|Fazer XXL by HQ Video|
|(1/2) > >>|
A quick movie (1080p HD option pickable) made by Britt, Bambi and myself.
Kite on loan by the sponsor at right:
A Wind Of Change Kites
Cool. I think with a little bit of playing, that thing can get pretty serious. It looked like it had some pretty decent speed for being such a huge kite. Maybe 15mph winds would really get it rockin'.
i think it looks a heck of a lot better at 120'!!!
does it get faster based on the settings? Thought it was primarily a speed kite?
The earlier portion of the video had the bridle set heavy for speed.
The later video had the upper inhaul shortened about 4 inches.
I had added one knot to the upper adjustment, so the speed setting
I was using was probably 3/4" "friendlier & slower" than the stock setting.
The kite becomes much more digital the heavier you go
(flying fast or stalled, nothing in-between). The kite was going faster
than it appeared in the video. It is almost 12 feet across.
Also, on the tricks portion, I was using 85' x 175 lb lines.
The kite must pull like a Peterbilt when the winds get to 15 mph.
But, it is not going to fly in 1 Beaufort as the literature states
that the fun begins at that point. I'd say 10 mph minimum if you want
the thrill stuff. YMMV
