Does an SUL Crow exist at 250 euros? It looks and moves like the Tattoo. I like ... but in SUL?

The "LW" (Light Winds) goes down like Cosmic Ghost, TNT Zero, Veyron SUL and handles UL Wind good too...but it is not finished all the way yet...I only need the LW and STD in trickflyable winds...maybe I will work on a heavy version someday...price will be the same !

Post by: asburyparkjohn on August 06, 2012, 02:12 PM
So from your post the LW version is not ready yet. If its ready I would be willing to give your kite a try as every time I see your video it reminds me a Fearless or a Tattoo. I have flown the Cosmic Ghost but did not like it as the variable knots were too confusing and as some pilots have indicated in the end you wind up back at the standard settings. I feel the kite itself was well done but the bridle type was a failure. Not sure if that has changed any - I sold it after (3) months of exhaustive experimenting two years ago. Great Multi -Lazies ... not doubt there. Never tried the TNT Zero but I here only good things of this kite ... just never bumped into it at a kite venue ...

...all Kites have Icarex PC31, a size of 215x95cm, different postion of lower spreader and bridle settings !
...the performance maximizes, when the kite gets older and the trailing edge wrinkles !

Beware...kites have no trailing edge line to tension, so they make much noise when wind is up !

I have buyed from Peter Maternus (PAW) a The Crow Senior LW and a The Crow Senior STD+ last weekend.

I flew the LW in very poor wind-conditions and was impressed by the kite's abillity to perform tricks in this situation.

The quality of the kites is impressive. Very tricky design-solutions which are selected by a kite-maker with long-year reputation in trick-party and STACK in Europe.

If you look for a modern kite with features you can't find within the established kites go for The Crow!
