They're just plain sexy!

I want one!

So what's the chance of seeing you guys in Europe,  we could really put on a big show at Berck.

Let's have some more photo's of the whole team as soon as you get them flying.

Let's have some more photo's of the whole team as soon as you get them flying.


This weekend, all 8 of us are at the Lincoln City Fall fest. There will be piles of pictures and new video.

And I for one would love to get back to Europe.   :D

John, when I saw your new team design I freaked!..., I knew, I wanted something similar but not identical. So with the help of photoshop, I played around a little and came up with my own color scheme. which is now  on order and should be recieved within the next couple of weeks. (no team colors are used)
I will be posting a pic as soon as my new 1.5 vented custom arrives. :D

Very cool Stryker!

You'll have to jump into formation with us, if we ever share the same field. ;)

Thanks!  :-)
Well the inspiration for the colour choice, obviously comes from my favorite Rev team : Team I Quad :-)
Naturally I wouldn't have the audacity to even ask to copy exactly, so used a complementry colour in place of your (I Quads) Team colours)
I love this kite, it's so smooth and my definite favorite and looks great in the air.
I'm going to have an SUL made up in the New Year and use White in place of the black and keep the purple and Aqua combination.

It would be an honour to share the same field with you guys, let alone fly with you. I would not embarrass myself in front of any professional flyer at this point in time. I still need to put in many hours of dedicated practice before I will have the confidence to fly in your presence.   :D

So back to the field I go to practice, practioce, practice, and when I'm tired, drink some more coffee and practice some more, untill I look like this  :shock:

No worries... I jumped into competition before I could hover the kite in a stable position, back when everyone flew in one class... The best fliers sharing the field with the novices.

That was the day I really started to learn. ;)

Unfortunately I have no one to show me the ropes, so I have to teach myself, with the aid of the advanced video, which makes the learning curve, just that more challenging.
I'm always up for a good challenge  
Well I can hover pretty well anywhere and in any direction, however, that is only one skill I have managed to accomplish, but yet to really master.
It's your personal videos and the videos of team I Quad, that give me the inspiration to become more proficient. And with lots and lots of dedicated practice, I know I will    :D

Very Sweet Indeed   :D  Thanks for sharing!

Although I don't or haven't flown indoor, I do intend to get myself a SUL for those zero wind days, which are all too comon here in Toronto, especially over the summer months. (Or just get a SUL frame set for my all fabric 1.5 and/or a UL frameset for my Sedgewick, which has standard 4 wrap) ........ Any suggestions and/or advice?

Thanks
Steve

Hi John, just a quick question.  Are you planning to use these outdoors as well as indoors and if so, what are the benefits over the SUL 1.5?

oh...... and very cool!

Stephen, these are primarily for indoor, but also for performing in absolute 0-1 mph conditions outdoors. ;)
