That all makes sense. Now assuming the same aspect ratio kite, same model make etc.is hang time a function of kite size?. For example 10m ozone edge vs 13m ozone edge
That's an interesting question.
One I can answer as I have a 13m edge and a 10 edge.
The 13m will glide for longer at the same height.
But if you send both kites in the same wind ie 22 knots boosting off the same a wave ramp (like King of air) which kite jumps further and longer?
The answer to that is the 10m!
Why? its faster to turn, can get up to speed faster, can be sent faster and takes you higher and longer than the 13m edge!
Opposite to what I initially thought, Which was take the biggest kite you can hold down and that will give you the biggest jumps. Not so!...
