SURF 8 & 12 for the waves. RENEGADE 6.5 and 9 for all around kiting. And some times I use my son's JUNIOR PRO 4 when it blows 45+ for the waves.
Just try the EPICKITES and you will see for yourself.

Hello TurcoLoco. I am not sure about the cost of the plane but all I know is that we had to use a plane like that so we can fly it in strong winds (18 to 25 mph). Plus this plane did crash few times on me while in the air and fell in the water but nothing happened to it. The maximum time in the air was 20 minutes and then they had to land and change the batteries. The camera they used was a GoPro.
I hope this info helps.

I want to see a Drone or plane measure Actual wind speed at kite level instead of all this pontificating.
