FWIW, I especially enjoy the videos taken from behind the pilot so that, in addition to the kite aerobatics, I can see the inputs making it all happen!

Please, kite makers and videographers, produce more like this one! For those of you who have experience filming video, is it possible to plant the camera on the ground behind the pilot (from a prone position?) and shoot upward? With the proper wide-angle lens, that is a perspective that sounds ideal for a newbie learner like me.

I agree with you, I like the videos shot with a static camera from behind the pilot and a wide angle lens, it helps learning from other pilots and it also helps watching yourself, to discover your own mistakes and wrong moves.
This is one of my videos, filmed from that perspective, you may find it interesting:

I've learned a lot watching Gerardo's videos. He catches the inputs & the kite's results perfectly, and does everything slow & smooth so it makes sense. It is really helpful for anyone who flies alone to see an experienced pilot from this perspective. Actually, any other perspective is useless to me, I can't really tell what's going on, and usually makes me dizzy to watch.

This is my last time out with the camera, trying to get some VF footage. You can see some of my flying inputs in the beginning...

As usual Great Flying.  I am going to study that clip and work on the moves.  I do know that after watching your videos.  I get better.

I filmed that video over seven years ago in Beech Mountain, NC. at the Labor Day kite festival there. I beleive it is the first one I did with my then new  camera. I agree with Ken, the best videos are filmed from the fliers perspective, and it's even better if you can get the hand movements in there to study them. Holding a camera and trying to follow a moving stuntkite is not easy. Then you have to edit down all your footage after that. Both of us are better fliers now, the video I made of me and him flying the Organic kite that I made is more up to date. Just watch Organic kite Video on my youtube channel. I really just made that video for fun, but decided to post it anyway when I created my youtube channel. Glad you liked it,

Very nice .....

It's the Seven std. There was no UL or SUL when I got it. I've been trying to decide on which to get next, I'm leaning towards the SUL. The winds in the video were around 5mph, flown on 25m lines. My favorite trick kite in smooth winds...

The Seven is mots closely related to the Deep Space and the Talon.

The Seven is the biggest kite of the three and arguably the most well rounded.  I own a DS and a Talon and when I picked up the lines of the Seven, I could do all my small trick repertoire without much adjustment. Being bigger, it's a bit slower than the other two so gives you a bit more time to react.  It's much more fade stable than the DS and it's pitchiness is probably mid way between the DS and Talon.  It does sit deeper in a turtle than the other two (but nothing like as deep as something like a Fearless!)

Just so you are aware, despite it's size the Seven's not a precision kite so don't expect to be cutting very square corners.

There is an updated version of the Seven, the 7.5, currently in development, so may be worth waiting if you are seriously thinking about getting one.

Compare the Seven with other kites ? Well, of the kites that I've flown (never flew either a DS or a Talon) I was going to say it's a cross between a Gemini and a Fearless. It's Turtle-happy like a Fearless, but doesn't get stuck on its back like a FL. It flies round turns like a Gem, but doesn't spin as fast. It also like to keep moving like a Gem, one trick to the next. I'll say this.... since getting the Seven, I haven't flown my Fearless or Gemini, and haven't missed them. They were my favorite trick kites previously.
The only shortcoming that I found of the Seven is it's bumpy wind performance. I won't even bother taking it out of the bag if I'm flying inland, which is most of the summer.
