Looks like it took awhile to inflate.

What, like 6 seconds??

As far as turning goes, in the video it looked very similar to what I’d expect from my V2 but it’s really difficult to tell.
Still tempted though...

It actually looks like he sped the vid up a little. Inflation time is kinda big if you are solo launching in strong winds. Does Ozone provide a 12 month warranty like Flysurfer does? I bought my only Ozone used (chrono 1 18m) so I don't know. You would think at it's price, they would.

People are moaning about the price with no consideration to the amount of material or time it takes to build one of these kites.
In my experience leis are great for people learning. The general unforgiving nature of crashing a foil kite into water demands a better kite flyer in the first place. Then you can realise the possibilities a foil kite brings with it. But then it's just a tool as is any kite. You get what suits you best and your style.
Would be nice to see if the v3 is noticeably better than the v1 or v2 and in what ways. But I also think it's great to see a manufacturer showing a foil kite with a tt as a lot of people I've met think they are for foil boards only or simply haven't seen a foil kite before.

Flysurfer doesn't provide the 12 month warranty for the Sonic range (FR, 2 and Race). Quite understandably.

Whether or not the kite was pre-inflated it looked like a text book launch to me.

Interesting design changes. Chrono v3 has less cells than v2. It's inline with reported improved stability. What about freerace performance?
