Thanks Jim, that was cool.

Kinda looks like the lady in the beginning got some "Old school Dentistry" done too.  (Pliers+yank)

I think those Red Bull logo ones are Blackbirds. I might be mistaken though.

I would like to know what kites the pairs fliers were using: the White/Plum/Something or Other ones. Those are beautiful and seem to handle so smoothly.

Yeah, amazing control almost to the point that quads can produce and so incredibly relaxed and smooth! Blew me away. Had to post it.

Nice flying, too much talking. And too bad about the bad dental work...

I've found a real appeciation for the talent of pairs and team fliers since trying it a few times with a friend. Just playing follow the leader is tough.

You're right Jim. That's the BlackBirds kites of the Red Bull Kiteforce Team (http://www.redbull.fr/cs/Satellite/fr_FR/Profile/Red-Bull-Kiteforce-Team-021242759805030) (Numata Yasumasa, Richard Debray, Mathieu Mayet, Ramlal Tien).

The pair "Courant d'Air" is using "Fury kites" from Kite Related Design (Carl Robertshaw).

I did not recognize them.  :-[

And thanks for the names of the other Two team fliers.

Mmm.. The ones at 1:30 don't look like Furies.  ::)

Anyone know what those are?

Looking again.. maybe they are! Nice sail layouts!

I tried to make that sail pattern on the Fury colourizer - not possible, so if they are furies, they are very custom...
