Speaking of Skyburner prototypes... what happened to the 10 footer from last year's Kite Party ? At first, before I read this, that's what I was hoping this post was about. Sorry to digress from the Aura, which also sounds like a kite I'd like to try. But talk of a 10 foot trickable kite really gets my blood pumping.  Undecided

Rob, the "SXL" is basically something thats kind of on the fence of production from what I understand. I'd send Jon and email as ask, it wouldn't hurt.
Hey Devin,
I thought I saw pictures of you flying it at KP last year, and just figured you were in on the development of it. I have a good time flying the Firestorm, but am always worried about breaking it. A 10 foot kite made to Skyburner's standard of quality would remove that worry, and I would guess 10 years of newer kite technology might not hurt, either. Once more people saw what a blast it is to trick a BIG kite, I think the idea might really take off...

Hey Rob,
Trust me you will noottttt break that kite haha. Big honkin' sticks in there. I've tried to break it honestly, and I couldn't. Which is nice (and kind of upsetting in a way) because I can break about 2 or 3 nitros in a week if I'm flying hard usually. One day...  Cheesy

Yeah, Devin, I've heard that you fly it 'like you stole it'...  Cheesy

That's really good news about the durability, and just makes me really want to fly that big wing even more.

Well, I wish you success in your musical pursuits, and hopefully you get back to the important business of kite flying soon !

Which Aura stayed in Vegas.  I was picking the "Spider".   Grin Grin Grin Grin

John brought out his new Aura "spider" to the Friday Night Fly.

A SUL night (Aura, Interspace and Amazing) with no lights Sad 

Its a smaller SUL that tricks like a good UL. Only got about 10 minutes flying time. So no kind of review. Just enought flying time to know that Devin and Skyburner have a winner.  Grin

Looking foward to adding one to my kite bag when they go into production  Cool

Hi, I went to look in Skyburner's web site and I see it still does not appear.
Any idea of when it is going to be commercialized and at what price?

In my bag...
Duals: NoName (NoBrand), Nexus (Prism), Soul (Flying Wings), Talon UL (JoE), LeQuartz (own build), Illusion Classic (Prism), Aura SUL custom (Skyburner), Sixth Sense STD (Krijn)
Singles: Conyne STD (my design)
