Very stable flyer that requires little wind. A great kite for falconry.

The most passionate and accomplished delta designer in the world, Dan Leigh's high-aspect ratio deltas fly at amazingly high angles. Unsurpassed for all-around flying ability, they're so good that people have been willing to wait up to a year to get one. Dan has been making them all himself and says: "If you can't wait, please don't order!" After 20 years of waiting for his kites, ITW finally started working with Dan. Sails are upgraded to a lighter Icarex polyester and the graphics are changed to make them look as good as they fly. One of Dan's most popular kites, this high wind pro is a high flier throughout its 6 to 24 mph wind range. The balloon keel prevents stalling during calm winds.

Dan Leigh's Deltas are one of the best if not the best kites to use for falconry or Kite Aerial Photography.
His kites are extreme stable flyers over a wide windrange and manage to obsorb gusts without a problem. The secret is in the design and the fine balance of materials used.   
Dan used to just make his kites in Wales, but due to popular demand Into The Wind now procudes a rangeof his kites under license.
