I've had this kite for awhile now and have really grown to like it.  Here's some footage of a fun flying session on a nice day.

How about that... The E3 can actually make a downward turn without crashing.  Tongue Tongue

Hmm I thought it could......... Wink

Contrary to other beliefs.......................... Tongue

Very Nice Work Dave Cool

Ace...
You're missing the fact that this E3 has the bridle modifications made to it. Dave was one of the pioneers with the E3, and helped to come up with the mods that make the E3 fly a little more normal.

True enough, Must86 Smiley

A slight mod for better rotations at the expense of precision.. nothing wrong with that.

But I very much doubt the E3 will crash at evey downward turn in its stock configuration.

Bit much don't you think Wink

Appreciate the comments, guys Wink
The kite is actually easy to do a more controlled flapjack with. I just think its so fun to hit it hard and send it into the air a few feet.  I really enjoy the kite's rowdy tendencies.

Hey Ace,
No, I think it was an exageration to make a point. I have to say that the first time I attempted a downward turn with my E3, it was a hair-raising experience. I'm used to the way most Prism kites fly, I have most of the ones worth flying. The ( stock ) E3 is a big departure from the way the rest of them fly. It takes hours of getting used to, or hours of test & tune with the bridle to get it to handle with a familiar feel.
I chose the familiar feel, and am very happy with the way the kite flies now. Maybe some of us are just more resitant to change...
