At the beach and certainly inland we all face in the early morning, dusk or after a rain storm those VERY low wind periods. From my experience the Tattoo has always been a great low wind flyer just flying in winds just above an indoor stunt kite like the Benson Inner Space (BIS).
Very rarely have I flown the BIS outdoors but on occasion for an hour until the wind picked up it was a good choice. We always argued what would be the best low wind flyer and sometimes younger pilots can move around more with their feet so its always a discussion that is very difficult to pinpoint on what fly's say very well in 1-2 mph based on your marker at the beach or inland (i.e., For me its the American flag on the Asbury Park Convention Center and Weather.Com).
When I ordered the Mind Trick at 2PT construction (i.e., a higher construction build design than the original design - slightly) as I said I was amazed on its solid feel and construction yet its free flowing versatility through all the tricks. I then asked myself what would happen if you COMBINED the low weight loftiness feel of the Tattoo with the solid feel construction of the Mind Trick dual kite = Triple S (my name).
My suggestion to Lam was to combine this very low wind classic Tattoo in terms if its overall weight and airborne capabilities with the solid feel of his new Mind Trick. As most people who talk to Lam he always likes to boast (rightfully so IMO) how wide a wind window his kites can fly in for a particular model (i.e., his Light/Vented version kites being a good example) and of course this is a good thing but I did mention to him this time just focus the kite at 0.5-4 mph and realize it will be fragile above this wind range and its really something just for the experienced pilot flying near ZERO WIND. But also incorporate the solid feel of the Mind Trick. Hence what I call his NEW Triple S.
We shall see ... in some ways maybe this is the greatest challenge to a kite builder = incorporating a durable design and a compact feel to a kite with a very very low overall weight.
Still in design but near completion and soon to be tested. Simply put with the BIS and Tattoo I never left the beach until I decided it was time to leave ... never ... never due to low wind. Whatever ...
