Love the panel layout and color scheme. Very nice flying.
The panel scheme was designed by Mario, as well as the kite itself. The colors, instead, were chosen by a girl I am dating with
(she is an artist)
Nice layout but the response seems a bit sloppy and unbalanced. I assume your still tuning though or the wind wasn't that good so it will probably get better. Looked like the wind was a bit too low in a few shots. Over all it looks promising.
The wind was not stable, in some moment the strenght was dropping, in others It was reinforcing (storms nearby) and, yes, I'm still tuning it. Actually some things are already changed respect to the version in the video, such as standoff lenght (the inner standoff is longer now and is made from fiberglass), some bridle adjustments and connector position trimming.
The kite is very prone to nose-in-line tricks as yofade and crazy copter, despite being tail-heavy (taz-ish). The dimensions are small, it is 215 x 97 but it doesn't act as a small kite on the lines, the trajectory precision is quite good but corners require a little bit of effort to be nice and clean, the fiberglass improved them a lot though indeed. The pressure is gentle but present. A little on the low side for aggressive flying in the low end of the wind range. Comparing to other kite I own and built, the slot machines are more prone to line tangling; that's probably due to the depth of the sail and the tail-heavy (ish) attitude of the kite. The other tricks are easy-peasy.
On a side note I saw the SKD logo and got you mixed up with Sport Kite Designs at first until I actually read your company name. Might be something for you to consider.
I know that is a company with the same acronym, but actually the logo is different and the name too. That's why I put the logo on the whole video
