Firstly I will apologise in advance for what I am sure will be a
frequently repeated question... But here goes!
What recommendations are there for an outdoor very light wind kite (0+
km/h)? I've been searching for comments on the Flashlight and the Ozone
and I guess it seems to come down to personal preference...
I'm not really a trick flyer (at least not intentionally) but have a
fair amount of experience with kiting. I currently have a 3.6m Peel,
Pocket Peel, Windancer 1 2000, and two fairly high end stunt kites
(locally made). I'm now looking at finding something for the lower end
of the wind scale...
Unfortunately being in Perth, Western Australia I will not have the
chance of flying before I buy, so I'm relying on all you guy's and
gal's for enough feedback to help make a more informed choice...
That's the No Wind problem, now for the Too Much Wind problem... Can
anyone recommend any quick release harness systems for power kiting. In
Perth, it's not uncommon to get a pretty strong breeze (25-30+ km/h)
most afternoons in summer, enough to pull me (110kg) around with my
3.6m Peel. Unfortunately with this sort of breeze, I can usually only
fly for about 15-20 minutes before my arms are about twice their normal
length (not to mention the pain in my wrists). A harness or something?
is my only hope (with safety being a number one priority).
Sorry for the long posting... Many thanks in advance and hope to hear
from everyone out there!
