Re: So why are C-Kites discontinued?

Re: So why are C-Kites discontinued?

Just curious, are they replaced by hybrids? Are they too dangerous? Are they too much fun? There is no market for C kites, compared to all other types. C kites has: Less windrange.

Re: dimitri when are we getting our megaloop tutorial video
