Is there 3m2 difference betwen both of them? Upper is 9m2 and seems quite big for 9m2.
Another wing has same spacing, so center strut is in same position for both.

Are you asking a basic maths question?

Yes 12-9 =3

So yes there is a 3m gap!.

9 seems quite big?! I'm going to guess that the 12 seems bigger!

Related question for plummet. If I have a 14m and an 11m, would that also be a 3m difference? :cool2:

I have measured my kites before they vary by about +/- 1 meter so a 9 meter kite will range between 8 and 10 meters in size, and a 12 meter kite will range between 11 and 13. So there will be somewhere between 1 meter and 5 meters difference in size depending on the manufacturer and year made.

From the picture it seems like there is somewhere around 2 meters difference in size between the kites.

And for everyone else responding no need to be a smartass.

For example here, i can't see 2m difference(12 and 10m2).
In my case maybe it is 3m2 gap.

Upper is 9m2 envy 12 year, which has good low end. Not sure about top end.
Lower is park 12m2, 11 year.
Envy is starting from 8 m/s, while 8 m/s can be driven with park as well.
When it is 12 m/s, then it is better to finish with envy or take smaller kite.
My next step is 5, but i hadn't tested it yet.

Ok i'll be serious.

You can only compare size for size in the same model.

Different types if kites will vastly different power outputs.

What you really need to do when you are using a split quiver of different types of kites is look at the wind ranges.

There is no way that's 2 meters. It seems more like 1 meter so probably the 12 meter kite is a bit small (maybe 11.5m) and the 10 meter kite is a bit big (maybe 10.5m).

Nobody really keeps track of the actual real kite sizes so it's something you have to be aware of.

I'm guessing the question is very simple, whether it is actually a 3m difference or not
