The Black Edge at the NKM

Do you remember the Black Edge kite I made about a year ago? Off course it was in the kite bag for the NKM and I got to fly it as well!

The AERIALIS Team Flyers had their own “playing ground” at the Rømø Kite Festival where we did a lot of display flying; dua lined kites quad lined kites and also routines combining the two. But off course, we had to take a few breaks team flying which can be quite tiring at times.

So in one of these breaks, I pulled the Black Edge out of its bag and started tossing it around in the somewhat bumpy offshore winds. This kite is kind of … well … different. The sail is of some kind of ripstop nylon of which the type and manufacturer are unknown to me. It’s a somewhat heavy fabric, thus having an impact on the kite’s flying characteristics. The leading edge is also quite soft and combined with the heavy sail, the kite twists and turn more than a few of my other kites when in the air.

The bridle is also somewhat different compared to the ‘standard’ QKL bridle setup, and you can take a closer look at both the soft LE and the bridle in the photo below if that’s of your interest! 🙂

The Black Edge is also giving you a somewhat different feel in the air compared to quite a few other QLKs, and it can take some time to get used to this different feel and somewhat different input required to get the most of this kite. But when you get it right, it’s a really fun kite to fly and it really shines in the FlicFlac department!

So here we go! Me having a good time flying the Black Edge at the Rømø Kite Festival!

Feelin’ Funky flying the Black Edge!
