You will see more kite when the video is done.

Toby when will we see it? Another few weeks to finish filming and edit?

That's my guess,

@westozzy I sold my rebels just because they packed horribly.
Battens are the result of poor design. Simple as that.
The rebel is a disaster in terms of shape and it needs 5th line and a dozen of battens to make it rideable.
I like the rebels don't take me wrong. But their design is very old dated.

Now I have Parks and I can't be happier about how easy is to pack and travel with them.

I am very intrigued by the Neo and as soon as they switch the quad bar from double flagging to single I will get one

Battens are expensive. That is why most companies do no use then even of they work great in any design
Never had a problem packing :-)
Sold rebels just because did not like too much how they fly

Not to say I'm right or anything... But the video looks ok

The hang at 30sec looks nice. Didn't look like a ton of wind but the kite seem to preform well.
You have something against yellow kites @50sec? that f'n funny and you ended up landing a back roll out of the crash.

Well what do you think? low-med wind ok?

Talk....
