I would not get the light speed, but the other one that its not so high aspect.
Pedro, Why would you prefer the more low aspect kite?
The main goal for me is to have a fast LEI kite that stays in the air in weak conditions. It should also be a bit more easy/safe to self land than a strutless.
I would also prefer the higher AR kite, as it would be better in marginal winds, everything else being equal, more power when flown or ridden fast.
But it is not (equal), apparently it has huge windrange, jumps like crazy and awesome upwind - but on cost of low end grunt.
Not the AR itself, but other design parameters (profile).
It turns a lot slower, THIS is because of the AR no matter if better otherwise in general, so should also be taken into consideration.
One strut or strutless, can see absolutely no difference in terms of landing (I have both).
When you say "fast" what do you mean Anders ?
In native English fast implies "fast turning".
In other languages (ours t.ex), fast means fast (forward) flying.
These two parameters are almost mutually exclusive, if you have one you lose the other
