JOJO 3.5M² (WINGS Flugsysteme)
Wings - Flugsysteme
The Jojo is an elliptical design and was one of the smaller kites in the test. The sail
was very well made with Mylar reinforcement on the front of the risers. The air intake was
open and the kite had a thin looking section. The bridles were separate with an
interesting braking system with the wing-tip brakes linked to the main bridle. No handles
were provided with the kite.
The Jojo launched easily and flew well provided that the kite was kept moving forward. At
speed it generated power beyond its small proportions and speed and power would turn on
and off very suddenly making it quite a handful. The kite didn't hold the edge well when
flown from the ground, but had a very quick rate of turn when flown at speed.
The Jojo showed some good speed and generated traction when 'powered up". Although
the kite turned quickly, it was difficult to coordinate buggy and kite turns consistently.
The kite required a lot of
care to prevent loss of power and consequent loss of speed. The violent acceleration and
power turning on made it something of a handful.
The Jojo is a very fast kite that generated a lot of power given its small size. The kite
turned very fast when at speed but was inconsistent and required a skilled pilot for
buggying. The violent surge of power makes it not one for the inexperienced!
