Good idea
I tried an oval.. thats a nutball circle + the centre rectangular sections added, but this didnt fly as nicely as the heart shape..

I didnt try a simple circle bent to a W so thats definately worth a try...

I use 30 degree swept forward elevons which give increased area for more effect and always work the folds on the same ratio.. divide the span by 3.. then half the centre section..
use the same angles 110 centre and 135 tips as thats the geometry that works best

When I finish my latest kite project I will give this a go.. probably as a KFm4 at 26"-28" on the circle in 6mm.. or perhaps as a 26" using all 3mm depron for a floater
