It seems to be very difficult to find someone who produces Cody kites
professionally, but this is the information that we have got so far:
- Jeffrey C. Burka
"I make and sell miniature Codys, built of ripstop nylon (and
occasionally polyester) on wooden dowels with micro-carbon battens and spectra
The cells are ~13cm x 12cm and the kites stand 40.6cm tall. I do both
as standard and an extended wing (with two battens/side). The extended
wing does *not* have the additional top sail, but does have 3 bracing lines
(again made of spectra) from the top bridle point to each of the
of the kites/prices are available.
Peter Loop has emailed me the following information:
"The best (IMHO) Cody kite maker in the US is back in business and
ready to take orders. Rick Brown, who bares a striking resemblance to
old S.F. himself can be reached at:

- Dan Flintjer
Bill Tyrell has emailed us the following:
"I just talked to Dan Flintjer and he has a dozen 10' wingspan Codys in
stock. They're available at his previous wholesale cost of $460 each,
with carbon spars, instruction booklet, carry case and already sprayed
with "tree repellent." Just ask him about it....
I also understand that "advertising" isn't proper on this forum but I
wouldn't want unfounded rumors about Dan not making Codys anymore to
be believed. He's always made a very high quality Cody with unusual
design features that are really distinctive. He has patterns to make them up
to 35' wingspan."
Dan Flintjer can be contacted at 1 716 824 6688 in Blasdell New York.
