The Deep Space is one of Tim Benson's most current creations. You will find new ideas of construction with roll bars,
integrated glides, and detailed perfections from tip to tail. The precision of its construction is shown off by its taught
fitting sail. The Deep Space comes in eight colors schemes.
Dimensions, specs & cost
The width of the Deep Space is 7' 0", weighs 9.75 oz. and is rated for 3-18 mph. (It is more like 5-18 mph. My
rating is based on how much wind it takes to keep it in the air without extraneous effort, and not by the manufacturer's
specs.) I purchased my Deep Space from The Kite Connection for $278.00.
The Deep Space clearly has capabilities in flight that I don't have the piloting skills to take advantage of. Based upon what I
can do with it, I am very impressed with its performance.
