The grid flying is 'awesome' but I guess that my opinion on that may be judged a bit biased <grins>

 

Thanks Ben for the reminder...

<snip>  The Zen almost rides out of sight, literally hundreds of feet, even dragging the abandoned handles underneath

 

I reckon that one of 'Ben's competitions' in light wind should be a downwind race.  I went for a walk with a 1.5 with diamond rods recently.  Two long pulls took it pretty much back to the top of the window...

Felix,
I was so sure that the (***) was going to be for "patent pending" for the treacle style of flying...

 

No way... I have been advocating this for a long time but have not had much feedback.  I'll say it again 'flying the 1.5 kite slowly is interesting' and doing so in 'normal windspeed' can potentially help when trying to fly in 'low winds'.  That is my experience anyway but YMMV <grins>

PS this is full sail not 'glide mode'...
