For some reason I have forgot the name of the French kite, back in maybe 2001-2 or so, that was made from clear mylar, with stiff battens, and almost flat outline.
I think it was from the l'orient region ?
I have flown it myself, but it was not a huge success unfortunately
The idea though, was excellent, as it would have almost indefinite depower - only the drag from the camber when depowered, and nothing else.
Can anybody remember the name, or even better, find a picture just for old memories sake ?
(and no, it is not the Windtools Booster which was a C kite with battens and not a flat kite)
