Test today for a last chance at photographing from the helicopter before Dudu goes back to Brazil. The wind was gusty and disappointingly low, but an unusual wind direction and some unexpected wildfire smoke made for good lighting and unique camera angles. We measured each of the bridle segments on the 25 sqm KW kite this morning and photographed the leading edge to check for asymmetry, but found nothing off. It does have wingtip battens that are smaller than those in the the 20, 30, and 40 sqm versions of the same design. Erika joined us again today, as did Roland Verheul.
