hi guys
as you know i have paid and being sent in the mail as we speak a sky burner pro dancer,blk in color with orange sow stitching,it looks cool!
but i have heard it has very limitatations on what it can do and not do as far as tricks!
i dont mind too much though just as long as it flies in nearly no wind conditions!
so what is it capable of doing ?

Oh this is a sore subject.
Most people will tell you the pro dancer is good at axels.

I disagree. Any flat spin based maneuver it will do, with a little love. Taz's and backspins included. Stalls and slides are a dream, tipstabs are dynamic with its wingtip TE design. Great kite.

well update:
just set her up and flew her for the first time today on 100ft lines!
wind range on wind meter was betweeen 2-4 mphr winds coming from the sth west.
the sails flutter noise a bit,but she floats well,well balanced,smooth responsive flyer,capable of doing loops,lol.
flew her for 1/2 hr.
she floats down nice to sit her back on her back ready to fly again!
rob sparkie member will post some pics of me me soon of her.
oh and as you guys said you cant see the orange sow stitching work lol,but looks good up close! Smiley
i must say the black color looks cool and easy to view/see while flying!!
cheers

Best part, is like the Niknak, you will be flying the PD  in low wind when everyone else is on the ground.

i think in lighter winds that 75 ft of line might be more better and enjoyble than 100 ft of line dont you think with this pro dancer ?

im very happy to have a pro dancer that i can take out in nearly no wind and get sone enjoyment out of!
