The water was nearly glassy calm today, but there was a slight ripple near the shore- probably a thermal created by warming air rising over the land and pulling cooler air off the water. I'd guess that it was in the 3-5 knot range. I tried the Mid-Vent with Race Rods on 75' x 80# lines. It took a bit of body motion (a step or 2 backwards) sometimes to keep it going during the lulls, but it did quite well. The Standard sail with Race Rods would've been less work, but I was quite impressed with how low the Mid-Vent flew with the light frame.



Photos please???

^sorry, I didn't take any pics today, even though it was a beautiful sunny afternoon. <_<

I took a few photos earlier this week when the weather wasn't as nice:

Ahhhh Cool! Thanks for posting those! :) For some reason I thought the vent was on the inner bars.

^the first photos that I saw of the Mid-Vent had the inner panels with mesh and the outer panels with iQuad logos printed all over the fabric. That's what Antman's sadly destroyed Custom was like.

I'd be interested to compare the flight performance of both versions of Mid-Vent.
