You have a Fearless, so why do you even care?   Tongue

I haven't flown one, but a lot of guys at my flying spot use TNT's in various configs, and it looks to be pretty precise and tricks like mad. The listed windrange is also realistic.

The listed wind range for the TNT STD is 6km to 30km but there is no info. on the UL.  I would say this is a very interesting kite. Do u know where to get one ?

Those folks sell them: (commercial link removed) , just throw Heiko a email and will most certainly help you.
The UL goes pretty far down, i would say about 2-3 mph from watching folks fly them at those conditions,
but then with enough work anything can been flown indoors Smiley

Yeah, but the kite selling is a side job for both. They have a normal job mainly.
Throw me your email and i will try to get Heiko to get in contact with you?
