one snowkite session of the Pulsion 12m on a very light wind day (say 2 to 5 knots approx ) with my back-to-back test of 3 different settings (camber variations from the setting knots) : I detail since comments are written in French :
from flatter camber first ( high winds setting ) to high camber ( low wind setting : more power , quicker turn, better hang in less wind but less stable without bar input) and then finally exaggerated high camber (beyond the standard settings , i.e. A directly connected on front line connection point);



the exagerated camber was very interesting in snowkite for its impressive lift and agility, but not in Hydrofoil (higher drag , low speed and lateral pull, less stable).
