The FDS is looking good in 10 knots in that wind range on your video :thumb:
but so as with the stock FLS in that range.

So I'd like to see doing the same to see the benefit of FDS in 20 knots winds,
because maybe it is only justifying BS.
I'm launching and landing with FLS my S3 DLX 15m in a similar area surrounded by trees,
so I'm not outside of the box :hangloose:

looks good.
FDS would be fine for me, for solo landing past 10knots. (easier to set up lines than FLS where the kite can twist), backstall +FDS.
have to see how the attachment points behave in higher wind.
