Flying a Rev 1 with 4wraps LE
Posted 24 April 2008 - 04:57 AM
I love my B-series std and the 1.5 vented. However, the Segdwick Rev 1 is giving me a little problem . It tends to oversteer and carries a lot of inertia during turns. Precision drops and I find is more difficult to have snappy, precise control. Vertical hovers require much more attention to keep steady. It tends to sag at the wind edges when flying horizontally across the window. It's just more tiring overall to fly than a 1.5 as I have to watch not to overcook turns.
Is that a characteristic of the Rev 1 or is that my technique issue? Does it require much more elaborate actions? I fly with the B-series handles and either 4wrap or 2wrap LE. I've tried various settings on the pigtails but none seems to offer a sweet spot.

Just watch some of John Barressi's older routines with his blue fade Rev I to see what it is capable of.
It does require a firmer hand than the Rev 1.5 or Rev II- it can feel like a bit of a truck at first, but once you get the inputs right, it is a beautiful flier.
I'd recommend using lighter sticks than the 4 Wraps, unless the winds are blowing.
