The Video "TNT @ Dresden" (posted by Winfre) is flown by me. This track is taken on first flight in bad wind.
When i see this today i shame on it - sploppy style, no precision, ... .  Its not representative for "TNT-style".

The time i had spend with CTC wasn`t enough to be able to compare them - beside the CTC was an vented version.

But i have found an flightreport at "Drachenforum". The guy how worte that had flown CTC an long time even at Trickspartys (Single an Pair) till he changed to TNT.
He refers to TNT std.

(text is translated by an Online translator)
----------------
A sweet one hum resounded about the government quarter of Berlin.
When I noticed that it for a long time had started to dawn, I started to fly tricks (Tilt, circles and forms are able to do such fun ready )

This Kite needs an already very exact little hand, too much free way punished them immediately with DoubleAxl, 1 1/2 Backspins, to disorganised turns, one and a half

YoYos and all kinds of of other slovenliness.
Whether it lay now in the wind, or in my beating technology, after 10 minutes of Eingewöhnung we completely became CLOSE FRIENDS.

Cometé: Slowly rolling, primitively fast or accented stack stack... Stack stack. I have never seen such a thing. The 2nd impulse is small micro, the only minimum stop

it reaches around them obviously to let engage. Besides, the speed of the Kite displays is phenomenal. A small nirvana FX is quick, OK! But of the TNT (2.45m) so

brutally "snap" is able [surprised]

TAZ Machine: Quick, floating, aggressively or slowly controlled - thus easily a lot to me this trick never. If I have gone to trouble *cough*, are there so clarifies

flatspins with out come. Of the dragons picks up (right set-up provided) the nose like a Krystal FX.

YOYOs:without Backup stopper (for it the R-Sky so favoured by me claws) caught every Yoyo and this, with the wind. Multiple YOYOs comes compound from one-and two-pops

till the doctor comes. He wraps extensive than the Cosmic, but not really slow. If one gives him substantially input, one needs only 'nen short interimpulse and it

goes on immediately.
TwoPops properly give pleasure, there is not merely enough my fine motor activity this properly to timen.

YOYO-MultiLazy (back flip) etc.: are from the timing also differently than I of the CTC am used. What I am liked very positively, that not to release so much strength

needed around Lazys one apparently any more. The Floater is nicely controllable, Rollin Cascaden I could fly nicely fast or, however, with long road mattock and slow

releasing of the Lazys.

Fade: (again in comparison to the CTC) It needs to hold some feeling (or better wind than today) around him nice. So solid as the CTC he does not lie. For it things

went for me like Mutex and Backspin Cascade substantially easier from the hand.
Backspins also reach to me rising very easily.

Flic Flac:Hat a little lasted, but I is able to do him again [Biggrins]

YoFade: often overwinds [lol] 2 times held and when Backspin completes.

Slots and Flatspins: flat , fast, floating. Nose often showed so high as if I the wing would do catch, but nothing.

The precision and spurt remorse with I, even with shh. Wind grooves in the horizon pulled, were fantastic. No matter whether Push-Pull or minimum corners (only push)

nirvana Like. I had  a lot if  fun.

All together it is a Kite you cab fly extremely fast and hard , or,  also very softy and fluently can lead by combinations.
I find the Recover behaviour very unusual, Line catching are fast repaired like by mind hand.

Then at 19 o'clock we were quite wet both and the light of the central station did not reach anyhow for a long time any more to fly visually.

Who knows me, knows, I incline to exuberance actions and euphorisierten Postings with weird quintessence. Ick am in love freshly and not everything what here stands

is of the truth [wink]
I did not have to go to comparisons, but on my last 2 dragons all this simply is based what I am able to do. And with 'nem XT.s I cannot compare the TNT thus at all.

And because the separation of the Cosmic is still so fresh, it lies for me near a direct comparison to move.

Thorsten Axmann can fly that's for sure.
