Here's an old pic of a Vented Rev II- not sure if it was custom or a home modification.

Highly likely it is a self vented. I never heard of nor seen one similar from REV.

I'll take some pics of my B-Series Mid-Vent this afternoon.
I should call it Goldilocks, because it's just right. :wub:

what a great thread.

those are some nice early revs.

interesting progression to the current models, both full and mid vent.

Here's my new B-Series Mid-Vent. It's framed in Rev Equipped 4 Wraps. I think that a combination of Race Rods and 4 Wraps would see you through a very wide selection of winds.

I've flown it in winds from about 10-12 knots today and up to the low 20s yesterday. I tried flying behind a hill this afternoon to see how it does in light and swirly winds and was very pleased with it.

I even tried a hover one-handed over some very unforgiving ground, even though I'm no Steve De Rooy. B) The kite gave me that much confidence. It's a winner! :w00t:

There are some others out there Steve Matchett made some tea bags for The Flying Squad, mega vented logo rev 1.5's.

Also its worth mentioning double framing, in the pre sle days, then LE inside an SLE.

BTw when was the first Rev flown in a competition? would it be Lee at the great lakes events?

I am not sure, but it could have been Joe Hadzicki flying in freestyle. There was something written in one of the old kiting magazines, probably Stunt Kite Quarterly.

Do you have any pictures of Steve's Tea bags?

John you are the man most likely to know. Why did Revolution shift from horizontal mesh panels on the vented kites to verticle mesh panels and when was it?

I seem to remember the old Rev 1.5 with horizontal mesh flying very well indeed, maybe it is time to revisit that solution.
