Can anyone tell me about the Peter Lynn G-Arcs. Flying caracteristics, how it compares to a rhino 2? Thanks

I fly a G-13 and G-18 and love them both, but I prefer when there's
enough wind for the G-13 as that is the sweetest kite I've ever flown.
:D :D :D

so true! I fly the g18 and g13. The Guerillas have 4 lines and a bar and so do the rinos. That's probably the ned of similarities. the g has no bladders and inflates itself while you run out your lines. the g is not adversly affected by gust and does not fall out of the sky in a lull.
The g does not hindenburg and when you run way under it or down wind of it, it does not luff and collapase. It spreads it's wings as it drifts back into the power. I've not flown the rino you mention, so i can only compare the Guerilla with Wipi and Nash that i have flown--as well as other foils--Mosquito, JOjo, and Psycho. i've only loaned my Guerilla to one non-ARC pilot and he liked it for the short time he tried it. It all depends on what you're after.

I fly g-13 and g-18, best kites ever, super floaty and super high jumps, turns a beginner into a pro.
watch out all, too much talk about foils being great kites will lure Pump me up to spread his gospel about lei's. It's already bad enough that he has to contaminate every post(even ones that pretty much have NOTHING to do with foil vs inflatable) with his words of 'wisdom'. It's funny what money does to people nowadays =(.

I have the full line of Guerillas and I have a Rhino 2 20m. THe Rhino is the best inflatable that I have ever come across, and nothing in the Guerilla line can match the Rhino for low wind grunt. It turns well, is quite stable (for an inflatable), has a huge range, and can stay up in very light wind. A real banner kite for North!! But... when the wind comes on, the Guerillas are amazing! There is nothing... NOTHING... that can even come close to a Guerilla for stability. If you haven't tried one... you just don't know. When these kites are flown in the upper end of their range, they are a blast. Especially the smaller ones. Big floaty jumps with looooong hang time. If you stuff a jump, they simply do not fall out of the sky. I prefer to ride the Guerillas, but if you can put a Rhino 2 20m in your quiver, along with a couple of PL Guerillas you will be a happy kiter.

I also love my G-13.

As for flight characteristics, it has a unique but VERY cool quality that I call "auto pilot", which keeps the kite going in the same direction for a VERY long time with no pilot input, even if the lines go slack. This means it will stay overhead while you adjust your footstraps, & it will stay at whatever height you park it, even if you wipe out, or make the lines go slack by losing your edge or turning straight downwind (or even PAST downwind - perpendicular to the lines - great for wave riding). It also can fly WAY back behind you without crashing (in very gusty winds, or when screwing up jumps).
