One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.

Is there anyone who has a R-Sky Krystal FX (KFX) standard ?

I've read a few reviews about it in french forums, but it doesn't seem to be well known in North America.
So I'd like to know if anybody has one (or tried one at least a few hours)
If so.... what would you have to say about this kite?

I already saw the review on Kite clique. (think it's the only one in english I've found)

... and regarding the sale on Drachenforum... how could I say this.. hum... My deutsch ist nicht gut!
I didn't understand everything, but I believe it's mainly a description of the kite and it's condition.

.. still looking for different opinions about it...

If so.... what would you have to say about this kite?
A good, fun kite that benefits from slipping in stiffer spars. Eminently spankable. Thrashtastic. Have a double espresso before flying or you won't keep up.

A more nuanced review ("I noted some reticence in the early transition phases of cross-axial rotation...."  Roll Eyes ) really isn't appropriate for this sort of kite. You put some lines on, chuck it at the sky and bang it about. It'll put a smile on the face of anyone prepared to give it a go.

I had a KFX LW - amazing kite, I think, overall, my favorite R-SKY.  I've always wanted to try the WW which looks very capable.

Another one in a long line of kites that, looking back, I should not have sold.
