This guy goes to slow motion video when he jumps. I'd suggest to check Tone's videos as reference hang time.

Here is the original jump no slomo.
9 sec jump ?

To be fair a normal jump with the 12m Chrono is about 6sec in moderate winds but when it picks up you can easily stay up much longer. Been out in 9-12m/s and jumped higher and longer than with my 9m Edge which is (was) my nr1 boosting machine.

No downloop. Just a ordinary 2m high loop.
I can post a vid on it tomorrow.

In the video up there, I call it a down loop. I do the same thing for jump transitions... with the Speed3s, you have to time it right or else you get warp factor 9 downwind as the kite goes through the power zone and just keeps accelerating. It can be... entertaining. Especially if you get hit by a gust as you through the kite around :o
