Here is the video - the flying is so so, but I think you can see that the kite is stable (at least by my definition). Based on 2 weather stations (16-19 and 16-22) and an on-field hand held wind meters (21mph), my best estimate is that this is truly close to 20. I only included the highest wind video.http://vimeo.com/10860021
I'm rather new to high wind flying, but I've seen Lam do some amazing flying with the vented in 25. At that level, the kite may be Fearless, but I'm not!
I only wish I had taped it - some day, I will - hopefully at one of the festivals this summer .
@Frazer - I thought about shipping the kite, but I just don't think I would want to be without it for very long. If we meet, I'd be happy to let you or any competent flyer try it out. As always, you should try before you buy - this kite has a different feel than others I've flown, but thats exactly why I like it so much. Its small input, patient with the flyer, and has a very stable turtle - some just don't care for all those attributes. On the other hand, if you buy one and don't care for it - I don't think you would be in any danger of losing more than $75 or so by selling it to someone at a discount.
