Has anyone seen this kite in person?

Video you can download

The design looks cool, but the pilot in the video isn't showing it off too well.
Either that or it doesn't fly too well...

It goes for $200 here in the states, including Dyneema lines and handles. I wonder what the handles look like, I couldn't find a photo.

:roll: and now for my original comment on the kite... :roll:

"I like the look even more so when its upside down. Flying wise it reminds me of watching some one that has just learned how to do basic stuff with a rev. I would not be too surprised if we found out that it does fly like a rev. It looks better the the airbow too."

I dunno if I want one, but I would like to try one.

It looks a little like the Spirit, but without the complicated kick-stand setup in the back. I think I see a sleeve for the horizontal spar.

The spirit flies pretty well, so this kite might too.
Anyone want to buy one so the rest of the club can play with it? :-)

I think that is tantamount to cheating. You have to ask yourself if it is worth it, your revs won't ever treat you the same again.

I actually have several quads that aren't Revs, but I only fly them for novelty once in a blue moon.
The Revs don't seem too jealous.
