Wow - that kite is drop dead gorgeous. Such a simple design, but so effective.

I was lucky to have flown one of the prototypes with Chris earlier in the year at Basingstoke and it is a lovely kite although He always makes it look so easy! I fly a standard SF and found it needed similar inputs. Great design ,Fantastic build looks great in the sky.

I completely agree, if there is one Kite that requires a larger version then this is it :cool:

Really inspiring video, some of the best tricking ever recorded I reckon. Reminds me that I need to get out and get some flying in rather than being a lazy turd.

*Finally* got beach time with mine today ... took a little while to get up to speed with it, I've been flying bigger, less turtle happy, kites of late.

Ticks all the boxes tricks wise and rolls up great for a UL. I think the graphic looks even better than the STD too - its a winner all round.

My only real issue is with the slot machine, where I'm catching the lower wing. Interestingly enough my 540's are just dandy.

I guess should bite the bullet and seek the advice of self-proclaimed-resident-trick-meister that is Obj Juank.
