by the way, the selfmade nasawing is made out of 21 gramm per sqm ripstop nylon! now that i call a lightwind maschine :-)

regarding opencell kites on water: there is a very nice video of kitelehrling surfing with his ozone yakuza in virtually no wind:

and an impressive 720° circle while in zero wind while just walking:

this is light wind magic !


Those vids are great , that 720 is amazing
How about adding projected aspect ratio to the list?
I also don`t reckon a kg or so spread over 19 square meters makes too much difference to the kites ability to fly ie compare FS standard and delux fabric figures. of course added to one wingtip which is so easy :roll: ...

here, my personal new light wind kite - the pl twister 7.7 -- massive amounts of power even in 5 knots, but sadly also a slow truck that tends to collapse after a jump,if you don't watch it.

Code:
+----------------------------+------+-------+------+------+-------+----+
| Kite                       |   A  |  pA   | pA/A | mass | m/pA  | UR |
+----------------------------+------+-------+------+------+-------+----+
| Peter Lynn Twister I       |  7.7 |  6.7  | 0.87 | 1.30 | 0.194 |    |
+----------------------------+------+-------+------+------+-------+----+


and a weight correction for the ozone zephyr from 5kg to 4.1 kg:
Code:
+----------------------------+------+-------+------+------+-------+----+
| Ozone Zephyr 2009          | 17.0 | 12.7* | 0.7  | 4.1  | 0.323 |    |
+----------------------------+------+-------+------+------+-------+----+


can someone please approve this?
