Very impressive, sure like the simple sail design too. So how much work is it to fly? It doesn't appear you were struggling with it but we never saw the pilot in the video, how exagerated are the arm movements? Yes some details on the kite would be interesting, framing, sail material, etc.

The sail design - layout and colors - is my own. The Shape is an upscaled version of an commercial kite  - you know it well, Denny  Wink

The "original" dosen`t pull hard, so this 120% version dosen`t pull hard too. I always fly with 2 finger straps....  Up to 10-12mph it`s no struggle to fly this Kite. I have to move more, but thats everthing.
If the windcondions like at the video (2-5 mph),  i don`t have to row - for that you have to know that i`m 1,92 meter ( 6.3 Ft ?) tall. Out of memory i would say that the inputs, way and intsensity, are similar to the Transfer Xt.r, but it pulls a lot less. Tricks like the Taz or Yoyo need every Time a good setup/timing and footwork.

The Kite at the video is framed by P300 LE, Nitro Strong spreader and P 400 Spine. The current frame is different, i`ve chanced the LE into tapered rods. So it is more balanced. The tail weight is round about 20 gr + 10 Euro Cents.

Im sure that there are language mistakes. So, if there is something mistakable, ask.

A potentially explosive admission that, Dirk. Cheesy

Very impressed with the trickability of a kite that size.

I'd assumed it was based on the kite in Denny's avatar.

Probably best I hang me head in shame at my lame attempt at humour.  Embarrassed

Spectacular ! Some nice, smooth, slow motion flying. Maybe it's the size of the kite, but you can really see what's going on. This video is going to help me figure out a few things...
Thanks !

You`r right, it' s based up on Dennys Avatar.
Humour is allways fine.  I only thought i`ve stir up a hornets' nest, or it would be an runnig gag that i don`t know.

No worries Dirk. Your English is better than my German, and I grew up speaking German.  Sad
