This video has been muted by YouTube. Not once, but twice! Annoyingly, YouTube offered royalty-free music when the original Pink Floyd soundtrack was not legal anymore. Looks like the royalty-free music lost its status, too. Not cool!

A few takes from an evening of flying my Talon Standard at my usual stomping grounds. This video nicely illustrates the following aspects:
- A top-level kite can make you look a much better flier than you actually are.
- The Jest of Eve Talon combines trickability with a huge amount of precision.
- Cell phone videos have come a long, long way. But a dedicated camera would still be that nudge better.
- It was not until I flew one of my older kites that I realized how easily careful kite designs can recover from tip wraps -- and how much I had gotten used to it. I purposely left a few tip wraps in the video to show how most of them can be recovered without a lot of tugging, many even in flight and almost unnoticed. The older (or cheaper) kites invariably need to land.

Thanks to Kris for filming. Great job for a first-timer! Thanks to Mark for making such a gorgeous kite. Thanks to you for watching.
