Alright, I have to ask this now.

The ATM looks great, yes. However in literally every video I've seen the kite looks like it struggles big time getting out of a backflip (turtle) from either a multi lazy, cynique, or anything of the sort. JL's of course are a different story, because of their different exiting maneuver.

Geroge can you shed some light on this? Maybe Tom Patterson as well?

Like the kite, and the pilots great, but the kite just doesn't seem to like leaving its home on its back. Any honest info would be more than appreciated! Looking great up there.

Pretty amazing stuff Jorge. I can't believe that you have picked up the cynique and now the yo fade so quickly - quite remarkable!

Devin,

From my perspective, there are no turtle exit issues with the ATM.  You can see my video around 6:00 where I multi lazy to straight exit and it looks struggle-free at least to me.

It is a turtle based kite however which I think is one reason why it tricks so easily and reliably.  I have flown kites where the turtle tendency is so strong that it makes 2 point landings, for example, more challenging, but that is not the case with the ATM.

It tracks like the Sea Devil, but tricks like a cross between Fearless and Transformer in that it gives you lots of input time like the Fearless, but is not as locked-in turtle wise.  So, it likes to be on it's back,but does not insist on it. 

Hope this helps.

Sometimes you have to readjust your inputs. I'm in that process now.  I love my ATM . It's a great kite. The only down side I have are the fades. Unless you have a nice smooth winds it's hard to keep it.


Thanks.

Very nice flying Jorge, You only have the kite for short time and already do stuff that many people can not do. Keep up the awesome job my friend. Thank you for the video. Happy flying and look ahead of you always Smiley Cheer.

Have a great day !

Thanks to everyone for your comments.

In my next video, I'll look forward to show how the ATM tracks. It's not all about tricks with the ATM. Have to wait for better weather conditions.

Always love your videos Jorge.

Now I just wish I could put one together even close to that. I will keep trying though. The Fade had eluded me until this weekend where i got a couple good ones.  I may try my Zephyr(which I have 1+years on)side by side with the ATM New Years Day just to see if I can hold it with the Z any better.  I doubt it, but it's worth the experiment.

The tracking really is good on the ATM, especially considering its trick potential.

Thank You Tom.

I'm also waiting for New Years Day to go out and Fly.

Slack line tricks is just about practicing and having fun. I've been there too. Holding a fade for 4-5 seconds and I was so proud of it.

What tricks do you manage?

Hi DD:

It Was 3-8 mph at the first part of the video. At the Last Part where I did the yo-fade went down to 2-4 mph

Thank You Tom.

What tricks do you manage?

I can do most all the basics now (yoyo, fade, JL, landings, backspin, slots, insane, etc) as well as the comete and I learned the taz this last year.  Still working on the left hand comete and I can sort of taz on the left side now.  Also, since getting the ATM, I can now cynique, but we'll see how that translates to my other kites!  Smiley  It doesn't seem to stress the ATM like it does other kites, so I have been inclined to work on it much more.  I also seem to enjoy straight-out sharp precision flying a lot these days.

I haven't worked on the yo-fade and some of the other more advanced tricks yet.   

My priority for now is:
- taz on the left and then taz cascades
- comete clockwise and then comete cascade


Thanks,
-Tom

Hi Tom:

I'm more less at the same level you are. Still working on the comete.  Taz are easier on the right side. Working my left side now. I can pull some crazy copters and wap do waps but not always come out right. As for presition am creating a routine. Have most of it memorized. Let's see how that one comes out.

Nice video and great flying Jorge!!!

I'm more less at the same level you are. ...

I personally think Tom is much more advanced.  See his ATM SUL video and his kite review:
