Thanks Tom thats some nice flying. I saw a few other 4D videos on youtube as well and it surpassed my initial preconception of what it can do. Its on my wanted list for a while now.
Just curious, have you tried to JL it? Is it remotely possible by any chance?
Thanks guys! This is the kite that I won in VF16.
I was very surprised what the kite can do - more capable than I would have thought. I only fly it in little to no wind (<1), but I'm glad that I have it for that. The kite can also be flown indoors - we were playing with it this year at Seaside and some of the flyers enjoyed it to some of their other indoor kites.
It will JL, but not very reliably, at least for me. So far, I have only been able to get 2 rungs on it. The issue I have is in the 1/2 backspin backspin to turtle - the kite settles very slowly making it more difficult and breaking the flow of the trick. I have heard that adding 2 grams on the tail helps this out, but I have not tried that. This kite is basically stock - I set the bridle to 3 point and then moved the nose (AoA) back about 1/4 inch or so. It's a fun kite to fly - everything I did in this video is pretty easy in low wind once you adjust to the nature of the kite.
