The newest kite to my collection is the newest kite to the Peter Lynn range. The Peter Lynn Hornet. The Peter Lynn Hornet has a similar grunty feel to the Peter Lynn Pepper II and is in the beginners kite range to intermediate (with bigger sizes 5m plus), with improved stability and ground handling.
I currently own a Flexifoil Strike 5m, Flexifoil Blade III 3m and a Flexifoil Stacker 6. I have been flying for around 4 years give or take a year due to illness. I have been wanting to try out flying a different branded kite from the flexifoil range due to flexifoil being one of the most well branded makes in the powerkiting industry.
I decided that i wanted to purchase a kite to landboard on that was slightly more predictable than the Flexifoil Blade III for a beginner, so I decided on a 4.0m Peter Lynn Hornet to do the trick bearing in mind that im about 14 stone, the Peter Lynn 4.0m seemed the ideal choice!
The complete package packed away in its bag is very lightweight, and easy to carry. The rucksack is of a new design and is big, i mean big. Easily fits the Peter Lynn Hornet with lines and handles in with ample room to put in a packed lunch, a few beers, knee pads, and elbow pads. There are also straps of elastic that has allowed me to attatched my harness and helmet to the outside.
Bearing in mind I only recieved the kite today, the kite couldnt have been easier to setup. The whole set is colour coded, numbered 1,2,3 etc of the connections needed to be made. 1 goes to 1, etc The Peter Lynn Hornet is user friendly and this feature must have been the designers main aim when building this kite.
The Peter Lynn Hornet delivers a smooth and stable flight that is really predictable in comparrison to my other kites, however this is exactly what I wanted in order to be able to learn to landboard and buggy.
This kite is really obedient and gives you ample time at the edge of the window until you give it a new command to move it. The build quality of the Peter Lynn Hornet is stunning and greater than I expected for the price Ii have paid for this kite. Kitelandboarding need not be expensive. A small price tag on such a good kite is unbelievable. Just what I've wanted!!! This kite has no bad points so far. Excellent choice for entry-level to intermediate kite flyers.
My first power kite, before that a big fan of stunt kites.
I bought a 3m one to learn control and the Peter Lynn Hornet is an amazing kite to do so. It has a very stable pull with stability on the edges of the window.
Lines come pre-stretched and no feeling of "jelly-fishing" was observed. I tested kite in winds 2-6bft in both: stable seaside winds and in-land winds.
The Peter Lynn Hornet is good to learn control in weak winds and to learn how to control power in stronger winds. Despite my beginner's skills, after 2 months the kite still looks and flies as it was a brand new one.
I received this kite overnight from Powerkiteshop and I was delighted with the kite and accessories.
The kite was a joy to fly and was totally controlable and predictable. The kite was exceedingly well made and inspired total confidence.
I would have no problem in recommending this kite to a powerkite newbie as it is easy to set up, easy to use and very good value for money.
Ordered one day, arrived the next! Fantastic quality kite, great lines. Kite is really responsive and easy to fly. Brake lines worked perfectly with no need for any adjustments.
Kite nicely flies backwards when asked to, and turns easily on tip with brake turning. Looks great. Good power for size. Would recommend highly. Oh, and a nice rucksack too!
