Did you see these...

http://www.horvath.ch/

I flew one at Washington, Tyne and Wear. They are very interesting (read that as 'superb') but once again the 'turning interval' is the key aspect to flying them successfully.

I think that we should develop the downwind race in light winds with the Revolution kites. Which model would be best now?

Those kites Daryl flies are amazing, I have 2 of them in smaller sizes and can sit in a chair while floating them all over the place.

Very delicate but lots of fun B)

Horvath gliders are pretty cool indoor kites I've been able to fly a few different ones (not as much as I'd like to) But I have to say I enjoy the Focus Skate lots more that's one great glider.

The way he handles the line is beautiful.

Jim,

I could not find 'Focus Skate'. Do you have further information?

(I flew the Horvath outside in a 'slight' breeze after the downpour on Saturday evening.)

Thanks

I remember the technique of 'slowing' the running line rather than 'stopping' it in order to generate effective wind speed. Would that we could do that with the Revs!

So we may need to run in the (effective) wind direction. How appropriate is that?
