In July 2011 Right Brothers put wing warping to the test by building and flying a five-foot box kite in the approximate shape of a biplane. When the wings were warped, or twisted, one end would receive more lift and rise, starting a turn in the direction of the lower end. Warping was controlled by four lines attached to the kite. The lines led to two sticks held by the kite flyer, which tilted them in opposite directions to twist the wings and make the kite bank left or right.

Right Brothers are Wises Forget, Giul, Jack & Alex Zoltan.
