very windy test flight with the new Flexifoil Storm III
we have found out why Aaron Hadlow is currently leading
the PKRA rankings!
Storm III 12m >
The first thing you notice about this kite is the amazing
speed of the turn rate - it caught me out when redirecting
the kite after a jump - with a quick flick of the bar the
kite is where you want it and is powered up ready and waiting.
You've all probably gone for a turn and slowed down a bit
having to work the kite to get going again, but with the
STORM III - the powers almost there all the time on demand
no waiting for the kite to get pick up speed.
This is one of the best jumping machines I have ever used
and has very little carry downwind and I was able to almost
immediately perfect tricks that I have been trying to get
dialled for ages.
Build Quality >
A neat little gadget is the deflation T pieces attached
to the velcro closures..as all the bladders are one way
a god-send when in trying to inflate the bladders. The deflation
is even simpler - just pull the stoppers put in the T piece
in and instant deflation. The overall build quality is its
usual high standard.
This is an intermediate to experienced flyers kite who not
only want the relability of a stable kite but also the handling
and control needed to complete manoeuvres.
