This talks about the swing test, for kites instead of model rockets, using just your arms, which looks like an excellent first test of your kite to me:

This is doing manually what a whirling arm can do non-manually.

From the comments:
An older presentation by Christoph Sieg from KiteSwarms 34C3 - Drones of Power: Airborne Wind Energy. He shows some nice graphs. He shows for example the optimal harvesting height, and also videos of tests.
The reason for posting it here, from minute 23:40 he talks about AWEsome: An open-source test platform for airborne wind energy systems. See also the project above that built on its code.
Instability: The Future of Drones? - Think Flight about trying to design an efficient flying wing and controlling it with ArduPilot.
