kite and found that they were once used as duck lures by hunters.
- Made by I.S.L.E. Laboratories
- Manufacture date of this kite is uncertain but I would date it to around 1976-77 as the back of the package has a fake newspaper headline with "1776-1976 Happy Birthday America" in the top left corner.
