Good to see you here, Mr Hansen! I guess there is nothing new under the sun... Good kites look similar?
However there is room to design details differently and trying to achieve desired flying characteristics. Kiting has diverged to many disciplines giving more chances to specific kites than ever.
Usually I prefer kites with powered turns, because it makes active flying more sensible and fun. But when I practiced backroll kiteloops I was pleased kite I was using had a pivotal turn
I've not seen this kind of low AR foil kites very interesting projects because they are so much simpler and have inferior performance to high AR kites. But trying to do it better than before gives a challenge anyway, and simplicity makes kite much more easier to finish which is of course nice.
I'll start kite something like in this thread probably quite soon, after I've finished design process. Low AR and low cell count (now 17) will be there, but many details I've not decided yet. I need some kind of reason for every one of them, nothing comes by itself.
Thank you Stef for your work for foil kites and also for that interesting interview. I didn't know you are the admin of LesFoilz (also because of my french is rubbish), I appreciate it a lot
