I bought this kite from Lam Hoac. The light-grey was my choice, Lam picked the other colors.

I'm very flabbergasted by this kite!
It is a SUL, but really flies like a standard, very strange.

You're obviously one of those really gifted fliers that can make a kite do anything but I'm amazed that a SUL like that one can do the kinds of things you're doing. I've got a Nirvana SUL (WW) with 2 PTs that I'm afraid to do anything that will break the sticks. And it's got so little mass that it's a major effort to get to pull it into a fade. Amazing!

The sea devil sul flies like a standard a well. I think the weights Lam adds gives it this ability. I know that the sea devil has lead weights in the wing tips. Does the transformer sul have a spectra bridle like the Sea devil?

Stella Plage? I don't know yet...

Thanks for the compliments, people. Maybe I can hit some tricks, but please give Lam Hoac some credit: it is a amazing kite!
Good communication and a fast build!
I'm looking forward to the next flight (only flown it twice now).

A longer (maybe better) movie will follow, no doubt.
And I will be using those soundtracks from the Transformer-movies again, wonderful music!
