Saw this on the Invento/HQ web-site:

Looks pretty Skydancer-y to me, but not clear from the picture how similar it really is. Anyone know to what degree the orginal Skydancer is patented? I know Con Engels has exclusive rights to build and sell Skydancers in the US, but not sure what the worldwide situation is.

Unfortunately David Davis, the designer, has passed away. I do not know how far he went with copyrights on the kite.
Certainly a very similar design.

Heard from Invento that the Yon will not be produced, to avoid copyright issues ...
