I built this a while back.  It hasn't gotten it's time in front of the camera until now.  Currently one of my favorite kites to fly.

Nice looking kite.
I've really liked all the Derefat designs I've built.

Nice of you to say.  AKA_MrBill has a pretty extensive Vortex build here: http://www.gwtwforum.com/index.php?topic=6449.0

He uses much of my B'zar 2011 build thread for reference, but also throws in some of his own ideas and techniques.  very good photos.
