Little daylight and a tight schedule before the Holidays makes for less flying. 😥
However, here’s a bit more on the Lanyork Yellow. I chatted with a friend of mine about it and below you can find a quick recap.
My first experience with the kite was in its upper (and above) wind range and it felt very fast and sometimes hard to control. I didn’t quite connect, but patiently awaited better conditions.
And it paid off. When the winds were much lighter, the kite was a lotmore fun!
It takes very little input to move it around so you need to fly it gently, with feeling. But when you have tuned your input right it’s pretty smooth.
Clockwork is kind of tricky, because (I think) because it’s so responsive. Smooth bicycle rotations are a treat… as long as your input is subtle. Nice catches and throws too.
Some times (more often than with any of my REVs) I have pulled the wind out of the sail and lost the pressure. Then the kite just falls to the ground and if lucky, I can yank it back into flying again … or not.
I had to lengthen the front lines a little to have the kite to brake the way I like. But that’s only tuning.
The line set is really good and takes quite a few twists. (All right… One pair was an inch or so longer than the other pair but no big deal).
Can’t say much about the frame other than one extra rod was included.
The handles look and feel just fine.
Value for money? Yes, I really think so! 🙂
