Well,

here's one pic of the ILE kite with jet flaps (vented) from one of hobby builders on kite-stuff.org.

Well, you can read here what did Jazz get from them... or read on FS site, whos introduced them on kites as far as I know.

Yepp, I don't know if Flysurfer was first with using them but they've had Jetflaps on all of their waterkites since the Titan. The Jetflaps present on the their newest Speed2 are something like 6:th or 7:th generation of this concept. They work pretty good indeed. :thumb:

You can see them near the TE on the picture above.

Toby - there was a quite long upwind race but it was held on the Saturday and the wind was very light. The smallest kite used was a 16m and most were on bigger kites with many people not able to finish. The only 2 vented kites we had at the event were 12m 2008 Rise kites as we expected more wind! Sunday the wind picked up though and Jeremie was able to show off his skills with the new kite and we were able to get a number of people out on demos with it.

We were stoked to have Jeremie on hand to help with the unofficial unveiling of this kite last weekend at Windfest 07, he was able to perfectly show what this kite is capable of!

Indeed, this has been a proven concept with foil kites which is exactly why we are so excited to introduce them on the new 2008 Inflateable Leading Edge kites from Ocean Rodeo. I predict that we will see a number of kite companies follow this trend.

Well, if you checked the link that I've posted above, it was introduced/tested on ILE roughly 2 years ago...

Still, nice to see that someone found benefit in them... hope all goes well!

I wonder when someone will "introduce" artificial feathers on ILE kites, like FS on some ot their designs... :roll:

Here is a close up of one of the vents, as I have more photos submitted I will put them up. We paid a professional photographer to shoot the event for us and will have these photos in the office in the next couple days.

Guess ya didn't have any speed2-19's over there on race day? If I'd a known about it I'd a busted outa race re-tire-ment, buzzed over in my personal heli and given it a run-for-the-money.

Is that webing under the flap?
Is that black strip past the vent dacron?
Any more reviews?

It looks like a bit of mesh so that the air can pass through. I'm guessing its required to make sure the canopy maintains is overall shape.

And just shows as always the quality of the OR build of kites. Serious about making their kites tough where they can take the knocks - mine definitely have. Many other companies should take a lesson on building kites like OR.
