this is a pretty big deal.grigorib wrote: ↑Sun Sep 01, 2019 1:29 amI personally didn’t like increasing apparent wind pull of foil kites - I need less power when going, not more. And I like to be able to loop on a tack or downloop on a jibe so I really need a quick turning kite.
If you’re looking for upwind - probably foil kites would come out winners, but it has also to do with high AR and sitting at the edge of the window
The fast turning which you mention in that video at 1.10 isn't a "regular" turn, it's a stalled turn. So one side of the kite is stalled and flying backwards. This isn't the way the kite turns normally unless it's forced to do it... and I don't really see a benefit.
