Here’s a link to a video of me flying the Albatross Firefox:

It was very gusty and was tricky to keep it from flying strait into the ground.

Nice, I love my BIG kites. I've been looking for a Thor's Hammer for years, but just can't find one for an agreeable price. Of course, I'd like to get it in blue, too, which is harder to find. I have a few 10' wings that are fun to fly, but I try to only fly them in lower winds....

Nice, nice stuff guys. Can't figure out which kite looks best so it's a 3 way tie. Slides always look so cool but on big kites it goes up a notch.

Whangdoodle with inflating leading edges.

Surprisingly tricky for its size and age.

I have a beast at 9 ft and a California condor at 13 ft.
Would love to have a hammer but prices have been too high

These aren't mine, but are certainly large framed dual line sport kites. Wingspans of 9 and 12 metres.

Like to see an axel on these, eh?

Full screen please, and crank 'er up.

RobB- That is a nice kite. I'd add the Skyburner XXL to my collection

chilese- the Whangdoodle is not far behind the Skyburner

DD-Lets see some pictures of your Beast and California Condor

midibot- Those Wolsing kites defiantly deserve a spot here! I love how graceful the 12M looks when it flies!

Here's my Thor's Hammer compared to my Firefox. (I'll Get a better picture when I get Thor's Hammer out to fly!)

thief- To be fair to all, each kite owner has his/her own preferences, So each owner likes his/her own kite. This was not started to judge the kites, but to admire all the large framed dual line sport kites.

This is my 100Fifty, a scaled up version from the 90Three. It is 150% Smiley
It is a low wind trickkite, built it myself. Wingspan is 336cm (and I've got no clue how much feet that is, haha!).





Here together with the 80% version of the 90Three (which is 180cm):




Still planning to make a video, be patient.
