That video has been removed d/t copyright infringement notices. I wonder if it was the music or the kite? (Or both?)

hi guys
I'm interrested about the supernova. We haven't got information in france about this new kite.
how does the supernova fly in comparison with the superfly ?
More accurate ? less extrem ?
more slower ? easier in fly ?

Thanks for your help.

greetings.

It's a bigger kite than the Superfly, so pretty much all of these things.

I've only flown mine for 30 minutes in some pretty testing conditions, so don't want to comment beyond that.

thanks for your comments
i fly with slash std and vt1. I would like a kite with good accurate like the slash, but more fun in freestyle.
I flew with the superfly, but it seemed a little too extreme for me.. not an easy kite..!

Gone for Purple to go with the Superfly Std and Ul. Collect it in a couple of weeks.

Not mine, but the one that inspired the colour choice.  Spotted on a post on Drachenforum if I remember rightly.  Light blue wasn't one of Tim's standard colours at the time and he wasn't sure he had enough in stock to make a SN.  Turned out he did.

Hope you are enjoying it in better flying conditions than I get here.

In fact flying has taken a back seat for me due to family health issues and I've just realised I haven't flown for well over 5 months.

My NY resolution for 2019 needs to be to blow the dust off the kites and get out more.

Hi John,
We should catch up sometime, dying to try a SN. Had a great weekend at Lytham last year.

Hi Peter,

Would love to catch up, but it will have to be without the SN.  There is a reason that Paolo thinks it looks familiar.  It's migrated to the States.  Is your mobile number still the same?
