Just a preview of my new kite. Based on the Sixth Sense, the Supernova is a little smaller and faster with different frame size and ballasts distribution. Hope you like it, this is his first flight.

She's a real beauty, and I love the colors. Great flying, I like it when people trick slowly enough for my sluggish mind to comprehend Shocked

Dare I ask if you will be making these plans public?  (Not that I don't already have a big enough to-do list...)

Me too ...except I'm pretty much all caught up my kite-building plans ...so a new model by David @ Kite E.E.sign would be a joy!

By the way David ...I really like my new 6th 85%ers! Nice flying and good loking design on the Supernova!  Wink

Yes Davide, I also would love to understand the features of the Supernova that make it different from the original SS and the SS85.  Excited about another build from your studio, especially since this kite uses an extremely similar sail pattern I had seen you create for the SS using Mylar!

Looks much more of a heavily weighted, deep turtle kite to me.

I actually thought it looked as though Davide was still tuning into the timing required for the Supernova as his flying didn't seem as smooth as in his other videos (particularly the sixth sense ones). YMMV. Wink

I'm happy you like my kite. Differentes between Sixth Sense and Supernova are:

- A little smaller sail (95%)
- Different frame size and ballast distribution
- Different bridle, i'm testing a turbo revers
- Lich line
- Different and bigger renfouncement
- Center T a little higher

It is 238 wing spam, in flight it is a little faster and tricks like yoyo and flat rotation are more easyer. It is a prototype yet and when i'll finish it the project will be for free like my other kites.

Best regards and sorry for my english.

Looking forward to the Supernova Davide! I can't imagine your designing a kite that I will not like flying!  Wink

Davide, can you confirm the wingspan again please?  95% reduction should make it approximately 228cm rather than 238cm as you stated previously.  I would love the Supernova if it is fact 228cm!  Thank you!
