Hey James...
Nice flying... it looks like the Trans SUL is trickier than the Tattoo. Some nice smooth camera work, especially from the strange angle. I'm not used to seeing a kite being flown from anything but the first person perspective.  Cool

It was already about 5 pm when I went out and getting dark so there really wasn't enough time or wind. But my daughter wanted to shoot some video and I wanted to fly so I did what I could. Another 1 mph or so and this thing is a blast and can do lots more. Super nice Cometes, Comete Cascades, Tazes, pretty much any trick and it is a roll up nut too. Anyway, in the video the kite was basically under it's sweet spot as far as the wind speed and I was constantly moving to keep it aloft. I did not measure the wind speed but it was light and wandering around a bit.

The Transformer SUL really is more of an UL than a SUL. It needs more wind than the Fearless SUL Tattoo but feels more like a standard than the Tattoo and it's smaller too so it's easier to toss about.

With a bit more wind, the T SUL is very tricky, not just for a SUL / UL but just plain tricky even compared to most standards. It rolls up snappier than many standards. It has very good control of the tricks and performs them cleanly with a nice look. Just don't expect to fly and trick under say, about 2-2.5 mph without lots of effort. I have no clue what the upper wind range for it is.

Fun, fun, fun, that's how I would sum this kite up.

Peace

I like this video... very peaceful; and I've always like this cover of Tears for Fears.
