That's right Mike. I will be taking it along, just to play with, if it works well, then maybe I'll opt for a bigger one. My present one is 70 m2 -
These are a bit tricky to keep flying in bumpy conditions, you need to set the lines up with bungee "shock absorbers", once dialed in they work a treat, with no load on the rig.
Anyone else tried one?
go to leisure area.
P.S. These are a great safety
item, will get you to shore without a rig! Quite a few motorboats have them just for that.
