History says after a video like this not long. I would guess a month or 2, but then China is going through some interesting times right now.

I'm going for the 13m ; i'll be figuring out how to tune it, on land with a kite buggy.
I enjoy a good puzzle ; and it's cheap enough that i won't be bummed if things
don't go well.

It looks good, not weird like the last one, more like the Sonic VR or other race kites. How it flys well we will just have to wait for vids and reports. I am sure many would like if Pansh just lived up to the insinuations and copied good kites. A near exact copy of every kite in Flysurfer's range at 1/3 the price would sink most of the industry. Hell if any competent brand like Flysurfer went direct and gave everyone dealer prices at 1/2 they would sink most of the industry or at least force them to compete.

Wow, that kite looks very very good! I didn't notice any suspicious flying characteristics and kite shape looks balanced both in plan shape and canopy curve. Wing is smooth and clean. So far this looks like a big step forward for Pansh :clap: :clap:

Very interesting to see more detailed information of kite and how the pricing will be.

Looks like they are basing it on the R1.

I like the white, maybe with less stripes. 2 would be nice. They should rename it the Ghost.

59 cells. I'd prefer a bit more canopy curve and slightly lower AR

R1 is different, it has lower cell count, different inner structure and different bridle.

On YT now

cell count corrected

I count 59 cells. The pic with them flying overhead looks like different arcs. It does look higher AR than the R1 in the video below. It seems competitive. It should make racing more affordable. I wonder if the Chinese racers will be on these?

Thanks for the correction, 59 cell it is, so it is same as R1 has and it is still plenty. AFAICS it is not a copy of R1, bridle and inner parts (which I don't see) are different. Aeolus has also miniribs, R1 doesn' have any.

Aeolus looks so good only thing I'm worried is handling, is it close enough for brand kites. Performance must be of high level.
