Any one checked out the new Fire bee kite for buggying? Go to http://www.kiteworld.co.uk. Well cheap, but flies wicked and is modelled on the airea kites.

I didn't find any problems with the build quailty!! Have you tested the kite yourself?
Why do you think it is poor build quality?

The quality is really good. I bought all three sizes and tested already with buggy. Good impression, and the relation between price and performance, unbeatable.

It's me again, I just checked the UK sites and saw the prices. Extremely too high!!! Try to buy from Germany.
For your info:
Firebee 2.0 Euro 79,00 = StPound 49,00
Firebee 3.0 Euro 109,00 = StPount 68,00
Firebee 6.5 Euro 238,00 = StPount 148,00

Buying from Germany is ok, but if you live in the uk or the states what about warranties or guarantees?

It is definately not that Rhombus bought any license from Airea. However Rhombus said that their design is similar to the Raptor I.
If you understand German, her is the written statement from Rhombus:

Rhombus ist seit 1984 Drachenproduzent in Deutschland und international
tätig. Wir vertreiben unsere Drachen mit Produktion in China weltweit.

Die Lenkmatten Serie "Firebee" ist neu im Programm und nach dem Start im
letzten Jahr mit der "Rowdy 4.5" als Powertraction Parafoil die konsequente
Einrichtung einer neuen Rhombus-Linie.

Ihre Frage ob es sich um einen lizensieren Nachbau der Raptor von Airea
handelt kann ich mit nein beantworten.

Die Firebee Series ist eine Rhombus eigenständige Serie die sich natürlich
an auf dem Markt erfolgreich Modellen orientiert aber dennoch nicht in
Lizens gebaut wird. Da Rhombus in China sehr gute Produktionskapazitäten hat
können wir auch mit sehr guten Preisen auf dem Markt die Matten anbieten.

mit stürmischen Grüßen
Carsten Maass
Rhombus GmbH

Also Airea rejected over phone.
