Eclipse 2008 versus 2009

Postby richswing » Fri Oct 10, 2008 12:03 pm

Hey Guys,

I have looked at the 2009 Nano and I can see that the kite is different , with different wings tips and slightly higher aspect. I prefer the 2008 graphics, the 2009 looks a bit simpler I suppose to keep the cost down.

Other than the graphics on the Thruster I can't notice much difference, the construction looks better than my 2008 Nano - strut canopy joins looks much stronger.

I saw the 6m Kima, haven't seen a 2008 6m Nano but looked the same to my 9m. On the larger size can they still overfly.

Whats the performance difference between the Nano's and has anybody flown both Thrusters - is the 2009 Thruster easier to relaunch.

Any idea?

Cheers
Rich :bye:
