I've got a Best 3m trainer kite that I love for static flying. I use it with a harness rigged with a leash and quick-release on the fixed chicken loop. This lets me fly it in some pretty stong wind conditions (don't worry Stacey--I only fly in wide open areas with nobody around, and I don't try to do any jumping). I have a NavMan M300 GPS-based speedometer designed for windsurfing. It's small enough and light enough that when I attach it to the two innermost trailing bridle lines it doesn't seriously effect the kite's performance. I have regularly hit maximum kite speeds of over 50 mph. I had one record of 106 mph, but I think that must have been a hiccup on my NavMan since I haven't come close to duplicating that speed in similar conditions. Anybody out there try clocking their kite speed in a similar way (or better way)? The NavMan probably registers only horizontal speed. It would be fun to add the vertical component to get actual kite speed.
