Bump, has battens on the leading edge, d ribs, h ribs, and a ton of cells. That 20m ultralight looks sweet.

There is a lot of inner structures in Aero, it looks quite a alot like R1V2. Cell counts are high and different to each size, this tells there has been serious design work. But of course nowadays it is quite fast to design different configurations.

The bridle looks ok, but at the wingtips I see some long lines which could have been avoided. Lenghts in primary, secondary and tertiary levels are not quite right to me but this is not very essential and differencies are small for how I would have done it.

Aero looks good and competitive race kite. I'm looking forward to test it.

From the low-res photos I have seen so far projected AR seems to be between 5.9 (7m) and close to 6.3 (17m). This is similar to the Sonic 2 and Diablo 2, lower than Elfs, but higher aspect than Ozone R1v2: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0

I have a 9m, have not had much wind or it has been too stormy with our main riding spot melting out already (two months earlier than normal, last year this time we were getting 30" powder dumps) so haven't had a real day to test it yet. Hopefully will get it out at one of the higher elevation spots above 12,000 ft soon where there is still slushy snow if it ever stops storming every afternoon and we get decent wind. Weight on the 9m standard edition (not ultralight) is less than the weight advertised online for the 9m sonic 2.

We received a great review about the Peter Lynn Aero 14m. One of the test pilots made a extensive review.
