it flies quite well, the lift is not as hard as the 2001 kites...
the upwind-performance is not as good as for example the arx, but it's enough
after dropping it, one sharp look is enough
you know, this kite WANTS to go back into the air.
if you ever managed to relaunch a tubekite, you won't have any problem at all.
turning speed is quite ok ...
i use mine from upper 5 bft to upper 6bft ...
