It's not just me, is it ? Those kites aren't the same size as each other.

Well, if it's you, then it's also me .... Meaning the grey one appears clearly bigger to me as well.

There was a 10' version for light winds called the Windrule. Is this one ?

Its probably the same size depth of field makes them look different. Sizes

The gray one looks larger to me. It also looks to have a slightly different cut to the trailing edge.

There was also a 3/4 size called the Extreme or something. I saw it as a progressive stack also but near the end there was a shot that looked like they were same size, so I'm not sure. It wasn't just you, it seemed very obvious at first then it became more confusing.

I don't think it works. Like that.

Here it's the most distant kite and yet....

Well there's a bit of perspective happening in many of the shots, backgrounds cause optical illusions, lens distortion if it's a wide angle (but it doesn't seem to be that wide) your shot with the kites rotated and lined up show the back kite as smaller. Not arguing with you I saw it too, but many things play tricks on our eyes.

Make sure U watch in 1080p... makes them look the same (more) to me.... Nice looking kites... the second one (white causes the optical illusion.  the tips are black hidden at times to other black kite.... ( what the he** do I know) :D

The windrule is bigger....and as far as i could find only came with a grey background and rainbow stripes......
but i am not certain if that is one....the stack sure is beautiful though.....

I agree. The last kite of the stack looks like a 10' Windrule (kite used sometimes by Aircraft in competition by very low winds). Same panels, same colors.

I thought Windrule when I saw the video, but it doesn't look big enough. Odd.

Yes, mike is correct.
The grey one is larger then the other 2 and it is Windrule. ;)

Yes.  Windrule was a 10 foot wingspan kite.  I still have a marketing ad for it somewhere.
