I've flown this little Ginga only in light wind in the past, but today gave it a go in a fairly strong breeze. Big Fun!
In light wind it is a very active, involved glider, loads of spinny fun, keeps you on your toes.
The Ginga has been called a gliding fighter, and in strong wind this "travel size" version is much more like a fighter, but one that pancakes and spins when given sudden slack. Most fighters this size get stable in a strong breeze. They get hard to turn. High wind fighters tend to be small and very fast. The extreme bow in the Ginga makes for a kite with a fairly slow forward speed in wind, but with the ability to pancake and spin for quick changes in direction.
Next time out I'm going to tweak on the bridle a bit to see if I can get more traditional fighter like spin to go with the glider-like pancake.
This is a really great, unusual, little kite. Very robust, as can be seen in the pictures, it's a great fly anywhere kite.
I think Windswept Kites still has some.
