Any size Peak will fly towards the edge of the apparent wind window in three knots.
It really is that simple.
As long as you have enough power to get going, and don't exceed the speed limit, you're golden.
If you exceed the speed limit, the kite can abruptly stop working, but it will let you know what's going on as long as you approach with a bit of caution.
The speed limit is always windspeed minus three knots with a Peak, but only if you wish to travel straight downwind and experience true drifting magic.
A bit off and you can go much faster, but that's just the way apparent wind works...
I like it. Some people tell me I'm a bit off!
