First flights are encouraging and the Red Hot 20 lifts 300g in Bft 2 reliably.
Measured up it looks a lot like other foils but the key differences are in the fabric and the chord profile:
The plan reveals a taper from front to back, steeper but similar to the taper Ralf Beutnagel uses on the KAPfoil.
In 8-12mph it lifts 480g gently, slowly raising the load on a wide J curve. Surface temperature was 30 deg today and that means unstable. The kite was shifting across the principal direction with lulls causing the camera to drop. I flew between 2 and 4pm.
Below the camera the Green Dragon bridge caught my eye, it’s surrounded by tall trees and I have never been lucky shooting it, until today:
