I am getting much delight from sending my 19m Fuel into flight. I've only had it for 2 or 3 days, but from what I've seen so far, this is the best big and powerful LEI kite that I have flown. You shouldd give one a try when the opportunity presents itself.

I am having fun with the F-One Mach I 18.1m. This is my most used kite in the last 9 month about 80% of the time. Planing and going upwind in 8 to 10 miles wind on a 6'4" directional. Jumping @ 10 mph. @ 10 to 12 mph switching to TT-142.
The fun starts in 15 gusting to 18 mph with this kite, which requires somebody holding me down on launching and landing the kite for my 60kg weight.
@ 15 mph the hangtime is incredible and anything over feels like never will be landing = "This is why"

The most powerful kite that i've flown is a 20m AERO. loads of bottom grunt but pretty slow and hard on the steering. Upwind in 7 - 8 knots on 6 ft underground Directional.

I have also used a 8.5m C Quad... not quite as much power as the 20m AERO but much much faster turning so on longer lines this kite would be quite something.. needs to be set up right however. Wakeboarding in 10 knots with this kite and can sine it like a stunt kite.. ie fast.

Is it easy to sine the 20m AERO II in light winds?? How fast turning is it compared to the 20m X2 and 20m AERO I ?
