i need to be convinced that vantage is a game changer, so convince me....................
It's a very nice kite, but I wouldn't say it's a game changer in any way. If ever this method of designing leads to revolutionary designs, then that will probably also take some development cycles to fine-tune all the tools.
It would be great to learn your experiences on flight modes and which ones do you use the most and for what
Etc. do you get bigger air on big air or freestyle mode, maybe X mode ?
which mode do you find best for looping and how does it feel in comparison with other kites ?
I tried all the settings, and I like the big air setting most. My experience:
- Compared to the big air setting, the freestyle setting has more bar pressure and the kite turns more slowly. Did not like the way the kite loops and the high bar pressure felt a bit tiresome to me.
- Nice thing about the freestyle setting is that you feel even better where the kite is and are less prone to make steering mistakes.
- I tried the wave setting one day, no traction at all. Had a hard time getting upwind, but this was also because I was in the low end of the kite and because the current was downwind.
- Wave setting had a little bit more drift, but nothing spectacular. Kite turns amazingly fast though. I really liked the wave riding in cross conditions, I think it's not amazing for onshore wind.
Big air setting is a bit inbetween concerning bar pressure and turning speed.
