Since no news on the 2013:
I just picked up a Dyno LTD 17m (closer to the 2013 than the 2012). Only used it once in light gusty conditions, but my initial impression vs. my 2011 Dyno 18m is that it is faster turning, less stable, lower aspect ratio, and better relaunch.

Can't comment on twin tip jumping, there was barely enough wind for the twin tip, so switched to my raceboard.

Less stable might have been because of the gusty wind, Will have to try the two kites back to back to be sure. I fell on a tack and the kite tumbled out of the sky in about 10 knots. From my experience with the 18m, I don't think the 18m would have done that in this situation, so it surprised me. The 18m just seems to hang there in the sky no matter what.

Also flying on the same bar that works perfectly for all my other North kites, had to pull the trim strap most of the way in (4 inches) to stop the kite from oversheeting and backstalling :-?

Hopefully some line adjustment and steady wind will clear this up.

... thanks Davesails7!

Thats sort of bad news for me as the backstalling/oversheeting thing is what my 2012 Dyno did and I dis-liked it for that very reason. I too did the same, adjusted lines ect but never really got it right so only use it occasionally now hence hunting for info the 2013!

The old 18 is super stable indeed, I think the 17m needs speed or apparent wind to become stable unlike the 18m.! The whole idea of a big kite is to be efficient at low wind speeds with power and the 17 seems to lack that, to me anyway!!

Still wanna find out more about the 2013!!

cheers,

Robbie :)
