The PFK Super Kite
Although my injured PFK Nighthawk received a good repair a couple of months ago I wanted to get a new one. Given the cost of shipping 12,000 miles from New Zealand isn't cheap, I thought I'd also buy a PFK Super Kite too to justify the postage (flawed logic?).
The weather has been pretty trashy for a long time so today was one of the first opportunities to give the Super Kite its maiden flight. Below I share a video of it in-flight along with observations.
I'm not sure how many Super Kite owners there are out there (Pierre, Jim?) but would welcome any thoughts on swapping the traditional wooden spreader for an 8mm carbon one. My old Nighthawk received a carbon spreader transplant 9 years ago and it was a total success. I see no reason why the smaller Super Kite would be negatively affected by the same treatment.
