Summary: Rainbow Stunt Kite, Seven-stack. Ripstop and aluminum diamond-shaped kites flown in train of seven. A competitor of Hyperkites, this was another company that pushed the sport kite industry forward, from predominately diamond-shaped single stunt kites to kite trains, and finally to big-wing sport kites like the Hawaiian Team kite. I recall these being sold in 3- and 6-packs and with the clip-on system, more kites could be easily added. Rainbow Stunt kite company was started by Steve Edeiken, who tragically died in a kite accident in 1983.
