The glider is exceptional at that... Perfectly balanced. ;)

It also breaks down and fits in a slender tube, not common for this type of kite when they're so light.

Materials are carbon, and an incredibly light plastic film of some kind.

Word on the street says they're about $60-$70 each, but well worth it in my eyes.

Here is a video I took with my phone, not the best as I was just figuring out how to use it.

This is at one of our Friday Night Fun Fly's a couple weeks ago. Zero wind with the Focus Manta.

haven't been on the forum for long.

i will tell you what i know about the current situation.

the Zen glider john flew in the camas demo was a gift as our blessings for JB+TK's communion.

it was designed by Sunny Lin and crafted by Daryl Yeh (Taiwan)

small :wing span:19"; fold down to 13"

Large: wing span:34", fold down to 22"

(i don't have my medium any more, so go figure.)

for the inquiry, Daryl Yeh can be reached via his youtube channel.

there is a waiting list for the zen gliders and Daryl is sorting out paypal thing.

hope this post helps.

yes, it is a wonderful glider that travels with me in my backpack.

ps: i do enjoy flying this glider while sitting and had used it for teaching people who needs to fly sitting down.

it brings great joy to those less mobile or simply like to fly in different ways.
