Hi Peter, what do you think of user haiku in his videosPeter_Frank wrote: ↑Thu Feb 25, 2021 8:36 pmNem0 wrote: ↑Thu Feb 25, 2021 6:32 pmI learned first flies withmy Onda an 18m Pulsion!
You do not have to care about it in the air!
What about 11m or 13m Peak4?
It stays even longer in the air as Pulsion 18m.
Doesn't work, no peak power, have tried both.
Not really going super low...
But yes, they don't drop, great

I appreciate that the wind is very lighy and there are other advantages to the Peak, but based on this video I would have more confidence using my lightweight closed cell foil kite in these sub 7knot winds.
There is very low gain in low end between pulsion 12 and 15 and now 18. My preference to tje 18m in marginal wind is pleasure to get power and speed under 6 knots. But there is some. I still gain some low end, in the range of 0.5 to 1 knots between 12 m and 18m.joriws wrote: ↑Fri Feb 26, 2021 11:01 amI wonder your drive to 18m kites (with lower aspect) if you are 60-70kg, when I with almost double of your weight and required force impulse to ride I can do my stuff with 15m foil kites (already a couple of generations ago model) in proven light wind **with door-twintip when "LW"-LEI kites cannot climb to zenith**. IMO you don't need 18m kite's impulse to do your HF stuff, actually smaller kite with less fabric weight & air-inside-mass-inertia and easier to achieve higher flying speed and quicker steering with easier-to-fly-arcs would be much better for you maybe with 23-25m lines to create window room kite to accelerate and generate the impulse. My opinion is that 18m is a waste of fabric for "60kg" person, it was already in pre-historic-dinosaur-twintip-era when our local 60kg-kiter with 19m Speed3DLX was saying it is too much force with twintip already for their weight in our famous light winds. I am 110kg and 18m kite is waste of fabric for me.
