i disagree strongly.
have you all forgotton how your 20m aero will pick you up and spit you out on a gusty day when your 20m x2 is easy to handle.
explain why the kite with the least vertical lift when static would have the greater tendency to pick you up. higher aspect kites are less efficient vertical lift producing wings when staitc and they have greater depower, typically.
fire them up at an angle yeh, off you go but thats not lofting, thats being dragged down the beach overpowered.
I haven't forgotten!! That 20m AERO is a fun kite in gusty stuff... no give whatsoever...
But in gusty stuff we shouldn't be holding out kites straight above us now should we?
