Thanx,

And yes Fidelio, definitely a new camera, maybe I should hold off on the next kite for a camera...hmm... Undecided
If I find myself a camera-man (or woman), and hope winds are nice, I'll do a VF entry.  Cool

PAW, still working on that mutex; my left hand (right side approach) is almost non-existent Sad I'll get it clean looking one day  Cool

Sweet looking Ocius, and great flying.   The Ocius and the Solus are going to be my next two kites.  Just don't know which one first! Roll Eyes

Some nice flying, DC !

I have been really impressed with my Widow Maker, and thinking about the Ocius, especially the SUL. I wonder if all the Sky Burner kites have the same neutral forgiving characteristics... Because it is a smaller kite, does it move really fast, or is that just the windspeed in the video ? Slower is certainly better for me, I need all the time I can get to think about what I'm doing ! Like the previous post, I am considering the Solus and the Ocius.

If you want slower, go for either the Solus UL/Std, or the Ocius UL. The standard "CAN" move pretty quick, the SUL is very slow with some differing inputs, and the UL is a slower speed with the inputs of the standard (about 90% the same) with a slower trick pace. All 3 kites can handle a wicked amount of wind in the Upper Range. I've flown my standard to 25, my UL to about 17, and my SUL in 11.

Some food for thought  Smiley

Yellow main paneled Ocius? Cool

Without looking up close, my gold Ocius would look just like your yellow...haha  Grin

@Rob, if you notice @0:32 the kite was moving at a nice pace across. Then at 3:19, the kite blazed in quick. Despite how much of a challenge it is to fly a kite that moves so much faster, getting use to it can have some benefits; you gotta learn to keep on your toes and react faster, recognize positions of the kite to go from one trick to the next. Be able to tug and slack the instance you see that specific spot.

Then I went to a slower moving and slower tricking kite, and I screwed myself over  Embarrassed  Huh  Cry
Eventually I got myself to get the hang of it again, and was able to go back n forth no problem.

Nice kite and some very nice flying!  Where do you usually fly?  I moved to Marin County earlier this year and have yet to come across somebody who can do more than a circle followed by a pile driver  Cheesy

I have a reasonably good camcorder by now, and _much_ better editing software.  How about a common video project?  Your Ocius and my Talons would sure look good together.  PM me if interested.  Grin

Gosh Don, you're really good at this stuff! I can't wait to finally meet you-- it's bound to happen one of these days, eh?
