The wind was measured by a windmeter at beach level and later also compared to the wind measurement by the local bureau of metheorology.Tom183 wrote:How was the windspeed measured?
And just how flat is this kite?
And what does it weigh?
Sounds like a close match for the Speed 17m (or at least, closer), but I'd have to try both in the same conditions.
From looking at the kite in the air, the kite seems flatter than the Switchblade. Not sure how it compares to the Crossbow as I didn't see one to compare.
The weight of the 17 is 9.5lbs or 4.3kg.
It would be cool to compare it with a Speed 17. Anyone????
It would be great to compare it along key dimensions (weight, turning speed, lift, hangtime, dewpower/wind range, relauncheability, up wind performance, etc.).
