There is two popular kites, Bangpae and Gaori. While the Bangpae kite is being widely loved by experts, the Gaori kite is popular for kids and beginners. Three types of Gaori kite product have been survayed on the tow point. The aerodynamic force on Gaori kite is numerically calculated by using Fluent. Through flight simulations at the tow point of each kite type, the new tow point, at which the required minimum velocity is lower than those of existing tow points, has been proposed as a standard. The required minimum velocity is the threshold wind velocity at which the kite begins to fly.
