They are very addictive. Your quad line purchases certainly will not end at that B-Series.

Hi TRS,
Sometimes with little winds, we still go out and fly an indoor Revs, its a disease we can't find a cure for it, we need to fly with or without winds.
Cheers,
chris

Welcome to The Darkside :big_starwars:

This is not like duel line at all this is a whole new ball game. Whereas duel-line is about, giving up the kite and letting gravity and the wind take control of the it, then you grabbing it back at in just the right way at exactly the right time to achieve the desired results, Rev flying is generally more about precision and maintaining control.

For a beginner and especially a beginner who is crossing over from duel-line, a very important lesson to learn is “it's nearly all in the wrist action”. A piece of advice I given is, keep your elbows tucked into your side, imagine you have a belt wrapped around body and upper arms, then you will have to fly with your wrists. You will eventually use whole arm movements but you need to learn the wrist control first.

ENJOY

You forgot to mention it is a quieter sport... the kite and the ppl than dual line kiting. ;)

TRS,

I know exactly what you are feeling! I attended the Kite festival in Wildwood a couple of weeks ago and demo'd a Rev 1.5 Standard for the first time and purchased one on the spot. Later in the day Ben let me fly his B-series and I had to have one. I ended up buying the B-series the same day. I am now on the hunt for a good deal on a vented B-series. 3 Revs in 3 weeks sounds insane but I have caught the bug!

Enjoy,

Mark

I don't know about "quieter," it's certainly more sociable. Once you get a little bit of experience you can stand and chat with other fliers in the same space without having to concentrate too hard on the kite. That's half the fun, being able to chat :)

You obviosuly have not experienced the families who yell and swear at each other when attempting dual line stunt kiting as a recreational thing to share
(to the point of anti-social) :(

Oh I see what you mean, the numpties, it's best to ignore the numpties.

I was referring to the serious duel-liners. And anyway the yelling and swearing is not confined to duel-liners, I've seen Rev newbies falling out over a failure to launch as well, the difference is I am able to offer them help.

not just the numpties either *;-/

actually we rescued a numpties delta last w/e.... poor kite was thrown across a path and into some bushes....
no wonder they couldn't get it to fly, Mr Numpty (main yeller) hadn't even put a main spar in it!

No one seems to want to ask for help - it's a thing called pride that gets in the way.
Sailor has a similar story regarding a struggling power kiter.

Actually he was a young guy trying to impress his girl friend with his flying skills with a 4 foot 'power kite". Unfortunately he he could not launch it, which singularly failed to impress his girl friend. Eventually his girl friend came over and asked for my help in getting the thing to fly! If only I were 30 years younger and single!
